So, how can a molten, bubbling, boiling, flowing, mass of liquid iron create any type of magnet field when the electrons are scattered all over the place?

It's you constant doom and Gloom people who SUCK, why don't you take your mental garbage somewhere else, or better yet, refrain from your absurdaties all together...

Measure for yourself each night. Polaris or The North Star can be easily found and oriented to a landmark for measurement. If Polaris moves drastically from one night to the next, then think about sticking your head in the ground, but until then, take the chill pill.

for me being rude....that was not my intention. Nor is it now.
The op asked if a magnetic pole shift could be behind mass extinctions....but....at the end of the op's own video the 'experts' state quite clearly that the end of the human race or any other mass extinction will not occur because the Earth loses it's magnetic shield.
Had this story appeared in the newspapers it would have been described as a non-story. Yes the poles will shift....no they don't know when. The answer to the 'so what question' is being sought here......but there is no 'so what'...no dire consequences....no potential doom.....no mass extinctions. The worst that will happen is that our compasses will no longer work.

I read somewhere that the north pole has increased movement
from 10km per yr. to 10km per month (since 1970)
* I tried to insert a ^ graph, but ats has censored it *
As for any connection to previous extinctions, I think that volcanic
activity and weather changes, earthquakes and floods
could have very well been a result of magnetic-field disruptions.
Fig. 41 contains a graph showing the movement of the North geomagnetic pole. As can be seen from the graph, [color=Chartreuse]the North geomagnetic pole’s drift rate had increased almost fivefold by the late 1990s as compared to 1980.
This fact might point to a substantial change in energy processes within Earth’s core, which form the geomagnetic field of our planet. No doubt the observed phenomenon may be indicative of the beginning of another cycle of surge in Earth’s endogenous activity.
To what further consequences may the vastly accelerated displacement of the North Magnetic Pole lead? Given that a decrease in Earth’s magnetic field intensity accompanies this process, it can be assumed that global climate change will be influenced as well.
There are so-called “cusps” in the polar ice cap areas – polar gaps that have increased in size in recent years. Radiation particles from the solar wind and interplanetary space enter Earth’s atmosphere and hit its surface through those cusps, which means that huge amounts of extra matter and energy get into the polar areas resulting in “heating” of polar caps.
Naturally, changing of the positions of the geomagnetic poles also causes shifting of the cusps and, consequently, displacement of the areas of high flux of solar energy into Earth’s atmosphere and towards its surface. [color=Cyan]This process is followed by a redistribution of cyclones and anticyclones across the planet, leading to serious global climate change (V. E. Khain, E. N. Khalilov, 2008, 2009).

I'm pretty sure I read somewhere once that severe solar storms can cause the poles to flip as well, and when the planets align perfectly it can cause spats of solar storms, it has happened in the past and the evolving eco system survived so theres no need to panic too much, yes some plant life will die, causing some animal life to dissipate, and certain eco systems will change drastically but we will go on, I'm pretty sure of it!

From what I see "Dr. Dean" is talking nonsense about lava solidifying beneath Earth's crust and thus reducing Earth's magnetic field. Never mind the fact that when lava is beneath ground it is referred to as magma, he claims that the iron in solidified magma diverts the magnetic field and traps it beneath the surface.
Funny. Quick! Go buy one of his magnetic pads!edit on 3/23/2012 by Phage because: (no reason given)

If there are elements who could gain by a reduced populace, they would not tell us of a coming disaster!edit on 23-3-2012 by ajay59 because: to add
