SEEMS LIKE THERE`S ALOT OF PHAGE HATERS ON HERE. FOR MAKING VERY GOOD EXPLANATIONS FOR SOME VERY RIDICULOUS CLAIMS

On top of that when the poles flip the earth also changes direction as well so we spin the other way, that is a fact it has bin show in rocks, and other stuff.

If you want to survive your best odds are somewhere near the equator, personally I love storms and would rather just leave it to luck. Russian roulette so to speak.
North Magnetic Pole Moving East Due to Core Flux
Richard A. Lovett in San Francisco
for National Geographic News
December 24, 2009
Earth's north magnetic pole is racing toward Russia at almost 40 miles (64 kilometers) a year due to magnetic changes in the planet's core, new research says.
The core is too deep for scientists to directly detect its magnetic field. But researchers can infer the field's movements by tracking how Earth's magnetic field has been changing at the surface and in space.

SO YOUR SAYING I`M IGNORANT,JUST BECAUSE I FIND SCIENCE VERY DIFFICULT TO UNDERSTAND AND GET CONFUSED WHEN SCIENTIST`S START TALKING IN THEIR LANGUAGE JUST LIKE POLITICIANS DO,I`M REALLY SORRY I DIDN`T HAVE THE EDUCATION YOU HAD.I THOUGHT ATS WAS FOR EVERYONE`S OPPINION NO MATTER HOW SMALL.I USED TO JUST OBSERVE ATS BUT SINCE THE STANDARDS HAVE DROPPED SEVERELY ,I DONT FEEL THAT I`M NOT WORTHY OF THIS SITE ANYMORE

ATS member leaves flippant, dismissive comment without bothering to do even minimal reading...nothing new about it.
Foreword to the First Edition
by Albert Einstein
I frequently receive communications from people who wish to consult me concerning their unpublished ideas. It goes without saying that these ideas are very seldom possessed of scientific validity. The very first communication, however, that I received from Mr. Hapgood electrified me. His idea is original, of great simplicity, and—if it continues to prove itself—of great importance to everything that is related to the history of the earth’s surface.
A great many empirical data indicate that at each point on the earth’s surface that has been carefully studied, many climatic changes have taken place, apparently quite suddenly. This, according to Hapgood, is explicable if the virtually rigid outer crust of the earth undergoes, from time to time, extensive displacement over the viscous, plastic, possibly fluid inner layers. Such displacements may take place as the consequence of comparatively slight forces exerted on the crust, derived from the earth’s momentum of rotation, which in turn will tend to alter the axis of rotation, which in turn will tend to alter the axis of rotation of the earth’s crust.
In a polar region there is continual deposition of ice, which is not symmetrically distributed about the pole. The earth’s rotation acts on these unsymmetrically deposited masses, and produces centrifugal momentum that is transmitted to the rigid crust of the earth. The constantly increasing centrifugal produced in this way will, when it has reached a certain point, produce a movement of the earth’s crust over the rest of the earth’s body, and this will displace the polar regions toward the equator.
Without a doubt the earth’s crust is strong enough not to give way proportionately as the ice is deposited. The only doubtful assumption is that the earth’s crust can be moved easily enough over the inner layers.
The author has not confined himself to a simple presentation of this idea. He has also set forth, cautiously and comprehensively, the extraordinarily rich material that supports his displacement theory. I think that this rather astonishing, even fascinating, idea deserves the serious attention of anyone who concerns himself with the theory of the earth’s development.
To close with an observation that has occurred to me while writing these lines: If the earth’s crust is really so easily displaced over its substratum as this theory requires, then the rigid masses near the earth’s surface must be distributed in such a way that they give rise to displace the crust by centrifugal effect. I think that this deduction might be capable of verification, at least approximately. This centrifugal momentum should in any case be smaller than that produced by the masses of deposited ice.
David Dempsey from the State University of San Francisco was at the time of writing this paper the person responsible for collating the data used in producing the graphics for our Jet streams. Unfortunately he is unable to produce records earlier than Dec 2005, for the lack of computer storage space available to him! I am sure that if or when they have more space available the records will show definite examples of earth’s northern hexagon.
All the evidence I have studied indicates that magnetism directly creates earth’s jet streams along with its northern and southern ocean currents, but as far as I am able to determine this factor is not included in any of our climate models. Magnetic data appears to be collected from a very thin two-dimensional layer near earth’s surface. This data represents such a very tiny and insignificant layer of earth’s enormous magnetic field that it must be virtually useless to scientific research.
I suggest earth’s core has a distinct wobble. And that its distant historic path has been recorded within the 400,000 year ice core records recently collected by scientists, and that it’s more recent movement has been recorded within the historic path of earth’s north magnetic pole. Earth’s magnetic field has much more effect on earth’s own atmosphere and weather patterns than ever we could imagine.
I also suggest that earth’s Arctic and Antarctic ice caps are not simply melting, they are merely moving in conjunction with earth’s core and magnetic field.
And as earth’s magnetic field (indicated by recent movement of its magnetic poles) is moving in an unusual direction and velocity at this very moment, it is not surprising we are undergoing this present period of Climate Change.
A further thought is that earth may never have been under the influence of an ice age in the way we are presently taught. Instead because of the movement of our ice caps I believe it may have created an illusion by producing mini or local ice ages where ever they move, but on a much shorter time scale.

if he is right, this 40, or so, miles per year is not an "acedemic" question at all! It is of Ice and cold and life and death!!
maybe the new Normal. what will happen when the true mag pole gets to Sibera?! "Labrador" climate for Europe? -20 far. as a matter of weekly course, for London?
