Earth's background base frequency, or "heartbeat," (called Schumann resonance, or SR) is rising dramatically. Though it varies among geographical regions, for decades the overall measurement was 7.8 cycles per second. This was once thought to be a constant; global military communications developed on this frequency. Recent reports set the rate at over 11 cycles, and climbing. Science doesn't know why, or what to make of it.
Geophysical Condition: Earth's Diminishing Magnetic Field
While earth's "pulse" rate is rising, her magnetic field strength, on the other hand, is declining. According to Professor Bannerjee of the University of New Mexico, the field has lost up to half its intensity in the last 4,000 years. And because a forerunner of magnetic polar reversals is this field strength, Prof. Bannerjee believes that another reversal is due. Gregg Braden, who I have had on the show several times believes that because these cyclical Shifts are associated with reversals, Earth's geological record indicating magnetic reversals also marks previous Shifts in history. And, within the enormous time scale represented, there
were quite a few of them.
What is a Schumann Resonance?
Believe it or not, the Earth behaves like an enormous electric circuit. The atmosphere is actually a weak conductor and if there were no sources of charge, its existing electric charge would diffuse away in about 10 minutes. There is a 'cavity 'defined by the surface of the Earth and the inner edge of the ionosphere 55 kilometres up. At any moment, the total charge residing in this cavity is 500,000 Coulombs. There is a vertical current flow between the ground and the ionosphere of 1 - 3 x 10^-12 Amperes per square meter. The resistance of the atmosphere is 200 Ohms. The voltage potential is 200,000 Volts. There are about 1000 lightning storms at any given moment worldwide. Each produces 0.5 to 1 Ampere and these collectively account for the measured current flow in the Earth's 'electromagnetic' cavity.

This is very interesting! I'm far from an expert on these matters but I'm a bit puzzled as to where all this pressure is coming from.
The sun has gone dead silent again so it woul appear to be something else.
My guess would be that we're moving into the center of the galactic plane and that the energy levels there are much higher, but this is pure speculation.
Any other guesses?

I guess climate change had to come -with humans on Earth or not. We just gave it some extra spin , thats all
ps: still good to get rid of your SUV, think about the cash you spend on petrol and the war necessary to secure the petrol resources.. get a small car at least for the short daily journeys ! and keep the SUV for the longer journeys !

well, NASA expected extreme solar activity for this solar cycle, fueling my 2012 theories . But now , it looks like the predictions were wrong , and we will have an unusually weak solar maximum activity. Conclusion : we still do not fully understand the underlying causes of Solar Activity.
Concerning the idea that our Earth will pass trough the galactic center, well it is not the case as it seems like we already passed it several thousands years ago..
the theory is that planets orbit in solar equatorial plane with opposite magnetic polarities so that like poles repel causing the planets to stay flipped by repulsion
