Magnetic earth, and solar, polar shifts and reversals for 2012

- – – – – – – – – – – -

Rumors are going around that a polar reversal of the earth will occur in 2012, and the earth will be destroyed. Actually, a polar reversal for the earth is not known, although the magnetic field is in a constant state of change, and the magnetic pole is moving. A polar reversal for the sun is known, and will occur in 2012, at the peak of the current solar cycle 24.

Earth’s Inconstant Magnetic Field

-

Our planet’s magnetic field is in a constant state of change. Scientists have long known that the magnetic pole moves. James Ross located the pole for the first time in 1831. In 1904, Roald Amundsen found the pole again and discovered that it had moved–at least 50 km since the days of Ross.

The pole kept going during the 20th century, north at an average speed of 10 km per year, lately accelerating “to 40 km per year. At this rate it will exit North America and reach Siberia in a few decades. Compass needles in Africa, for instance, are drifting about 1 degree per decade. And globally the magnetic field has weakened 10% since the 19th century.

Sometimes the field completely flips. The north and the south poles swap places. Such reversals, recorded in the magnetism of ancient rocks, are unpredictable. They come at irregular intervals averaging about 300,000 years; the last one was 780,000 years ago. Are we overdue for another? No one knows.

Above: Magnetic stripes around mid-ocean ridges reveal the history of Earth’s magnetic field for millions of years. The study of Earth’s past magnetism is called paleomagnetism. According to NASA, the ongoing 10% decline doesn’t mean that a reversal is imminent.

The center of the Earth is where the magnetic field is produced. At the heart of our planet lies a solid iron ball, about as hot as the surface of the sun. This is the “the inner core.” The inner core is 70% as wide as the moon. It spins at its own rate, as much as 0.2o of longitude per year faster than the Earth above it, and it has its own ocean: a very deep layer of liquid iron known as “the outer core.”

Above: a schematic diagram of Earth’s interior. The outer core is the source of the geomagnetic field. Earth’s magnetic field comes from this ocean of iron, which is an electrically conducting fluid in constant motion.

Reversals take a few thousand years to complete, and during that time–contrary to popular belief–the magnetic field does not vanish. It just gets more complicated. Magnetic lines of force near Earth’s surface become twisted and tangled, and magnetic poles pop up in unaccustomed places. But it’s still a planetary magnetic field, and it still protects us from space radiation and solar storms.

Above: Supercomputer models of Earth’s magnetic field. On the left is a normal dipolar magnetic field, typical of the long years between polarity reversals. On the right is the sort of complicated magnetic field Earth has during the upheaval of a reversal. [More]

NASA Details Earthquake Effects on the Earth

-

NASA scientists using data from the Indonesian earthquake calculated it affected Earth’s rotation, decreased the length of day, slightly changed the planet’s shape, and shifted the North Pole by centimeters. The earthquake that created the huge tsunami also changed the Earth’s rotation. Dr. Benjamin Fong Chao, of NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Md. and Dr. Richard Gross of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif. said all earthquakes have some affect on Earth’s rotation. It’s just they are usually barely noticeable. “Any worldly event that involves the movement of mass affects the Earth’s rotation, from seasonal weather down to driving a car,” Chao said. They also found the earthquake decreased the length of day by 2.68 microseconds. The quake also affected the Earth’s shape. They found Earth’s oblateness (flattening on the top and bulging at the equator) decreased by a small amount. It decreased about one part in 10 billion, continuing the trend of earthquakes making Earth less oblate. -

Earth’s Magnetic Field Reversal

-

(http://www.spacedaily.com/news/earth-magnetic-04a.html)

-

Earth’s magnetic field reverses every few thousand years at low latitudes and every 10,000 years at high latitudes.

Possible energy ramifications of diminishing magnetic field need to be explored. For example, how long will it linger at zero before reversing? Seeing the powerful earthquakes such as the December 26th, 2004 event that triggered the tsunami disaster, people are looking for possible causes for the apparent instability of earth’s crust.

The weakening of earth’s magnetism is one of the factors believed to be predictive of a pole reversal. That magnetic field reversals have occurred in the past is confirmed in the geological record. What is unclear is how precisely the transition occurs, and what happens to life forms extant at the time of this pole flip.

Does the magnetic field drop to zero gauss? Dire predictions follow upon the heels of this theory. Electronic devices would all be at risk: there may be damage to, or complete loss of, all near-earth-orbiting satellites and possibly the space station itself. Effects on life forms could range from migrating birds losing their sense of direction to immune system decline and even widespread die-off from radiation-induced cancers.

Losing its protective magnetic envelope, the atmosphere would expand and become thinner, possibly leading to altitude sickness near sea level. No longer filtered out, deadly cosmic rays would kill most if, not all, living creatures on the surface. Only those living in deep caves would be safe. This scenario has prompted some to build underground bunkers in hopes of surviving.

Countering this frightening vision, NASA predicts that, rather than declining to zero gauss, the magnetic field would become disordered. Thus we might for short time have more than one north and south pole on the planet. This official scientific stance says that the magnetosphere which shields us from cosmic radiation would not entirely disappear either

Thus, while communications would be erratic and perhaps at times completely inactivated, humans would find ways to survive. However, there are dissenters in the ranks, pointing to the vast South Atlantic magnetic anomaly and radiation damage to satellites over that region attributed to weakening of the protective magnetosphere. -

The Solar Magnetic field and solar cycle 24

The sun reverses its magnetic field like clockwork every eleven years at the peak of the sunspot cycle. The next solar flip is due in 2012. South-pointing magnetic flux moves from sunspots, which are intense magnetic loops near the equator of the sun, along “meridional flows” to the north magnetic pole, and vice versa. As the oppositely-directed charge accumulates at the poles the field declines, until eventually the reverse charge predominates. -

Scientists point out that the heliosphere does not wink out of existence during this reversal. The sunspots are intense magnetic knots, much stronger than the star’s main field, which continue to spiral outward even when the main dipole field vanishes briefly.

The Sun Does a Flip

-

The Sun’s magnetic poles will remain as they are now, with the north magnetic pole pointing through the Sun’s southern hemisphere, until the year 2012 when they will reverse again. This transition happens, as far as we know, at the peak of every 11-year sunspot cycle — like clockwork.

Earth’s magnetic field also flips, but with less regularity. Consecutive reversals are spaced 5 thousand years to 50 million years apart. The last reversal happened 740,000 years ago. Some researchers think our planet is overdue for another one, but nobody knows exactly when the next reversal might occur.

Although solar and terrestrial magnetic fields behave differently, they do have something in common: their shape. During solar minimum the Sun’s field, like Earth’s, resembles that of an iron bar magnet, with great closed loops near the equator and open field lines near the poles. Scientists call such a field a “dipole.” The Sun’s dipolar field is about as strong as a refrigerator magnet, or 50 gauss (a unit of magnetic intensity). Earth’s magnetic field is 100 times weaker.

-

The earth will be more affected by the sun in 2012, than by its own magnetic pole shift.

-

Sunspots are places where intense magnetic loops — hundreds of times stronger than the ambient dipole field — poke through the photosphere.

Meridional flows on the Sun’s surface carry magnetic fields from mid-latitude sunspots to the Sun’s poles. The poles end up flipping because these flows transport south-pointing magnetic flux to the north magnetic pole, and north-pointing flux to the south magnetic pole.

The dipole field steadily weakens as oppositely-directed flux accumulates at the Sun’s poles until, at the height of solar maximum, the magnetic poles change polarity and begin to grow in a new direction.

Changes in the Sun’s magnetic field are carried outward through the heliosphere by the solar wind. It takes about a year for disturbances to propagate all the way from the Sun to the outer bounds of the heliosphere.

  3. wow I’m going to die!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. very persudo, its time we saw real hard science on this 2012 matter, i belive somthing will start off from 2012 but its not too clear as yet to me what it maybe, but i am leaning towards a solar flare for one. and of course the causes and effects of our suns cylcle end and cycle start.

    this is mostly bull shit on the website, but with tiny grains of truth

    no get the act together!!! we need hard supportive science on this matter

    the ancient mayans and egyptians it seems knew what this cycle is all about, there whole life was heavly intergrated with this knowledge

    its there records and history we need to look at
    but it requires a proper translation
    not some persudo science and not religious miss interpetation crap

  5. Hi James,

    I agree that scientific evidence should accompany any claims about earth changes for 2012. As a scientist, I try to do this, even when the actual topic is outside my field. I hope I present the information well enough for others to understand, and see the point.

  6. Does the change in the magnetice poles affect climate?

    • Hi kari

      So far, by itself, the small changes in the magnetic pole over the past 100 years, has not had a significant effect. Climate is affected by many things.

  7. btw James, it’s spelled “psuedo”…don’t you have spell check?

  8. The truther girls…funny-I like this lady :)

  9. What does the Polar Shift mean? It could mean more quakes, volcanos and tsunamis. Why is it happening? King David gives the answer in Psalm 77: “You, Hashem, do wonders. You have made Your might known among the nations.” How true – just look at the media clips of how the tsunami threw bridges, houses, cars and ships around like plastic toys.

    All these messages are designed to put the awe of Hashem on our faces. I don’t envy a person who ignores these phenomena and returns to business as usual. There’s still a little bit of time to make teshuva out of love. Don’t wait to make teshuva out of fear – it’s worth much less. This week before Purim is a great time to come back to Hashem.

  10. When12 21 2012 comes all the refrigerators are going to turn upside down!

  11. I have read on this and find it odd that scientist can tell this happens to the Sun, a place they cannot step on but cannot figure out when it will happen to the earth. Even if it did happen on earth there is no saying a mass destruction will occur.

    I seriously thing there is a greater possibility that the sun will release a giant flare at the earth in 2012 than than the earth poles flipping.

    • hi nisroc00

      I would agree with that. Solar flares are fairly common, and there have been cases where flares knocked out large power grids, and people were without power for a while due to them. The bible indicates a point where the sun becomes intense and people burn with sores.

      The only place where a pole shift is predicted is in Isaiah, where the earth is turned upside down. It is in the “day of the Lord,” so that is also something that can happen. How this affects the land and water arrangements remains to be seen, but by then, I hope the righteous are all in heaven, so we don’t have to find out the hard way.

  12. Well, I do not understand this:
    Earth’s magnetic field reverses every few thousand years at low latitudes and every 10,000 years at high latitudes.

    That change in elevation involves GAS PRESSURE right? Like from sea level to a mile high? So at sea level the pressure is high so the magnetic field is able to reverse often and rapidly? At Denver or Tibet then the atmospheric pressure is so thin that there is very little change in magnetism. Explain how. Thin o2, thin H2O, more nitrogen? How does pressure affect a magnetic field? How much pressure can a magnetic field hold?

    • hi katesisco

      this pole shift is not related to elevation or pressure.

      it is connected to an object in the heavens passing near the earth and tilting it over.

  13. I have no doubt the earth’s magnetic poles will shift as well as earth’s wobble. My question, as well as millions of people, is how will this affect our world? I believe in the Mayan count. But I don’t believe that December 21, 2012 is the end. Both the sun’s magnetic feild and the magnetic field from the sunspots reversed at around the same time that the Maya disappeared. The combined magnetic disturbance led to infertility and genetic mutation on Earth, the effects of which were most severe in equatorial regions. Sunspot activity casued a mini-Ice-Age, in which the ensuing reduction in the water that evaporated from the oceans let directly to a drought in the Maya homelands. This was the root casue of the decline of the Maya. So with that said, the Mayas did survived. They had to abandandon their homes in search of new lands. But they survived. I believe it is a new beginning and/or the Mayan calendar will reset; go back to the beginng and it all starts again. I believe the shifts that will take place will change the climate in certain parts of the world. Agriculture will be our biggest challange during the beginning of the adjustment period. Relocating millions of people around the world due to inhospitable living conditions will be another huge challange. People will have to learn to unite as humans and not be divided by race or country and religion. All in all, this could be a bunch of crap and nothing will happen. All we can do is wait and see who is proven right and who is proven wrong.

  14. MARIANNE
    HAVE YOU READ THE WORK OF DAVID WILCOCK?

  15. Marianne
    David Wilcock is a younger man, around 40 or so, but nevertheless one of the most interesting writers around these days.
    He combines in his research countless approaches which range from traditional over fringe science, metaphysics, mathematics, religion, occultism and so on, too much to list.
    I have been driven to find my own answers for about 35 years and realized, that from every hundred books I read, 90 weren’t worth the time.
    Since the dawn of the internet finding information is much easier now.
    In that time I gained the ability to be able to determine the value of somebody’s “output” and when I accidentally came across his writings
    (never heard of him before) I was immediately intrigued because I realized, that I can follow him completely and respect his conclusions and I believe, I even learned a few new things!
    His writings provide a rare clarity and have a nice logical structure, with an amazing variety of included research – all with links to that particular pieces.
    His “model” of the earth’s magnetism (plasma core) and the process of polar change takes a different approach – to much to talk about here.
    I very much recommend spending the time on his writings, it is worth it!
    the site: http://divinecosmos.com/
    To avoid confusion, the best is to read some of his on line books (free)
    in sequence, go to: http://divinecosmos.com/start-here/books-free-online
    and read: The shift of the ages, The science of oneness, The divine cosmos . The end of our century – a fascinating study about cycles – you can read out of sequence. Afterwards I recommend – The law of one study guide – an edited version of the Ra channeling.
    Some of this work is over ten years old, nevertheless ageless.
    He has some quirky fascination with conspiracies, which I just overlook (no time for that) and also his occasional inclusion of UFO’s research is not of importance to me but still making sense in a remarkable way.
    Once you understand his approach, his articles and blogs are very interesting to browse.
    I hope you find the time.
    Best Wishes,
    Walter

    • dear walter

      I have heard of him vaguely, and just read his biography.

      He seems to have a life long experience in the occult, and dreams, and no scientific background.

      Channeling is demonic, and a red flag.

      So, his experiences are subjective.

      However, even subjective experiences can be correct.

      I can take a look at some conclusions he has , to see if the “science” in them seems logical.

      I a a biochemist myself, so there are certain ways to prove things, and I would look to see if he used those methods

  16. Dear Marianne

    I agree if it comes to channeling. None of these little bodies of work of him
    I mentioned though contain any.
    The Ra channeling he quotes from time to time is not his.
    He does a good job though in condensing five books (Ra) into
    “The law of one – study guide” in which he excavated useful information to make his point.
    I consider the Ra and to some degree Seth channeling as the only ones worth reading, because the “scientific facts” mentioned, turned out to be true over the years and the importance of not influencing the free will (of the reader) is held in highest regards. When you read it as a scientist, it doesn’t “rub you wrong “, it sparks interest. In case of Ra great care is taken not to confuse entities and avoid (as much as possible) the distortion of information. The (channels’) intellectual capabilities are by far not high enough to be able to put their own “two cents” in. I get the sense of truly good intentions .
    To me it only provides supportive material – good for a comparison with all other opinions and theories. (Ra and Seth are holding up)
    David doesn’t provide much (if any) subjective experience in that regard. His efforts consists in rounding up other peoples work to describe and explain true reality. In that regard he displays a wholesomeness which is rare in my opinion.
    I am an economist from Germany and I can show you one set of numbers and read three different results out of it.
    Science as a matter of approaching these (spiritual, metaphysical) subjects has to be used with great care – sometimes the rigid ways of thinking are preventing us to see the right questions to be asked.
    Isn’t observing an experiment using your senses (as a highly individual – subjective experience) the only way?
    Even if five people look at the same experiment, you have five different subjective experiences.
    Can you measure the influence of something on atoms with instruments made out of atoms watched by a body made out of the same?
    How do you take in consideration the influence of the observer’s consciousness on the outcome of the observed experiment?
    Definitely defies scientific logic as being used so far.
    “Old” science is fighting “new” science to preserve the existence and value of old theories necessary for needed funding.
    So do we really want “logical” science (in quantum physics for instance),
    couldn’t our logic prevent us from realizing the true character of reality to its fullest extend because we are not aware of the influence and rigidity of our own believes which underlie that logic?
    I am not so sure about scientific methods of prove, nevertheless I accept them as an additional measuring stick to see how something holds up, not without exposing that “prove” to a high level of scrutiny also.

    Best Wishes,
    Walter

    • hi walter

      Science requires measurable results which can be repeated with further testing. opinion only comes as a conclusion.

      Something is either true or it isn’t. That is the bottom line.

      Sometimes measurements are not possible, because we do not have the tools for that “observation.”

  17. Hi all,
    I know these figures are not at all accurate, they are a simple few equations explaining the rate of increase the north pole is moving to how long it would take to become the south pole.

    Earths Circumference is 24,901.55 miles. half way around is 12450.775 miles.
    Current North pole movement 40 miles a year. So 12450.775 divided by 40= 311.26 years to flip at current rate.
    Old rate of movement, 10 miles per year. So the speed has quadrupled in half a century. So, this will continue to exponentially rise?
    A rise over the next half century if quadrupled will be around, 12450.775 divided by 160 miles = 77 years until it reaches a full flip.
