Over the past 200 years, the Earth’s magnetic field has been
getting weaker. Researchers believe that this could be a sign
that the poles are about to flip – and the consequences could be
“dire,” according to some scientists. If a flip happens, it
could knock out power grids, alter the climate, and expose us to
solar winds that could puncture the ozone layer.

The poles have switched regularly throughout Earth’s history.
The last time they flipped was 780,000 years ago. Since the
poles normally switch every 200,000 – 300,000 years – according
to NASA – we are well overdue for a change. Over the last two
centuries, the magnetic field generated by the Earth’s molten
core has weakened 15 percent, lending further evidence to the
fact that the poles are getting restless.

If the poles flip, it could confuse animals that rely on
magnetic fields for migration, and it could lead to more
radiation from the sun reaching life on the planet, according to
studies. This would lead to an increase in the incidence of
cancer – or at least require us to protect ourselves better from
the sun. In a worst-case scenario, the flipping poles could wipe
out power grids by damaging satellites that control grid
infrastructure and could impact the climate by changing cloud
cover.

According to researcher Daniel Baker, we don’t know for sure
when the poles could flip. The poles have been known to shift
and move, ultimately snapping back into place. And while it
certainly wouldn’t be a doomsday scenario for the planet, it
would be wise to prepare for the event, so that the impact isn’t
challenging for humanity.

Kill all the liberals because they are nothing but useless
eaters in the first place and have no survival skills.

It is a slow process and it will not suddenly flip. It is
even being observed by the locals as we speak. They
can tell by observation of where they use to have
landmarks on the horizon
