Scientists from the University of Colorado in Boulder are sounding the alarm that the Earth’s magnetic poles are showing signs of reversing.  Although the pole reversal, in and of itself, isn’t unprecedented, the solar winds that would take out the power grid and make parts of the globe uninhabitable could cause widespread disasters.

The Earth has a fierce molten core that generates a magnetic field capable of defending our planet against devastating solar winds.  This magnetic field is vital to life on Earth and has weakened by 15 percent over the last 200 years. This protective field acts as a shield against harmful solar radiation and extends thousands of miles into space and its magnetism affects everything from global communication to power grids.

Historically, Earth’s North and South magnetic poles have flipped every 200,000 or 300,000 years. However, the last flip was about 780,000 years ago, meaning our planet is well overdue.  The latest satellite data, from the European Space Agency’s Swarm trio which monitors the Earth’s magnetic field, suggest a pole flip may be imminent.  The satellites allow researchers to study changes building at the Earth’s core, where the magnetic field is generated. Their observations suggest molten iron and nickel are draining the energy out of the Earth’s core near where the magnetic field is generated. While scientists aren’t sure why exactly this happens, they describe it as a “restless activity” that suggests the magnetic field is preparing to flip.

The signs of the Earth’s poles reversing are also apparent to Daniel Baker, who says this would devastate the power grid.  If a switch happens, we would likely be exposed to solar winds capable of punching holes into the ozone layer. In a new report, Baker, who is the director of the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics at the University of Colorado in Boulder, claims if this reversal happens, it is likely to render some areas of the planet “uninhabitable” by knocking out power grids.

Baker’s comments were made in an in-depth Undark report written by Alanna Mitchell, who has a new book about the topic titled “The Spinning Magnet: The Electromagnetic Force that Created the Modern World and Could Destroy It.”

“The dangers: devastating streams of particles from the sun, galactic cosmic rays, and enhanced ultraviolet B rays from a radiation-damaged ozone layer, to name just a few of the invisible forces that could harm or kill living creatures,” Michelle writes.

 “This is serious business,” Richard Holme, Professor of Earth, Ocean, and Ecological Sciences at Liverpool University told MailOnline. “Imagine for a moment your electrical power supply was knocked out for a few months – very little works without electricity these days.”

Researchers predict that in the event of a flip, every year a hundred thousand people would die from the increased levels of space radiation. Radiation at ground level would increase so much that some estimates suggest overall exposure to cosmic radiation would double causing more deaths from cancer. “Radiation could be 3-5 times greater than that from the man-made ozone holes. Furthermore, the ozone holes would be larger and longer-lived,” said D. Colin Forsyth from the Mullard Space Science Laboratory at UCL.

6 Totally Insane Things That Will Happen If Our Power Grid Goes Down

Preparing yourself for a power grid failure is only part of the preparations needed.  Radiation will also cause fatalities, but there are ways to protect yourself.

    So where the mountaintop bunker with the spaceship ready to blast off? We need to storm it and reach the passing Plent X –

    Oh, that was a movie. lol

    • durangokidd says:

      Worth revisiting, but I think there is still a lot of time before the SHTF. Years anyway. Keep prepping. 🙂

      • Most prepper types are weak and puny fat guys that over react to nonsense and pay little attention to stuff that actually matters like their health, fitness, well being and any serious training. Sorry for the reality check boys and girls but that is the straight up truth of the matter !

        And I am all about actually being prepared for any and all events that can be imagined and well down that road in spades. Enjoying it all daily with my fitness, health, constant training and well being.

        All of the supposed prepper sites are fading because they are not based in reality and pander to greater fools. Just the same as ZH has seriously faded and is no longer relevant as it once was. Most of you here do not even realize Tyler Durden is NOT a real person or what fight club even was. It does NOT exist today just as Mac Slavo does not exist or ever has. Ponder that for just a few minutes and get your own shit together for once in your life ! It is all marketing and all just another of the many illusions you buy into. But that does not mean all manner of serious events are not out there. They are in spades. But staying fat, dumb and lazy will never serve you well for any of them, much less your life today !

    • Wilson says:

      And I should listen to something from UC Boulder because???????????
      I must have missed the suggested preps to have for pole flipping, maybe the same as for pole dancing?

      • CrackerJack says:

        Pole reversal takes hundreds of years. It won’t happen in our lifetime, or our children’s.

        /fearporn

        • Robert says:

          That’s the danger. While the flip is going on there will be times when the magnetic poles will be facing the sun and allow the cosmic radiation to come in. Twice a day bursts of cosmic radiation. Kind of like a micro-wave oven set to run for one minute every hour. Eventually your cooked.

        • Peg Greterson says:

          ‘Cause you’ve seen it before, right?

        • But we have no idea when this cycle started, because this article is all based on hyperbole. Supposed science is just now even considering such events. So yeh, it could happen soon or Yellowstone could blow. We simply do not know although it is verifiable Yellowstone so bulging and the ring of fire is acting up all over the globe as well. So nobody actually knows for certain any of it, as we have only been able to watch such events in very recent times compared to the history or humans and the earth.

          Either way I choose to be fit and string and enjoy it all everyday , today, for many reasons ! If it all blows tomorrow I will either survive because of my attributes or I won’t, simple as that. But I will know I enjoyed everyday and fought the good fight and did not live in fear like a whipped dog !

          What else is a higher reality, especially since I help others do the same and heal themselves 🙂 ?

      • Wilson, Maybe the same for pole sucking ?

        I get stronger and more effective and enjoying it all more each year, as I am in fact reversing my aging process and stronger today than I was in RVN in 68-69. So I am likely doing something quite right and have far more answers than most ?

        Not bragging, just a simple provable, verifiable fact ! There are some secrets, kinda ? And I was lucky enough to find them.

    • yourdaddy says:

      Simply absurd…There is NO South Pole. The Earth is a flat plane, the sun/moon are only 3000 miles above us and within the firmament. The molten core? Please. Any proof ever presented? Anyone seen or tested the “molten core” of Earth? Of course not…Its not there, yet billions of indoctrinated folks continue to espouse that which they’ve heard since birth as if its gospel.

      Rather than replying with senseless vitriol and emotion, set out to investigate this issue for yourself. Once you decide to do that, the battle is won. The scales will fall, and you will see the Truth clearly.
      Don’t forget to call your Mother.

  2. Heartless says:

    Life has survived this before. It will again. Granted a lot will be lost; but, what the heck~~~!!! who wants to live forever? Polar flipping, huh? Wouldn’t it be wild if the poles only flipped halfway and they ended up on the equator opposite one another?

    • Ketchupondemand says:

      ““This is serious business,” Richard Holme, Professor of Earth, Ocean, and Ecological Sciences at Liverpool University told MailOnline. “Imagine for a moment your electrical power supply was knocked out for a few months – very little works without electricity these days.”

      Well, we have been without power for 4 months and 11 days now and we have no idea when it comes back.
      But we have not missed a thing because we were ready.
      I will post Part 3 this weekend on our story.

      If you want to read Part 1 it was posted on Jan. 20 under the article “Proof: The LVMPD..”
      Part 2 was posted on Jan. 27 under “Report: Hillary Clinton protected..”
      For what it’s worth…it isn’t death and destruction, but there may be something of value worth reading..

      • Fireman matt says:

        Read part 1 and loved it.. I would like to see it as a posted article. You should submit it to Mac.

        Glanced over part 2 but want to read it more in depth when I have time..

        If you could add your location, general level of prep before the the storm, and the lessons learned .. I.E what other preps do you wish you would have bought more of, etc. I would appreciate.

        And what preps do you recommend stocking up on to sell or trade after the fact? Bar oil, fuel, food, duct tape, plastic rolls.. ect..

        Looking forward to reading more..

      • Kevin2 says:

        Ketchupondemand

        But the rest of civilization had power. The collateral impact of wide spread loss of electrical power would be catastrophic. Get an appendicitis, in normal times a relatively minor medial issue if diagnosed and treated promptly; lethal here. Years of no power? Electricity put the modern in the modern world.

      • Nailbanger says:

        ???
        Keep on keepin on bud

    • Heartless, indeed there has been previous pole shifts and it has happened about 9 times prior. It is NOT about all life being eliminated, it is about the normal cycles and moving events of the universe and cosmos constantly in motion on a grand scale and time line.

      It is clear also that humans are very destructive and need to be thinned out occasionally. It has happened several times prior and will again for sure by natural forces. But rest assured there will likely be survivors as there always has been and I will surely be one, if it happens in my lifetime and I have many years to go hard if it plays out still. So be happy and enjoy it all now and do not live in fear at all of anything !

  3. Paranoid says:

    Sorry to invade the conversation but The South Carolina Senate Judiciary Committee was supposed to have a hearing on Concealed carry yesterday and I cannot find anything on the net, does anyone know what went on?

  4. rellik says:

    “every year a hundred thousand people would die from the increased levels of space radiation.”
    That is a really insignificant portion of the earth’s population.
    Keeping in mind we are bombarded with all those nasty space high energy particles every day anyway, it is probably why we get cancer.

    Besides the magnetic field doesn’t go away, it just screws up the compasses.

    • Nailbanger says:

      I wonder if the axis of the earths spin changes? Now that could make things real interesting

      • durangokidd says:

        Yes, there is a “wobble” even now. Isaiah said that during the End Time the earth will “rock to and fro like a drunkard”. 🙁

        • Very true – I named my pole shift theory in honor of those verses in Isaiah….

          Every 6XXX years our Solar System passes through the Milky Way’s Galactic Plane. This plane has incredible gravitational forces, and when the earth passes through, the Oceans/Seas/Water is pushed to the Northern Hemisphere, causing a “Noah’s Flood” type event. The Grand Canyon was formed when the water backed up against the Rocky Mountains, then eventually eroding through the layers of rock. After we pass through, the earth is left rotating about a slightly different axis.

          Cheers,

          Bill

    • rellik, toxins in our food, water and air are the biggest reasons for cancer, as well as what we call doctors and medicine !

    • marie says:

      This might be a stupid question, but is the radiation only in the daytime? Or is it at night too? If only in the daytime then us night owls would be ok. And will the radiation go thro the roof into the house? Will we have to live in the cellar in the daytime or all the time?

  5. TEST says:

    Take this as you will, the words of Jesus re. the end days: “And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and looking after those things which are coming on the earth; for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.’

    – Luke 21:25-26

    I am NOT saying this story is directly applicable to the words of Christ in Luke, nor do I know when the next pole reversal will be. But it very well could be, and one day the Lord will indeed return, accompanies by these signs.

    With everything going on, and everything that can go wrong, You got to be a special kind of stupid not to prep?

  8. Old Guy says:

    Now this subject is something Ive researched and experimented with since I was a Little kid. I did every one of the dry cell battery experments in the science books. Built crystal radios. have a CB that reaches 40 miles. I quite often mess around with live electricity. Built a microwave gun. Ive studied Telsa’s work. And it is a fact the earths magnetic poles are shifting. and have been shifting increasing amounts lately. But its not a certain thing that there would be a flip or complete reversal. A reversal normally occurs over thousands of years. And If the earths core spinning creates the magnosphere. Just where is the source of energy coming from that makes the core spin? You cannott make something from nothing? (Well the FED created Digital dollars from nothing LOL) But the core does not make the magnosphere. The Sun directs radiation at the magnosphere and that is where the power originates that spins the core. The magnosphere holds earth,s organic life within the planet. And prevents other organic life from entering the earth. Apply logic .

    • dan-o says:

      Good point.
      Also, one thing about iron, when it gets hot it LOSES it’s magnetic properties.That’s how knife smiths know when to start forging. They touch a magnet to the hot iron. If it DOESN’T attract the magnet, it’s hot enough. I worked in a steel mill and molten steel is not magnetic. Whether it is spinning or not.
      Some other process is creating the magnetic field. NOT a molten core.

    • HerMan says:

      Yes the fed made nothing from nothing. Amazing the value people put on it.

    • Old Guy, actually all life got here on this planet from space travel one way or another, so not all of your thesis is correct ? The other issue is we do not know when a new pole shift started as we have only been capable of even scratching the surface of observation in a miniscule time scale of recent events. So this could be well advanced. There is clear evidence that the actual magnetic poles have moved in just the last 100 years for sure. But we have no idea how much over time. It is likely just another cycle in the grand scheme of things in our solar system and universe ? No big deal, so enjoy the ride as we are all only renting when all is said and done !

    It’s time to wake up to the dangers and start preparing.
    The Magnetic Field Is Shifting, The Poles are flipping, This Could Get Bad — not my thought, but from the article

    Magnetic Reversal Special Episode | S0 News Feb.24.201

  11. Archivist says:

    The only effect we’ll see from a magnetic pole flip is our magnetic compasses will suddenly be wrong.

    • Old Guy says:

      /archivist you are pretty much correct if the reversal is gradual over time. But a sudden flip like when you try to push opposing poles of two magnets together and let go and they turn and attach to each other. That would cause extreme crustal shifting of the Tectonic Plates and a huge world wide clatyclism that would be earthquakes floods, volcanic eruptions and weather anomolys.

      • Old Guy, all of that is possible, but nobody actually knows what could or would happen for sure. What we do know is that the earths surface has changed drastically over a long period of time and not all at once in various events. So it is always moving , just in slomo ! What forces can pop up and cause greater motion ?we have no idea, just pure speculation and timing of such.

        That is why much of what we call science is a farce, religions a well. The universe and cosmos is a force unto itself and all life comes from that source. That is also a clue to knowledge !

  12. It will make the frogs gay.

  13. vocalpatriot says:

    so what if this “big flip” isn’t instant..say it takes many centuries or eons?
    I’ve been hearing this crap for most of my life and am being worn thin on the fabricated crisis agenda.

    • Old Guy says:

      If the flip is gradual you have cold places getting warmer and vice versa. shifting shore lines. climate change. and so on. No really big extinction level changes. kinda like what is happening at present. When the magnosphere is weakened or disrupted . That sometimes lets high speed space winds reach our atmosphere. causing jet stream changes and weather anonolys. The poles are indeed shifting. Personally I don’t think we are going to see a instant flip or reversal. We will likely see a dramatic adjustment that occurs in a short period of time. Some places will get so cold that organic life will freeze. Like those wolly mammoths they found in the ice. And we will have a new equator. and a entirely different planet. It is the ending of an age. My advice Prep for a stone age existence. anything less so much the better. OR just say Fuck it. I will depend on luck. or I will trust in God. Or the government will fix it.and who knows one choice might be as good as the other. Maybe you will be raptured. Or better yet benevelonent aliens will take you up in their space ship and save you?

    Thrown back? NO! How about thrown forward into a Mad Max style life? I know few if any have all the
    tools,seeds,LAND,etc. to live a 1800’s life.Within 1 year 90% of the world’s industrialized nations populations will be dead.AND,all it takes is one CME of biblical proportions (Rev.8:5)to do the same only worse!

  19. Fanie says:

    How do they know the earth has a molten core !
    The deepest hole ever made in earth was the Kola Superdeep Borehole by the Russians, and that was only 12km deep. How do they know the earth has a molten core, and what about Admiral Byrd’s hollow earth ?

  20. Old Guy says:

    I don’t know what the core of the earth is made of or what it looks like. I do know this you cannot make something from nothing. and you cannot make something into nothing. that why perpetual motion does not work. So anyone stating that the spinning core creates the magnosphere is claiming something from nothing. That is as absurd as stating the electric starter on a car charges the battery. So far as I can tell its our sun that powers the planet. So logic tells me that the sun is the power source for the magnosphere. The magnosphere is a big solar collector. and the Van Allen radiation belts and a radiation barrier. that prevents organic life from leaving or entering our planet. Yes Virginia the Moon landings where all faked. Now its plausible that the Nibiru Theory could have merit. Im skeptical. But just say it does make that 3600 year orbit. Andwhen it passes by our planet It causes a disturbance that opens portals in the Van Allen belts to allow the Annuki to fly their craft to the earth. and when they arrived here they altered the DNA of the life forms of every thing to suit their purpose. and of course after the passage those annuki who remained where trapped here. Someone built the pyramids and it certainly wasn’t modern humans or thousands of ancient slaves. There have been giants on the planet ranging in height from ten to over thirty feet tall. And folks had their skeletons on display. and the smithstonian took them and destroyed them. Like I stated its plausible but I have no proof. In very skeptical.

    Mac I come to this site several times a day and enjoy the articles and the comments. I posted two comments one 24 hours ago and one maybe 10 hours ago and both are not showing. What is the reason for that?
    Thank you

    Hello kinfolk, I’ve seen a few visions that have come to pass is why I share the following. I very vividly saw Revelation 12 in a vision before I even read or knew about the verse. It indeed describes a pole shift that is caused by Nibiru (red dragon, red kachina, planet x) due to Nibirus enormous mass and electromagnetic pull. The poles are shifting more and more rapidly each day. At a certain point (very soon) the poles will shift at light speed and will cause an evolutionary jump planned by the creator of course ?. So called junk DNA will be activated and there will be the new heaven on Earth as foretold in the gogospel. Sounds bizarre i understand. However, when you see meteors from Nibirus magnetic field hitting Earth (Michigan and China very recently) and see new planets very very visible in the sky, know that this message indeed has merit. Repent sincerely for your sins and accept the true creator’s son Jesus Christ as your savior for that is why God sent his son to save us from the dark lords world of sin and death. This from a average man not born into any religion, only a seeker of truth. The rabbit hole leads to Christ my kin. Much love We 1 ? Revelation 12 I watched as he opened the sixth seal. There was a great earthquake. The sun turned black like sackcloth made of goat hair, the whole moon turned blood red, 13 and the stars in the sky fell to earth, as figs drop from a fig tree when shaken by a strong wind. 14 The heavens receded like a scroll being rolled up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place.

  23. Old Guy says:

    Like Dr Spock on Star Treck. I believe in logic. I certainly am not goinig to believe a lie myth about some pregnant virgin. Now if she had claimed that she had been abducted and artificial insemenated I might believe that. And still a virgin when she gave birth? Heck Old Joe would have been dicking that pussy and riding the hump until right before she gave birth. And I don’t believe in something for nuthin. I never asked anyone to die for my sins. Heck no I want full credit for all of my deeds both good and bad. Gullible brainwashed Christians! Yea I know God is a gonna get me for that!

    • We 1 says:

      Im all for logic Doc Spock. People become possessed from unseen spirits (witnessed 1st hand) Some would say that defies logic. On the topic of Star Trek, time travel is possible and ive seen into the future many a time. Some would say that defies logic. Due to logic and experience I know there is a spirit realm and we have a 3rd eye that is spiritual in nature that if opened allows one to communicate with spirit realm and time travel. “When thine eye is single the body is full of light”. That bible verse is talking of 3rd eye pineal gland spiritual eye. Its all quite logical and widely spoken upon thru the ages. So is it such a stretch that the creator could have a virgin insemminated? Why do evil ones hate Jesus if hes not rral my friend? When you see these meteors and planets perhaps reconsider, much love my friend. We 1
