I'd like to see anyone try to predict how and where the magnetic pole will move next.

I think also that lil part about, "Changes in the earths core" carrys at least a lil wieght.
I don't see why..The Earth's axis wouldn't change and neither would our rotation speed.
So why would the core be effected.??
Supercomputer models of Earth's magnetic field. On the left is a normal dipolar magnetic field, typical of the long years between polarity reversals. On the right is the sort of complicated magnetic field Earth has during the upheaval of a reversal.

Right, nothing funnier than being unable to cope with change.

I have been an aviator for 25 years or so. Runway alignments are routinely checked and changed. Magnetism of compass readings are not only affected by the magnetism of the planet, but also by large iron ore deposits in the earth. Also adjusted routinely are aviation charts which show the deviation of the magnetism from true north on the maps. This deviation is adjusted for locational anomalies such as the ore deposits I mentioned earlier. There are also cautions on the maps that local magnetic distortions can exceed the mapped deviation. This all gives the pilot greater situation awareness and is one of the reasons this country has an excellent safety record. Besides a compass in most aircraft range a multitude of navigation instruments. To name a few, these range from inertial navigation, GPS, LORAN (outdated), VOR/TACAN, and believe it or not, sextants with star charts and almanacs to obtain location on certain military aircraft such as the C130's (these sextants are now gone, but the observation deck/window is still there. The long and the short of it, the prudent pilot likes the "belt and suspenders" approach to navigation. The FAA and federal government does an excellent job to provide the pilot with the most up to date information. As a result, this highly increases the chain of safety. On a side note, when I see a multitude of fellow fliers, although the feathered variety, fall out of the sky in multiple locations in days time, I like you take note...

Years ago I read a book called The Hab Theory, based on a real theory of pole shift and the tumultuous consequences. It also explained the ancient mysteries about previous civilizations with incredible technology that our governments today seem to ignore, The poles shifted due to overloading of the poles with ice off axis and eventually causing the poles to shift to different locations on the planet and explaining such things as mastodons with flowers in their mouths frozen solid extremely rapidly. So..... maybe global warming is actually a conspiracy to warm the planet and prevent ice from building up to avoid pole shift cataclysm and changes for the powers that be, but has gotten out of hand and may end up in altering our planet a different way that will also harm civilization? It's a great book if you can find it. And there are websites about the book and the actual theory behind it, most of which is well known to many of us here.

Okay. Thanks for the information. Now may I ask you something? To the best of your recollection, has this ever routinely been shared with the public like this though?
I know my local beaches constantly get dredged and realigned due to the changing coastline but NEVER (that I'm aware of) has that ever made the news! So I can't imagine if they started doing it now.
So it's not necessarily the activity (if this IS something common) it's more about the timing I suppose.
Something is going on. There was no way the average person .....er, wait, let me take that back.....there was no way people like US were going to just read that, think nothing of it...and causally go back to reading threads.
They knew it would start a commotion ESPECIALLY in light of the unprecedented number of animals dropping dead around the globe!
