I promise you I was not even thinking that I was teaching a lesson. What I was doing was just giving you a little advice here. I guess you can think whatever your heart desires, Just remember Google is your friend, and you may want to use it sometime.
"mike184ever" reply to post by jpsdasnake simulator was crazy the other day then the 2 7. quakes in S. Am. its crazy today also....I can confirm the shift...I sit here in the office and look west the sun is setting way to the right today. This is weird cause I am a skeptic.
The Earth's magnetic poles move. The magnetic North Pole moves in loops of up to 50 miles (80 km) per day. But its actual location, an average of all these loops, is also moving at around 25 miles a year [ref]. In the last 150 years, the pole has wandered a total of about 685 miles (1102 kilometers). The magnetic South Pole moves in a similar fashion.

I would not get so jumpy with fear at this point. Something is certainly happening but you need to get a grip and stop thinking that it's the end of the world.

Ah! Here, love the Internet sometimes!!
You have to remember that most of thee airports were laid out and built decades ago....before the sort of precision surveying, to include GPS accuracy, that we have today.
edit on 6 January 2011 by weedwhacker because: (no reason given)
Through analysis of palaeomagnetic data, it is now known that the Earth's magnetic field has reversed its orientation tens of thousands of times during the history of the Earth since its formation. With the increasingly accurate Global Polarity Timescale (GPTS) it has become apparent that the rate at which reversals occur has varied considerably throughout the past.
Some speculate that a greatly diminished magnetic field during a reversal period will expose the surface of the Earth to a substantial and potentially damaging increase in cosmic radiation. However, Homo erectus and their ancestors certainly survived many previous reversals.
There is no uncontested evidence that a magnetic field reversal has ever caused any biological extinctions. A possible explanation is that the solar wind may induce a sufficient magnetic field in the Earth's ionosphere to shield the surface from energetic particles even in the absence of the Earth's normal magnetic field.
