I strongly suggest you watch the vid (below) but for those who don’t have the time or the bandwidth here’s a brief summary.

Debunkers please note - Much of the info in the vid is courtesy of.
Mario Acuna (NASA Goddard) World leading expert on magnetic fields.
This man has been responsible for the magnetic detection devices sent to Jupiter and Saturn, on voyagers 1 and 2. Mercury on Mariner 10, the sun and comet Haley and mars global surveyor etc…

A little bit of science
When rock is molten and then sets hard it records the state of the surrounding magnetic field. Even pottery does the same when it’s fired in the kiln. Because of this effect we have a reliable record of the state of the earths magnetic field going back millions of years.

Lava flows such as those found around Hawaii have been recording the state of the earths magnetic field for millions of years. Every time a new lava flow solidifies it records the state of the field.
By examining these ancient lava flows we can see that the earths magnetic field fluctuates over time but more importantly we can see that it completely reverses about every 200,000 years. The last reversal was about 780,000 years ago so we are well overdue for another.

Physicist Gary Glatzmaier fed all known data into a computer model to simulate the earths magnetic core and let it run for four years. The output from this closely matched the lava records but it also showed that whenever the field was about to reverse we should see the field weakening. Today we know the field is rapidly weakening!!! Pottery reveals that the strength of the field has weakened by 10% in the last 300 years and this decline is now speeding up.

Further study of ancient lava flows shows us some worrying data. As the field nears the state where it flips we can be left with no protective magnetic shield and the lava shows this can state can last for 3000 years!!!
It also shows that when in flip mode the field can change by six degrees PER DAY!!!

Its no longer a question of will it flip, the question is when will it flip, and what will happen when it does.
Without the field we’ll be bombarded with lethal radiation, even if it only weakens we’ll still suffer more radiation getting through and we all know what radiation does to life on earth.
At the moment solar and galactic radiation is focused towards the two magnetic poles where few people live but research suggests that when the field weakens enough we could have four, eight or even more magnetic poles that roam across the earth directing the radiation onto heavily populated areas.

Mario Acuna (NASA) thinks this may be why Mars lost its atmosphere.
When something big hits a planet it melts the rock and leaves a crater. If the planet has magnetic poles the melted rock would record the direction and strength of the magnetic field but as the craters on mars have no magnetic field recorded it suggests no field existed when the impact happened.
So, Mars used to have a protective magnetic field just like earth but now it doesn’t. Mario and his team believe this could be the cause of mars losing its atmosphere!!! Without the magnetic field the solar and galactic winds could strip away the atmosphere molecule by molecule until it’s all gone.

This leaves me wondering whether magnetic pole reversal or a lack of a magnetic shield could be responsible for the many mass extinctions that we know have taken place throughout the earths history.
Does anyone know of any work on this? Is it possible that pole reversal could lead to mass extinction?


This is a very interesting vid, what I’ve written does not do it justice, if you’ve got the time I highly recommend you watch it.

If it has taken 300 years to weaken 10%, even if it is increasing in speed wouldn't it still take at least another 100 years or so before it is reduced 100%?

Just want to make sure I'm not alive when this decides to go down

Not exactly.

While the magnetosphere does divert charged particles toward the magnetic poles it doesn't really do much to protect us from solar or cosmic radiation. Electromagnetic radiation and neutral particles are unaffected by the Earth's magnetic field. It is our atmosphere which mainly protects us, even at the poles.

No correlation has been found.

So where is the evidence to back this claim up,all i read was someone using what ifs and what not do you have evidence and i mean real concrete evidence not assumptions dam i hate it when people say something like this is happening now and no proof, pics or anything other than an old video that is an hr long

The decline is increasing so it could be tomorrow

I can definitely feel the pole shift with the child's attitude lately. Rather than being defiant, destructive and obtrusive. She has been calm, nice and everything in between. She would rather go to sleep, then make my life a nightmare. Something is definitely up. But, hey I am not complaining. Can definitely live without that drama everyday.


Maybe these pole shifts have something to do with it.

Dude, if you're not going to take the time to research these things on your own, you're just going to be swayed by other people's beliefs.

The title is misleading though.

Does that mean its only true if the vid is two minutes long?

Get yerself a beer and watch the vid and you'll see ROCK solid proof

It may be a dramatic title, but its true.

And then there is www.phy6.org...&A1.htm#q10

The field has been weakening since Carl Friedrich Gauss measured it around 1836, by about 5% per century, recently accelerating to 7%/century. The total energy of the field however is nearly constant, as shown by the late Ned Benton. This means that the field is not really weakening, only reshuffling its energy, reducing the "main dipole" (=north-south bar-magnet pattern, declining as noted by about 7% per century) and reinforcing the more complicated parts.

These tend to contribute a weaker field, because the magnetism originates in the Earth's core, about half an Earth-radius down: all magnetic fields at the surface are weaker than those in the core, because of the distance, but the more complicated fields decrease faster.

Whether the main dipole will reverse in about 1300 years is anyone's guess. Geological evidence suggests it has happened in the past, but odds are against it, because the mean frequency of such reversals in the past seems to be about once in 500,000 years.

I know nothing yet just because the magnetic field is declining does this mean it will decline 100% or is it part of a cycle which reaches a tipping point (not necessarily at - 100%) where the magnetic poles north and south reverse and fluctuate till settling back to a steadier local - when this tipping point occurs is as yet anyones guess????

You are correct in saying its not actualy weakening, its being spread which means it weaker at the poles.
The reasearch of the lava shows that its more like every 200000 years.

There is no pattern to the magnetic reversals. The last one occurred about 780,000 years ago.

I'm only repeating what the scientists in the vid are saying and they say that the lava records show an average reversal time of 200,000 years. They do state the last time was as you say 280,000 years ago If the lave records are correct then we really are overdue.

What do you think of Mario's suggestion that this could be the reason why mars lost its atmosphere?

An average reversal time is not the same thing as "every 200,000 years". It does not mean we are "overdue". There have been much longer time spans than 780,000 years between reversals.

It is very likely that Mars lost its atmosphere (most of it) because of its lack of a global magnetic field. But it took millions (or billions) of years for it to happen.

But you didn't acknowledge the information the OP provided Phage...

What's your take on a magnetic reversal happening now as the OP suggests?

Do you see any evidence of that, or have anything to help explain what might be occurring?

What, if any, relationship could there be to global climate change, whether it be warming or cooling?

I'm honestly interested in your interpretation, no sarcasm....

We could be in a reversal or not. Since most indications show that reversals take thousands of years to occur, it's pretty hard to tell.

As I understand it air and gas friction and diffusion also protect us. The air is not going to just float away unless what we describe as the gravity effect stops functioning at its current rate.

In a mag field collapse before switch we may see an increase in cosmic radio interference and perhaps induction based system failure I still think the current layers would protect us or at least continue to conduct uv to surface dwellers at a similar current rate.

In my experiments with a plasma ball and florescent bulb I have found the human biofield em field does have a blocking/redirecting effect taking the emf from hitting the bulb. Applying a similar model effect to a planet with a collapsed missing field I would expect to see a lot more charged particles and the effects they would have via induction and interference would certainly be noticeable.

Interference WOULD be noticeable.

So... what if anything are we noticing?
