Recent posts on polar shift , weather patterns , global warming , earths quakes , volcanic activity , are they all related to the shifting of the poles. I think they are , and looking at the posts and related links in ATS , does it make sense that because of the reaction of a polar shift causes electrical interference in animals and in the weather and in the earths crust as in earth quakes.. Your input in this matter may explain why where is was cold is now getting warmer and where it was warm is now getting cooler , also may explain droughts that may be coming to areas where no droughts have happpened , before , again thanks for your input and many blessings.

Alaska will no longer have it's Northern Lights.
The poles shift every so often. It's a natural thing.

Natural yes , it is , but could this explain earh quake activty , weather patterns, global warming , etc..thanks for you input .

Earthquakes occur every single day of the year. And always have. The weather is chaotic and always has been. And even if global warming isn't a direct result of carbon emissions, recent changes are well within variations in global climate that have occurred over the past 12,000 years.

In other worlds, there's nothing abnormal happening, and nowt to worry about.

You also have to remember that global communications have changed our perspectives. Even 50 years ago you'd have been unaware of most earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and extreme weather events.

As for magnetic pole reversals, there a good explanation of them here: gsc.nrcan.gc.ca...

Yes and no.


... a polar shift causes electrical interference in animals and in the weather and in the earths crust as in earth quakes..


I believe you're looking at two different definitions of "polar shift": one (a magnetic pole shift -- or reversal) which happens on the average of every couple hundred thousand years; and a shift in the axis-of-rotation poles which could only happen if the Earth were impacted by another planet (in which case the Earth would probably turn into another asteroid belt).


The first 'polar shift' is a reversal of the magnetic poles. No one is ablsoutely sure why this happens, but we know when it happens by looking at the way certain rocks in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean are magnetized. We know that this happens about once every seventy thousand years on the average (if I remember correctly); and we also know it's not a catastrophic event, since there is no correlation between these magnetic field reversals and die-offs in the geological and paleontological records. Admittedly, some species which migrate by picking up magnetic cues (like the monarch butterfly) may change their patterns, but it won't be a catastrophic event like the Chicxulub Strike in the Yucatan which ended the Cretaceous Era.

A physical shift of the axis-of-rotation pole (in other words, the point which points to the Pole Star) simply will not happen. Given that the Earth weighs sextillions of tons and that its rotation imparts a tremendous conservation-of-angular momentum stability, any physical force capable of changing the axis of rotation would probably destroy the Earth itself. In any event, it's only happened once in the entire solar system (to Neptune) and even that may because of some angular-momentum jiggery-pokery some 4 billion years ago when the solar system was still not much more than an accretion disk.


Your input in this matter may explain why where is was cold is now getting warmer and where it was warm is now getting cooler...


I think the climate changes, while very serious, can be explained by something a lot simpler. An overall warming of the Earth (probably caused or at least exacerbated by human activity) causes a melting of the polar icepacks and resultant decrease in the ocean salinity. Because of this, the "conveyor effect" of the Gulf Stream (and probably the Japan Current, although it's kind of early to tell) is lessened, which means that places which are warmed by these currents (like England) could become much colder.

But earthquakes and volcanic activity are almost always caused by movements in the tectonic plates; specifically, the boundaries between them. I am not aware of any correlation between climate and earthquakes, although certainly large volcanoes can and do cause climate changers, usually by the expelled ash in the stratosphere causing a cooling effect. If such stuff interests you, may I suggest Catastrophe: An Investigation into the Origins of Modern Civilization by David Keys ( www.amazon.com...=1134490348/sr=2-1/ref=pd_bbs_b_2_1/103-2160911-6187816?s=books&v=glance&n=283155 )?
