(...) we have several of "Our Systems" working fine out beyond earths magnetic field and in the case of Cassini and the Mars rovers they are working in extreemly different magnetic environments than Earths with no problems. Pole reversal will not effect our electrical systems although some navigation systems may have some problems when the poles move drasticaly.

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.

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.

Don't magnetic fields have anything to say on how the electric currents work in our systems? Will there be some kind of reverse polarization as a result? I hope not! Last time I tried to mount a the wrong cable onto the car battery, It had a strange effect!
