Firstly, let's differentiate between geomagnetic reversal and polar shift. Geomagnetic reversal is the change in the magnetic field of the Earth, where the magnetic north pole shifts to the South Polar Region and the south magnetic pole shifts to the North Polar Region. Once this process is complete, our compasses would point toward Antarctica, rather than northern Canada. Polar shift is considered to be a less likely event that occurs a few times in the evolutionary timescale of the Solar System. There are a couple of examples of planets that have suffered a catastrophic polar shift, including Venus (which rotates in an opposite direction to all the other planets, therefore it was flipped upside down by some huge event, such as a planetary collision) and Uranus (which rotates on its side, having been knocked off-axis by an impact, or some gravitational effect caused by Jupiter and Saturn). Many authors (including the doomsayers themselves) often cite both geomagnetic reversal and polar shift as being one of the same thing. This isn't the case.
All I see here anymore is people who have seriously been freaked out by reading too much crap, and now they are trying to force more crazy ass thoughts onto people's heads. Yeah.. I'm done with this website.
They just had a documentary on this a few weeks ago,i believe it was on either the science,or discovery channel,and they did say that the core is in fact slowing down. They also said,they didn't know how long this would take. Some say it could be any time now to a few years. I don't think they want to cause public panic. They also said we would experience communication outages by the masses if this gets any worse. The suns radiation will seep through causing many problems. Another theory is that there is a large planetary sized object causing this to happen,but where is it?

also a possible addition to that thought is from what i've seen all the waves from the sun seem to hit the earth more or less directly, but what if one goes off and hits the earth with more of an angle and potentially gives it that little extra push to send it over being that the Earth is becoming more 'vulnerable' now that it has been in a very long time.
