Earthís magnetic pole is on the move, fast. And we donít know why

Earth’s magnetic field is what allows us to exist. It deflects harmful radiation. It keeps our water and atmosphere in place. But now it’s acting up — and nobody knows why. Planet Earth is alive. Deep beneath its skin, its life blood — rivers of molten iron — pulse around its core. And this mobile iron is what generates the magnetic field that causes auroras — and keeps us alive.

But, according to the science journal Nature, something strange is going on deep down below.

It’s causing the magnetic North Pole to ‘skitter’ away from Canada, towards Siberia.

“The magnetic pole is moving so quickly that it has forced the world’s geomagnetism experts into a rare move,” Nature reports...

Earth’s magnetic poles move. That’s why they have to keep renumbering airport runways.

Are Donald Trump, Chuck Norris, and Magneto in the same square mile again? I’ve asked them not to do that.

The poles have flipped numerous times.
They will again.

Yes, we learned long ago in the army that you had to use a map’s date and then apply a formula to get the current north and then use it for nav. If one didn’t do that, it would put you way off.

The pole is moving towards Siberia. The Russians are stealing it. Somebody tell Mueller quick.

Let me take a wild guess here,...…. The industrialized and Prosperous, Western Civilization(s) and of Course Man, are to blame! I can’t wait for the headline....”All prosperity must stop! This will only be accelerated as Trump invokes the forbidden (private) freedoms of capitalism!”

There is no such thing as Climate Change, - it’s called the Seasons.

Some things have no answer.

But man is vain...and he's sure he can "make up" an answer....with enough grant money on the table.

“Earth’s magnetic pole is on the move, fast. And we don’t know why”

Another man-made catastrophe in the works?

Poor countries most affected?

Magnetic Pole Tax and/or Magnetic Pole Offset Credits coming soon?

Could be that pole shifting is the cause of climate change, which has nothing to do with cow farts.

As part of my job I periodically check the magnetic declination. Trust me, it hasn’t moved that much. But we know it’s always moving a bit.

Some will say it’s Trumps fault. A border fence will help stabilize the magnetic field. Build the WALL.

now it’s acting up — and nobody knows why.

The core of the earth is a dynamic system under great strain and pressure.

Dynamic systems change all the time. Even on a geological scale.

It's like when you stir a pot of hot tomato sauce. Even as you stir it to even the temperature steam bubbles form and break the surface splattering hot tomato sauce all over the stove, counter top, and floor you just cleaned.

So, what you’re saying is that the earth is fixing to splatter hot tomato sauce all over us?

Those of us who still like to use an old-fashioned compass rather than GPS etc for navigation, either in the mountains or on the water, have always been accustomed to adjust the bearing for magnetic deviation: so that it's always been necessary to know the current deviation, specific to the location, between true north and magnetic north. Good topographic maps have always shown this, together with the anticipated average annual change from the date of publication: but of course this information soon becomes out of date. The advent of websites showing the current deviation for any location on the globe has therefore been very welcome. They're doubtless going to be very busy given this rapid change.

Incidentally I can see nothing in the report which claims this acceleration has anything to do with climate change.
