Thank you for stopping by and sharing your well-written, well thought-out, well articulated and non-antagonistic post.

Please keep us (well, me at least) posted of the goings-on over your way.
You cover the west coast, I'll keep my eyes on the east coast and we'll compare notes in the middle!

I sincerely thank you and stay well my friend

I've already shared my concern about adjusting this ONE airport.

So if time is to be wasted, the onus is on you..... to scroll back and find my posts explaining my confusion. Because I'm certainly not gonna belabor this anymore. There are bigger issues to sort out.

But thanks for the bump!

Well my language is english and the meaning of "don't show me any quarter" is don't show me any mercy. The point of my post is that you are indicative of why people really need to educate themselves. So I basically called you an idiot and told you I now deserve what ever hateful or derogatory reply you want to make, and don't be easy on me I am an adult.

But regardless of all that I really would like to hear your explanation for the gravity coming from the core of a planet statement. That was comedy gold, I literally was laughing to myself. It was so good I might even add it to my signature to go along with another statement you made once that I got a kick out of.

Some more bird deaths have been happening around here in North Carolina, yet the local news isn't picking it up. I am having to find out information from people around the area, which are passing it on through the stores and local business's. I am actually shocked that the airport changing the lines even hit the news in Florida. Figuring here in North Carolina, they haven't even said a single thing yet about the bomb threat at a local school even after over 100 emails from parents.

One thing that we do know is that the weather lately is really funky every wheres, we also know that birds and fish are dying and for no real reason. We also can add to that Coyotes. I have noticed a difference as of lately, and its a biggie, normally every night all night long we can hear the coyotes howling and yipping, yet this past 3 days not a single yip. Where did they go? Or why have they stopped?

Does that mean that if my satellite dish point at an azimuth of 200 degrees that that would now change if a shift took place even though my signal was not affected?

It probably wouldn't change since if it was installed and pointed using latitude and longitude, directions are based upon true north and are not affected by magnetic declination. Actually it was probably pointed by aiming at the point of highest signal strength from the satellite. So don't move it.

So let me get this straight:

Known Facts:

Magnetic poles move.
Magnetic poles move (total) up to 85km/day in circular/elipitical/hell...random patterns.
Pole is moving (linear) at approx 45-55km/day for the last (2?) decades versus the recorded 15 - 25km/day.


Unkowns:

Has the pole's overall movement exceed the average 85km / day?

Call me when there is cause for concern.

I am not going to get into this because 1) I don't know enough to go toe-to-toe with anyone and 2) It's too controversial and non-conventional and I'm already dodging the insult bullets (based on this thread) as is.

I will say this: anti-gravity propulsion (magnetic manipulation) has been used on Earth since the inception of time and continues to date.

Enough said

And I would REALLY appreciate the dismissal of disparaging comments.
I'm not flinging them at you so I ask you to be please be respectful and if you can't be then please be considerate.

If you disagree that's fine. Seek your own truth. But to start calling people idiots is counterproductive, childish and inconsequential to the quest.

And like I said earlier, some of you don't want the truth. You just want believability.

This thread would be a lot shorter if people didnt need to continue to point out that compasses point to magnetic north and that is different from true north. Do you really need to stroke your own ego to continue to point that out?

Just based off of quick fuzzy math I am a bit confused how people think it will take thousands of years for magnetic pole switch to happen (once the switch begins).
If the current rate of movement is 25mi/yr it would take roughly 500 years for the poles to switch, given that the earth is ~12500 mi from the north pole to south pole. Assuming that it is indeed accelerating and moving southward it seems that the time frame for the switch would be much less than 500 years given the assumptions.

Ok the magnetic poles have been sitting this way for 700000 years, the concern is that they're now starting to switch and the process is accelerating. If I missed a link that explains any of this I'd appreciate it if someone would quote it.

because the Earth prefers cold over warm...

Forget the Pole Shift and go buy blankets and firewood, because according to the Lake Vostok ice core samples an Ice is is imminent




Ice core samples don't lie... notice the long periods of cold compared to the short periods of warmth... and look where we are today on that graph

Snow shoes anyone?

I will brooch on this though (but don't want to get too off-topic)

You believe our gravity comes from the Moon, correct?
Why don't we fall off with every lunar eclipse? Simple question should garner a simple answer. Go!

Furthermore, not every planet has a moon (regardless that ours is probably artificial).
So in (your) theory Life does not.... can not nor will ever exist on say..........Venus.

You sir can't be more incorrect.

If the motto to this forum is deny ignorance and people are calling you out for making ignorant statements then you need to be more self critical. I'm new here and find your posts interesting, they'd be even more interesting if you had a stronger factual basis so people could asses your ideas better instead of pointing out the flaws in your thought process.

Magnetic flux expulsion from the core as a possible cause of the unusually large acceleration of the north magnetic pole during the 1990s


The north magnetic pole (NMP) has been drifting in a north-northwesterly direction since the 19th century. Both local surveys and geomagnetic models derived from observatory and satellite data show that the NMP suddenly accelerated during the 1990s. Its speed increased from about 15 km/yr in 1989 to about 60 km/yr in 2002, after which it started to decrease slightly. Using a Green's function, we show that this acceleration is mainly caused by a large, negative secular variation change in the radial magnetic field at the core surface, under the New Siberian Islands. This change occurs in a region of the core surface where there is a pair of secular variation patches of opposite polarities, which we suggest could be the signature of a so-called “polar magnetic upwelling” of the type observed in some recent numerical dynamo simulations. Indeed, a local analysis of the radial secular variation and magnetic field gradient suggests that the secular variation change under the New Siberian Islands is likely to be accompanied by a significant amount of magnetic diffusion, in agreement with such a mechanism. We thus hypothesize that the negative secular variation change under the New Siberian Islands that produced the NMP acceleration could result from a slowdown of the polar magnetic upwelling during the 1990s. We finally note that the NMP drift speed is determined by such a combination of factors that it is at present not possible to forecast its future evolution.

Shift of Earth's Magnetic North Pole Impacts Tampa Airport


www.sott.net

TAMPA - Scientists say the magnetic north pole is moving toward Russia and the fallout has reached -- of all places -- Tampa International Airport.

The airport has closed its primary runway until Jan. 13 to repaint the numeric designators at each end and change taxiway signage to account for the shift in location of the Earth's magnetic north.

I've been flying airplanes since I was 15 years old. The magnetic drift has been an ongoing thing. Airport runways are numbered by their magnetic heading and are re-numbered every few years due to the shift/drift. Every aviation map (called sectionals) shows the magnetic deviation (or declination) for every area on the map. It varies throughout the earth due to a number of factors. There are two NORTH poles. TRUE north and MAGNETIC north. There is no conspiracy here, folks. Its just a natural drift and continues. Yes, there are anomalies. My father discovered one of those during WWII when he was a crash inspector for the Army Air Corps. Large iron ore lodes in some parts of the world cause compasses to behave irratically and this causes some pilots to become disoriented and crash. There are at least two such locations in the continental USA. I work for a company that maintains a large database of aviation information and that includes runway info. As both a pilot and a manager of a database I have seen plenty of runways being renumbered. Nothing new, nothing secret, nothing conspiratorial. In fact, this year, I read that the large earthquake in South America may have added to a shift in the magentic pole that was significant (not HUGE, but statistically significant). That's life. We are on a large ball with a liquid core moving thru space at 70,000 plus mph, that rotates at about 17,000 mph. Things will shift. Look at the drift of the continents over the millenia. That's not something that mankind or a single man or group of men could do anything about, even if they wanted to. Check this out: en.wikipedia.org... Enjoy your reading!

Well you could just stay out of them
No real need for you to start a thread in board business whining about them because people do not agree with you...

How to "Deny Ignorance" when it is ATS promoting the ignorance?
www.abovetopsecret.com...



The pole moves all the time. Literally. It is not "accelerating", as in "oh my God, it's out of control!" it's just moving faster than it did -- it's not continual acceleration.


Well you MIGHT try reading the actual scientific papers that show you are WRONG. It has been accelerating



Why? Who knows. Is this unusual, or typical? Who knows, we haven't been accurately tracking magnetic North for but a few hundred years.


Exactly why this is of concern and interest to many people... because THEY DON"T KNOW



Seriously, stop the fear mongering, take ten minutes to study the basic concepts involved and use your frickin' brain. God gave you one for a reason, use it.


'god' is no more provable than the reason for the pole shift.
As to 'basic concepts' what is the point in studying those when the 'basic concepts' do not explain what is happening? When all the scientists are making statements like..


"But the breach itself is not the biggest surprise. Researchers are even more amazed at the strange and unexpected way it forms, overturning long-held ideas of space physics."
science.nasa.gov...




"What we're seeing is a long term trend, a steady decrease in pressure that began sometime in the mid-1990s," explains Arik Posner, NASA's Ulysses Program Scientist in Washington DC.

How unusual is this event?

"It's hard to say. We've only been monitoring solar wind since the early years of the Space Age—from the early 60s to the present," says Posner. "Over that period of time, it's unique. How the event stands out over centuries or millennia, however, is anybody's guess. We don't have data going back that far."

"The solar wind isn't inflating the heliosphere as much as it used to," says McComas. "That means less shielding against cosmic rays."
science.nasa.gov...


So the acceleration started in the 90's the SAME TIME they noticed that the solar wind had decreased drastically...and the scientists are BAFFLED...

And you come in and tell us don't worry everything is normal


Well go ahead and play Ostrich if you like... inquiring minds created by evolution want to KNOW what is going on and the possible implications

"Facts" are the SAME as opinions.
Give me one "fact" and I'll tear it apart.

So I don't DO the book of 'facts' but I DO share my opinion. I've hardly been a wall-flower on here so it's not like I'm not facing my executors!

My skin is thick enough and I like my sensitivity sensors set exactly where they are! So.......in all due respect, go work on yourself and don't worry about me!

Thanks pal!

No all gravity does not come from a moon I agree. No one but you would even suggest something like that. I don't know where you get this stuff but keep it coming you are doing well!

Protip: You can literally google just about any question. You will save yourself a lot of humility and maybe learn something by making it your homepage. Take that leap into cyberspace and see the wealth of information that is out there! There is no need to make stuff up anymore!

The core is pivotal to everything. The core is what science thinks is gravity. The core is what's keeping us earthbound and animals on track. Not gravity.
That's why you can't stand on the Moon. There's no core (most likely artificial). It's not that it lacks gravity. And as soon as we ALL figure that out, the sooner we can graduate from this galactic kindergarten classroom.



Just in case someone missed it.

What is the North Atlantic anomaly? (and here I thought I heard it all)


Never heard of the North Atlantic Anomaly but the South Atlantic Anomaly is the point where the where the Earth's magnetic field is weakest. and thus were the Van Allen Belt radiation is the strongest




The South Atlantic Anomaly (SAA) refers to the area where the Earth's inner Van Allen radiation belt comes closest to the Earth's surface. This leads to an increased flux of energetic particles in this region and exposes orbiting satellites to higher than usual levels of radiation. The effect is caused by the non-concentricity of the Earth and its magnetic dipole, and the SAA is the near-Earth region where the Earth's magnetic field is weakest.

So lets agree here, maybe not on what is happening but on 3 things:
1. They don't tell us everything, or they do and they are wrong - like the earth is flat and ulcers are caused by stress. Later there are advancements and they understand and they usually don't deliever the apology letter in the mail to those that questioned the orignal story - actually they used to burn people at the stake for not aggreeing with the current model of belief. This is HISTORY.
2. Stuff is dying we might want to get a little concerned about like bee's, which can effect pollenation, which can affect food supply. Even if it is a virus, or a mutation, or from genetically engineered corn, or too many cell phone towers. OR POLE SHIFTY WOBBLY THINGS, we might want to figure out WHY. This is where it can turn to BS if studies are corrupt or are paid for by those that have a vested, vested interest in keeping it hushed up.
3. Chicken little? This site is harmless really, you can choose to go to other threads on here - I stay out of whole topic areas because I just don't want to get involved. If you want to really talk about chicken little and fear mongering lets talk about guys, like um . . . Glen Beck a guy who reaches millions of people everyday with fear mongering, or lets go to the airport and watch TSA in action. This is just one thread on a CONSPIRACY WEBSITE. Don't you get it?



BEST POST I have seen on ATS for a long time
and only two stars... You have just summed up everything on ATS very nicely.
