If the compass suddenly points to the south
The earth's magnetic field shrinks for some years in rapid speed, north and South Pole could soon the places exchange. First consequences become already apparent: Satellites fail suddenly, cosmic radiation penetrate strengthen the protective shell of the atmosphere. W SUCH AS KNOWLEDGE asks, what means the development for humans and nature.

The "magnetic field" is decreasing here is an article that shows and explains this.

When the compass suddenly points south ( Magnetic Pole Flip, latest SHOCKING news, 2005 )
Magnetic Pole Flip, Magnetic Field disappearing - latest news : among the facts that are now revealed to the public : the magnetic field over the South Atlantic Ocean is now so weak that planes and satelites have now been forced to change their routes.
Among the facts that are withheld : Beryllium 10 analysis in polar ice cores in Alfred-Wegener-Institut in Bremerhaven , Germany, shows human life a few thousand years was IMPOSSIBLE on earth.

"Nina Anderson, commercial pilot and author of "Atlantis Today – The USA, Poised for Destruction" thinks we are seeing the results of interstellar changes. Our planet’s position within the Milky Way is receiving many cosmic anomalies that haven’t been experienced in 10,000 years when we were in a similar cosmic position causing the last pole shift to affect the planet. As explained in the book, Mythology and archeological findings link that event to the destruction of the continent of Atlantis and other highly-advanced civilizations of the time such as the Rama (present day India.)"
In other words, silly science.
Look, people, we know that the magnetic pole shifts on a fairly regular basis, although it hasn't done so for about 700,000 years, IIRC.
We know that it has done so -- and even when it has done so -- by measuring the magnetic striations on mafic rock (mostly basalt and gabbro) oozing from the divergent boundary between the North American and Atlantic Plates. This was done back in the sixties by Vine and Matthews, and you can find more details at maps.unomaha.edu... .
But the idea that there's any connection between these changes in the Earth's polarity and any large-scale volcanic or seismic series of events -- or of life-form die-offs -- is completely bogus.
The reason we know it's bogus is that we can tell pretty closely when large seismic and volcanic activities took place by the geological record, and those events simply don't correlate to the measured shifts in the Earth's magnetic field. We also know, based on the fossil record, when ther wer major species die-offs (the Permian and K-T ones come to mind) and there's no correlation with die-offs and magnetic field shifts, either.
