Hey, we're really kinda overdue for a poleshift.
They've determined that on average they happen every 200,000 years, with an extremely rare period of near 500,000 years that they can assign no
pattern to, well, its been 700,000 years since our last one.. we're at least double overdue, maybe almost quadruple.
Geologists were extremely pleased to find magma that hardened over a 10,000 year period during a poleshift, and what they found was quite alarming.
The magnetic fields slowly lost strength and then collapsed over a 1-2 hundred year period, during the next 100 years they realigned on opposite
sides, but the problem was, the field didn't regain enough strength to stabilize, and quickly recollapsed. It was something like 7,000 years of
chaotic magnetism before the earth's poles restabilized once more. They have no idea why, or if it always happens that way, but the rising planetary
temperature, the weakening magnetic field, and a few small magnetic anomalies, which are things expected en mass when the poles begin to shift, all
lead scientists to the conclusion that our shift will be within the next few hundred years.
The thing I always think of is, what happens when the sun's poles shift?
