Hi Robert and Et Al,
I am so glad you mention this subject of the magnetic pole swaps. NOVA
produced a program on this very thing, "Magnetic Storm", which is
available at their site:
http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/magnetic/about.html, and through Netflix. I
would recommend to all to check with their local video rental stores to
see if they carry this program-if not, ask them to get it in the store.
Most rental stores are good about this.
This is not a theory. Magnetic pole swapping is well understood
geologically (reversed polarity in rocks and masses) and now with the
availability of orbiting satellites, actual mapping and monitoring has
been performed and documented. As we speak, the magnetic poles are
presenting shifts in their patterns that are more likely to create the
El Nino/Nina ocean current patterns, reciprocal weather patterns (and
melting icebergs), vulcanism, continental plate shifts and so forth.
During times when the gravitional shield is weakest or develops weak
points, the Earth gets a blast of radiation from the sun as this
gravitational shield along with the layers of atmosphere are filters for
most of the sun's radiant energy. In the past, these blasts of radiation
could be repsonsible for extinctions, mutations, and migrations.The
planet is very dynamic and from geological and archeological hard
evidences, many epochs have come and gone. Many species have come and
gone as well.
I strongly suggest anyone who is interested rent or buy this NOVA
program-We need to understand EVERYTHING before we can what we seek.
My mother worked 25 years with a contracting company to NASA and JPL and
this science was recognized then-30 years ago.
This type of event is not unusual for the Earth, but would be profound
for the exsiting ecosystems.
