Earth’s magnetic pole is shifting much faster than predicted. Could this be the reason for unusual earthquake clusters and unexplained booms? Linda Moulton Howe reports. 1st of a 2 part series.

Earthquakes are being recorded in eastern Connecticut for the first time in 300 years, in an area far from any fracking activity. Unexplained booms are taking place in many areas of the US. The magnetic field is in an unexpected state of flux. So, what’s happening and what should we expect?

This is the first of a two week series with Linda Moulton Howe. PLUS, for subscribers, Whitley Strieber updates us on climate change in his 2015 ‘State of the Climate’ report.

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 overdue. What happens is that the earth’s magnetic field goes into a chaotic state, which persists for between 1,000 and 10,000 years. During the first stages, the strength of the magnetic field declines, and it is this period that will pose the greatest danger to earthly life-forms, because the planet’s surface will be directly exposed to solar radiation which is normally shielded by the more
