"Frozen Marigolds/margaritas found in the mouths of Arizonans" lol
There might be correlation between sun and earth magnetism which rule out global warming.
Yes its a 1 in 500 lifetimes event. More probable than our house burning down. Yet we don't insure against it. Our minds likes to see permanancy in all things. But nature is a different animal.

That pole has been gradually shifting; but some are calling this natural shift 'global warming'. We humans haven't experienced an extreme shift in our lifetimes..but it could happen. Frozen Marigolds/margaritas found in the mouths of Arizonans....
The last time that Earth's poles flipped in a major reversal was about 780,000 years ago, in what scientists call the Brunhes-Matuyama reversal. The fossil record shows no drastic changes in plant or animal life. Deep ocean sediment cores from this period also indicate no changes in glacial activity, based on the amount of oxygen isotopes in the cores.
In the past, solar storms have caused power grids to fail. With a magnetic field some 20 fold weaker than it is today, solar electromagnetic radiation could have far greater impact on electronics than ever before.
NASA has projected that the next solar cycle will be 30-50% lower than previous putting it at Dalton minimum levels.
The panel agreed that Cycle 25 will be average in intensity and similar to Cycle 24.
The strength of the Earth's magnetic field has been declining for several hundred years (and it is still stronger than it has been in the past 50,000). Solar activity, not so much.
Which suggests to my mind that the energy from suns and earths magnetic field have a common source.
