Pole Shift May Happen Sooner than Expected

In 2011, scientists announced that the magnetic north pole was moving much faster than expected, changing position at a rate of 40 miles per year, and now recent measurements suggests that the movement may be accelerating. Magnetic pole shifts happen on average every 300,000 years. The last one took place 780,000 years ago, so the next one is long...

Our Poles are Wandering Around

Earth's axis is shifting, causing the geographic locations of the North and South Poles to change or "wander." This has happened several times (NOTE: Subscribers can still listen to...

Pole Shift Steady--But Not for Long

Every 11 years, during the high point of the sun's activity cycle, the magnetic field on the sun reverses completely. Does this have any effect on the Earth (which has its own pole shift?)

Space scientists agree that the switch is imminent at the north pole, well in...

Pole Shift in Progress

Yes, it's happening right now: compasses are changing because the North and South poles are in the process of changing places. This is something that happens periodically, and some scientists think it may be causing some of the mysterious loud sounds that...

Pole Shift Happening NOW

The earth's magnetic field normally reverses about every 500,000 years. The last reversal was 800,000 years ago, and now the north magnetic pole is moving at the rate of 40 miles per year. Does this mean that the magnetic field is reversing now? The British...

Pole Shift Could Cause Superstorm

The magnetic pole shift that is going on now has sped up and cause havoc with our weather, including a possible superstorm. When the poles shift, they change the Earth's...

Pole Shift Underway

The magnetic North Pole is shifting and the poles may even flip--this is something geologists say happens regularly on the earth (NOTE: ...

Sudden Pole Shift

Going on NOW - It's moving fast and very soon things may be completely different. The normally slow pole shift process may be accelerating at a rapid rate (NOTE: Subscribers can still listen to this show).

Pole Shift

We know thepoles areshifting right now (as they do at regular intervals)?now weknow why.

It turns out that fluid in the center of the earth issloshing around, causing the poles to magnetically shift. InLiveScience.com, Jeremy Hsu writes, "The last major changein the field took place some 780,000 years ago during amagnetic reversal,...

Earth Flop

Although most of us aren't aware of it (except those of you who come to our web site regularly!) there is a pole shift going on right now, which is part of a regular cycle. But something even bigger may have happened in the past: earth flop. And it could happen AGAIN.

Around 800 million years ago, the earth may have spun on its side to...

Gamma Ray Not a Death Ray

The ongoing pole reversal, which is occurring right now, temporarily weakens the radiation shield around the earth, meaning that a burst of gamma rays could incinerate the planet. Thankfully, observations by the Hubble space telescope tell us that this is not a danger in the near future.

More Birds Affected by Pole Shift

We recently reported that the Earth's magnetic field is moving fast, meaning that magnetic North and South will soon switch places in a pole shift. Geologists know that this has happened before, and when it does, it confuses birds because they navigate partly through magnetic areas in their brains.

KTVU in California reports that in late...

How Birds Get Around

Now that the magnetic pole reversal is in progress, somebirds are having trouble migrating and are ending up in thewrong places. They're also leaving at the wrong time,because global warming is giving them false signals. It'sbecome important for scientists to understand how birdsnavigate.

Amanda Onion writes on abcnews.com that how...

When Homing Pigeons Don't Come Home

We recently speculated that 1,500homing pigeonsin Sweden that never returned home may have been confused bythe changing magnetic poles. But some people think they gotlost due to electronic signals from nearby cell phone towers.

The Swedish homing pigeons aren't the only onesmissing?about 1,600 pigeons vanished out of 1,800 competingin a...

More Birds Affected by Pole Shift

The gradual shift in the magnetic poles is affecting bird sall over the world. First we reported on the case of the missing pelicans inNorth Dakota. Now 1,500 homing pigeons are missing in Sweden.

Birds rely on magnetic areas in their brains to migrate andfind their way home again. Homing pigeons are especiallygood at this, but during...

Missing Pelicans Due to Pole Shift?

Officials in North Dakota are looking for 27,000 American white pelicans that are missing. They've abandoned their summer nesting grounds?leaving their eggs unhatched?at the Chase National Wildlife Refuge.

"It's like they packed up and left in the middle of the night?except they didn't pack up, they just left," says Ken Torkelson of the...
