Here are some highlights from the Article:
"It is not only the direction but also the strength of this magnetic field that is a concern. In the time of dinosaurs, at an estimated 2.5 gauss, it
was eighty percent stronger than it is now. This may have been one of the reasons such gigantic life forms thrived. It is now accepted that a
catastrophic event ended the reign of giant reptiles."
"Does the magnetic field drop to zero gauss? Dire predictions follow upon the heels of this theory. Electronic devices would all be at risk: there may
be damage to, or complete loss of, all near-earth-orbiting satellites and possibly the space station itself. Effects on life forms could range from
migrating birds losing their sense of direction to immune system decline and even widespread die-off from radiation-induced cancers."
So we have seen:
Massive Weather Change
Unexplained cases of cancer
This last one is especially scary. The water supply is fine, and the air quality is better in that small town than many other towns even nearby(let
alone places like LA where smog is rampant). The reasons for the increase in cancer are unkown and causing confusion. Could this be the magnetosphere
breaking up over that part of the town?
We also just recently had the thread about the airport changing its runway to reflect new pole changes:
The common consensus is that pole changes are a slow and gradual process. However, when looking at it from my layman point of view, i see it being
Take two magnets: The closer they come to each other, the quicker they repel or attract. As the magnetosphere begins to change due to the sun, the
poles on Earth will not only shift but they will shift rapidly. There could even be an entire flip overnight. If our magnets here on Earth will act
this way, why would a magnet covering our Earth behave differently?
You may ask, well when you scale it the Earth is monstrously larger than any magnet we have. Of course, but so is the magnetic strength of the Earth.
Hence, why we dont float up into space
Just my 2 cents.
