Well, you sound like you're applying reason and logic. For example:
It sounds like to me she is talking about one being a Magnetic Pole shift, and one being a physical pole shift.
I would think that not even SHE would be silly enough to claim an actual axis shift, of the planet's rotation...because such an occurrence would be
noticed BY EVERYONE, and would dominate every news story!
... then i might assume that its a Magnetic Pole shift that's presently occurring.
There is a (minor) and gradual shift, has been occurring since measurements started over a century ago.
BUT, if it were a huge, rapid and dramatic shift, rest assured it ALSO would be very big news...because every pilot, ship's crew at sea, and many
others would immediately notice! Especially aviation and maritime, for sure, would see right away, since Magnetic North is critical to navigation.
(Look up the difference, depending on your longitude, and the angle of change between True and Mag North. It's called either "deviation", or
"declination", depending on preference).
I am not sure of the science of how Magnetic Pole shifts affect the Weather....
I doubt weather is affected much by our magnetic field. Magnetism is, actually, an incredibly weak force, in many ways. Unless in close
proximity...the force diminishes by the inverse-square rule. Varies, too, between monopole and dipole magnets (though, "monopole" really refers to
sub-atomic particles and such...)
... but i know a Planetary Pole shift would.
Darn tootin'!! Coriolis Effect drives weather to a great degree, among other factors. But of course, such a major change would also be instantly
seen, by every astronomer on the planet....
