The shield that protects the Earth from solar radiation is under attack from within. We can’t prevent it, but we ought to prepare.

ONE DAY in 1905, the French geophysicist Bernard Brunhes brought back to his lab some rocks he’d unearthed from a freshly cut road near the village of Pont Farin. When he analyzed their magnetic properties, he was astonished at what they showed: Millions of years ago, the Earth’s magnetic poles had been on the opposite sides of the planet. North was south and south was north. The discovery spoke of planetary anarchy. Scientists had no way to explain it.

Today, we know that the poles have changed places hundreds of times, most recently 780,000 years ago. Sometimes, the poles try to reverse positions but then snap back into place, in what is called an excursion. The last time was about 40,000 years ago. We also know that when they flip next time, the consequences for the electrical and electronic infrastructure that runs modern civilization will be dire. The question is when that will happen.

In the past few decades, geophysicists have tried to answer that question through satellite imagery and math. They have figured out how to peer deep inside the Earth, to the edge of the molten, metallic core where the magnetic field is continually being generated. It turns out that the dipole — the orderly two-pole magnetic field our compasses respond to — is under attack from within.

The latest satellite data, from the European Space Agency’s Swarm trio, which began reporting in 2014, show that a battle is raging at the edge of the core. Like factions planning a coup, swirling clusters of molten iron and nickel are gathering strength and draining energy from the dipole. The north magnetic pole is on the run, a sign of enhanced turbulence and unpredictability. A cabal in the Southern Hemisphere has already gained the upper hand over about a fifth of the Earth’s surface. A revolution is shaping up.

If these magnetic blocs gain enough strength and weaken the dipole even more, they will force the north and south poles to switch places as they strive to regain supremacy. Scientists can’t say for sure that is happening now — the dipole could beat back the interlopers. But they can say that the phenomenon is intensifying and that they can’t rule out the possibility that a reversal is beginning.

It’s time to wake up to the dangers and start preparing.

The Magnetic Field Is Shifting, The Poles are flipping, This Could Get Bad
The Magnetic Field Is Shifting. The Poles are flipping. And This Will Get Really Bad. This animation shows the movement of the north magnetic pole at 10-year intervals from 1970 to 2020. The red and blue lines indicate “declination,” the difference between magnetic north and true north depending on where one is standing; on the green line, a compass would point to true north. Visual by NOAA National Centers for Environmental Information

The Earth’s magnetic field protects our planet from dangerous solar and cosmic rays, like a giant shield. As the poles switch places (or try to), that shield is weakened; scientists estimate that it could waste away to as little as a tenth of its usual force. The shield could be compromised for centuries while the poles move, allowing malevolent radiation closer to the surface of the planet for that whole time. Already, changes within the Earth have weakened the field over the South Atlantic so much that satellites exposed to the resulting radiation have experienced memory failure.

That radiation isn’t hitting the surface yet. But at some point, when the magnetic field has dwindled enough, it could be a different story. Daniel Baker, director of the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics at the University of Colorado, Boulder, one of the world’s experts on how cosmic radiation affects the Earth, fears that parts of the planet will become uninhabitable during a reversal. The dangers: devastating streams of particles from the sun, galactic cosmic rays, and enhanced ultraviolet B rays from a radiation-damaged ozone layer, to name just a few of the invisible forces that could harm or kill living creatures.

How bad could it be? Scientists have never established a link between previous pole reversals and catastrophes like mass extinctions. But the world of today is not the world of 780,000 years ago, when the poles last reversed, or even 40,000 years ago, when they tried to. Today, there are nearly 7.6 billion people on Earth, twice as many as in 1970. We have drastically changed the chemistry of the atmosphere and the ocean with our activities, impairing the life support system of the planet. Humans have built huge cities, industries and networks of roads, slicing up access to safer living spaces for many other creatures. We have pushed perhaps a third of all known species toward extinction and have imperiled the habitats of many more. Add cosmic and ultraviolet radiation to this mix, and the consequences for life on Earth could be ruinous.

And the perils are not just biological. The vast cyber-electric cocoon that has become the central processing system of modern civilization is in grave danger. Solar energetic particles can rip through the sensitive miniature electronics of the growing number of satellites circling the Earth, badly damaging them. The satellite timing systems that govern electric grids would be likely to fail. The grid’s transformers could be torched en masse. Because grids are so tightly coupled with each other, failure would race across the globe, causing a domino run of blackouts that could last for decades.

The Magnetic Field Is Shifting The Poles May Flip This Could Get Bad. In this animation, the blue lines indicate a weaker magnetic field, the red lines a stronger one, and the green line the boundary between them, at 10-year intervals from 1910 to 2020. The field is weakening over South America, and the red area over North America is losing strength. Visual by NOAA National Centers for Environmental Information

But these dangers are rarely considered by those whose job it is to protect the electronic pulse of civilization. More satellites are being put into orbit with more highly miniaturized – and therefore more vulnerable – electronics. The electrical grid becomes more interconnected every day, despite the greater risks from solar storms.

No lights. No computers. No cellphones. Even flushing a toilet or filling a car’s gas tank would be impossible. And that’s just for starters.

One of the best ways of protecting satellites and grids from space weather is to predict precisely where the most damaging force will hit. Operators could temporarily shut down a satellite or disconnect part of the grid. But progress on learning how to track damaging space weather has not kept pace with the exponential increase in technologies that could be damaged by it. And private satellite operators aren’t collating and sharing information about how their electronics are withstanding space radiation, a practice that could help everyone protect their gear.

We have blithely built our civilization’s critical infrastructure during a time when the planet’s magnetic field was relatively strong, not accounting for the field’s bent for anarchy. Not only is the field turbulent and ungovernable, but, at this point, it is unpredictable. It will have its way with us, no matter what we do. Our task is to figure out how to make it hurt as little as possible.

  1. oh, here we go with this again….lies lies and lies…I bet these people think niburu is here every year too

    • Sic Semper,
      Nibiru comes around ever 300-350 years and will cause the Trumpet Judgmentsof Revelation to be poured out on planet earth. And they did lie in their years. The earth is only 6000 years of age from a creation point of view. There was an axial poleshift when the Flood occurred 3600 years ago approximately. The Bible speaks of at least 3 poleshifts.

      • no it does not The Script says the Earth is flat set on it’s foundation and can not be moved in Psalms 4x Isaiah and 2 Chronicles In Genesis it says God separated the waters to above the firmament and below the firmament with the Sun, Moon and stars IN the firmament. NO outer space just water, and no South pole so no flip

      • Johnny Ash…He said she said. You pull out the bible and i trump it with “The Law of One”. One is manmade, the other is universal law. So let others comment how they want. You don’t know any better then him or I. Any article of quote you come up with i can find a counter arguement. We all think we know better because we read others work and take it to heart. The issue is when you force that knowledge onto others as their truth instead of letting them find their own…

  2. like the EMP hoax narrative , there is no facts to support
    this
    either
    we have CGI images and tales of doom … no facts

    here are some facts
    there is a barrier of unknown , that neither Russia nor USA could breach using nuclear weapons in the late 50s early 60s
    see operation fishbowl and operation starfish prime
    nothing comes in , nothing goes out

    dont believe me or anyone else , look it up for yourselves to see what is real ,

  3. If the poles shift, I thought TH earth would also flip…there’d be no land masses left and everyone and everything on earth would drown…….?? And since it’s already happening, I doubt we could do anything to stop it ..like I,proving our atmosphere, stop all underground nuclear testing. Stop underground use of such devices as experiments to create black holes…particle excelerators, and sound experiments …. too late.

  4. On the Day of Rapture, there will be an axial poleshift.

    The Day of the Lord will be poured out on planet Earth beginning on Day of Trumpet 2017 and run till Sept. 19, 2018. Rapture Day has a global earthquake (axial poleshift) and 400 million people disappear and all the children by God. Those who wholly follow the Lord get raptured.

    a shift or flip of the geographical poles (Isa 24:1, 18-20, 23; 38:8). The gravitational pull of the strange star’s mass will cause the earth to slow down and maybe bring it to a complete halt (Josh 10:11-13–Joshua’s Longest Day). The tilting earth will create a “slosh” of all the ocean water that is now bulged up around the equator due to the centrifugal forces of earth’s spinning motion. As a result of these shifting and moving water masses there will be:
    1) tsunamis and violently rising ocean levels up to 400 feet (120 meter); Hab 3:10–Overflowing water passed by. Amos 9:6; Amos 5:6-8; Nah 1:8 (flood)
    2) flooding of all coastal areas and an eventual recessing of these oceanic waters into the earth’s crust.
    3) shifting, lifting and sinking landmasses.
    4) landmasses sinking into and rising out of the ocean.
    5) tidal, crustal and rogue waves.
    6) 200+ mph (320+ kph) winds as the jet stream is coming down to ground level affecting the entire globe. Wind: Gen 8:1; 41:6,23; Exodus 10:13, 19; Job 1:19; Psalm 148:8; Isa 41:16; Jer 4:11-12; 51:1,16; Ezk 13:11, 13; Ezk 19:12; Dan 2:35; Hos 13:15; Rev 6:13.
    7) more tornadoes and regular hurricanes. Whirlwind Job 37:9; Isa 66:15; Jer 23:19; Jer 30:23
    8) hurricanes over land.
    9) shifting of the climatic regions and seasons.
    10) change of the length of days and of the calendar (Matt 24:21-22; Mk 13:20).
    A disruption in the Earth’s rotation in either speed (normally 1,000 miles per hour) or direction (a pole shift).

    • The “rapture” Prophets for PROFIT are ANTI-Christ DEATH CULTISTS. God/Jesus put you in this LIFE to learn “soul lessons”, to increase your consciousness to the point of Redemption. Hagee and his Ilk REJECT the LIFE God gave you, and dangle a “shortcut” in front of people, just as SATAN dangled Temptation in front of Jesus. Do not follow the ANTI-Christ lies of FALSE prophets. There will be ONE Judgement Day, and NO ONE is going to “bypass” it by being “raptured”, that is a lie from Satan and his television IMPS. Their “shortcut” of cheating God’s lessons does NOT lead to Heaven, any more than cheating on school work teaches you the subject. Hagee, Robertson, the whole group, do NOT believe in anything except the MONEY they collect for leading their Flocks astray. From the Hagee church on down to Pat Robertson, it’s all ANTI-Christ. I don’t believe their savior would’ve approved of fat bank accounts & massive multi million dollar buildings. Christian institutions today represent the most perverse translation of Christianity
      http://www.jeff-goodall.com/?p=8955

      The problem, is the belief system of Christian Zionists. They believe that what Israel wants is what God wants. Therefore, it is perfectly acceptable to give the green light to whatever it is Israel wants and then conceal this from the American people. Anything, including lies, theft, even murder, is justified as long as Israel wants it. Then why did JESUS suffer on the cross!?

      With more than 50 millions members, Christians United for Israel is a major politica force in the U.S.. Its Chairman, pastor John Haggee, declared: “The United States must join Israel in a pre-emptive military strike against Iran to fulfill God’s plan for both Israel and the West, […] a biblically prophesied end-time confrontation with Iran, which will lead to the Rapture, Tribulation, and Second Coming of Christ”. Have you ever LOOKED at HAGEE — at best he is a glutton ….

      “rapture” is actually a vicarious form of SUICIDE. “rapture” is an extremely SELF-ABSORBED way of saying “I am SO perfect” and anyone I dislike will be LEFT BEHIND to suffer(feel bad because I am gone) but I will revel in heaven.
      One of the major problems America faces is a large population of religious fundamentalists who have become as fanatical in their own way as any Middle Eastern Ayatollah. At present, they are caught up in their own version of the myth of the end of the world, and hope that by working to bring it about, they’ll get to sit at the right hand of their diety and to hell with everyone else. No doubt fistfights will break out over who gets to sit closest, but that is a subject for another article.
      So fervent is the belief of the mythoholics that they are ready and willing to sacrifice money, children, civil rights, freedom, even life itself (so long as it is someone else’s) to bring about the final rapture and end of the world. Never mind that the story of the Rapture appears nowhere in the Bible, but was the invention of a Civil War veteran, Cyrus Scofield. Never mind that the present-day charlatan selling this belief might be a child molester and makes money off of these fables; the seekers (and there is one born every minute) do so want to believe!
      “The Incredible Scofield and His Book” written by Joseph M. Canfield, reveals the following:Cyrus Scofield is a small time politician and career criminal. In 1873, he is forced to resign his position as a District Attorney because of crooked financial transactions that include accepting bribes stealing political contributions, and securing bank notes by forging signatures. Scofield then serves jail time for forgery charges. A heavy drinker, Scofield later abandons his wife and two daughters. His wife finally divorces the drunken crook in 1883. As so many con-men do, Scofield will then claim to have “found Jesus”. He is ordained as a Minister and then claims to have a Doctor of Divinity degree, but this degree is never verified. After several mysterious trips to Europe and New York, Scofield publishes the notated reference Bible that bears his name. scofield’s wife divorced him when he went to prison for mortgage fraud. Scofield defrauded his mother in law out of her life savings and went to prison. supposedly he was “saved” in prison and wrote his Bible notes. His “Bible” sold hundreds of thousands of copies and made him a rich man. Scofield never repaid his mother in law for the money he stole from her and per his two daughters he never paid one penny of support to either one of them.The added side notes in Scofield’s Bible inject a very weird “End Times” prophecy into Christianity.

    • Brother add me in fb name is Paul Anton Perera.you doing great work brother prepare men to 2nd coming of our saviour Jesus

  5. 4) landmasses sinking into and rising out of the ocean.

    I believe this will happen near future to create the New Earth. We need to prepare for ourselves. The time to graduate from 3rd dimensional Earth is near. We should decide to ascend or descend. If you choose the ascension, you should be heart centered that means live with unconditional love. Look up the sky! Sky gods are watching us. Youtube “Heart’s Intuitive Intelligence: Unlock Your Heart Electromagnetic Power” has interesting information.

  6. The link between the electro-magnetic field and gravity field will become obvious to all at some point.
    They are doing a good job covering it up for now.
