The Weakening Of Earth’s Magnetic Field Has Greatly Accelerated, And That Could Have Apocalyptic Implications For All Of Us

    This article was originally published by Michael Snyder at The Economic Collapse

    Earth’s magnetic field is getting significantly weaker, the magnetic north pole is shifting at an accelerating pace, and scientists readily admit that a sudden pole shift could potentially cause “trillions of dollars” in damage.  Today, most of us take the protection provided by Earth’s magnetic field completely for granted.  It is essentially a colossal force field which surrounds our planet and makes life possible.  And even with such protection, a giant solar storm could still potentially hit our planet and completely fry our power grid.  But as our magnetic field continues to get weaker and weaker, even much smaller solar storms will have the potential to be cataclysmic.  And once the magnetic field gets weak enough, we will be facing much bigger problems.  As you will see below, if enough solar radiation starts reaching our planet none of us will survive.

    Previously, scientists had told us that the magnetic field was weakening by about 5 percent every 100 years.

    But now we are being told that data collected from the SWARM satellite indicate that the rate of decay is now 5 percent per decade

    It’s well established that in modern times, the axial dipole component of Earth’s main magnetic field is decreasing by approximately 5% per century. Recently, scientists using the SWARM satellite announced that their data indicate a decay rate ten times faster, or 5% per decade.

    In case you didn’t quite get that, 5 percent per decade is 10 times faster than 5 percent per century.

    If the rate of decay continues at this pace, or if it speeds up even more, we could be looking at a mass extinction event that is beyond what most people would dare to imagine.

    As more solar radiation reaches Earth, we would expect to see a rise in cancer rates, and this is something that even National Geographic has acknowledged

    However, if the magnetic field gets substantially weaker and stays that way for an appreciable amount of time Earth will be less protected from the oodles of high-energy particles that are constantly flying around in space. This means that everything on the planet will be exposed to higher levels of radiation, which over time could produce an increase in diseases like cancer, as well as harm delicate spacecraft and power grids on Earth.

    Of course we are already seeing this.  Cancer rates have been rising all over the world, and if you live in the United States there is a one in three chance that you will get cancer in your lifetime.

    But as the magnetic field continues to weaken, things will get worse.

    A lot worse.

    The weaker the magnetic field gets, the amount of solar radiation that will reach us will rise, and eventually it would get so bad that the entire human race would be in jeopardy.  The following comes from Futurism

    Radiation and cosmic rays are a real concern for NASA, especially when it comes to long-term spaceflight.  Astronauts on a mission to Mars could undergo up to 1000 times the exposure to radiation and cosmic rays that they would get on Earth.  If Earth’s magnetic field disappeared, the entire human race – and all of life, in fact –  would be in serious danger.  Cosmic rays would bombard our bodies and could even damage our DNA, increasing worldwide risk of cancer and other illnesses.  The flashes of light visible when we close our eyes would be the least of our problems.

    And even if some of us found a way to survive underground for a while, we still wouldn’t be able to survive because solar winds would strip away our planet’s atmosphere and oceans

    Without Earth’s magnetic field, solar winds — streams of electrically charged particles that flow from the sun — would strip away the planet’s atmosphere and oceans. As such, Earth’s magnetic field helped to make life on the planet possible, researchers have said.

    So could such a scenario actually happen?

    Well,  some scientists are saying that our magnetic field “could be gone in as little as 500 years”, but they are telling us not to worry because Earth’s magnetic poles will “flip” and things will eventually return to normal…

    The magnetic field surrounding Earth is weakening, and scientists say it could be gone in as little as 500 years.

    The result? Earth’s magnetic poles could, literally, flip upside down.

    Of course most scientists believe that a pole flip takes hundreds or thousands of years to happen, but they don’t actually know because they have never seen one take place.

    They also believe that we would potentially be facing “trillions of dollars in damage”to our power grid and electrical infrastructure because the magnetic field would be so weak during a flip…

    Storms far less powerful than these could cause much more damage if they happened to hit while Earth’s magnetic field was in the midst of a reversal, Roberts said. The result would likely be trillions of dollars in damage to our electrical infrastructure, and right now, there’s no plan for dealing with an event of that magnitude.

    “Hopefully, such an event is a long way in the future and we can develop future technologies to avoid huge damage,” Roberts concluded. Keep your fingers (but not your magnetic-field lines) crossed.

    Most of the experts also believe that a pole flip is still a long way off, but what everybody agrees on is that the magnetic north pole is moving toward Russia at an accelerating pace

    But what’s really catching attention is the acceleration in movement. Around the mid-1990s, the pole suddenly sped up its movements from just over 9 miles (15 kilometers) a year to 34 miles (55 kilometers) annually. As of last year, the pole careened over the international date line toward the Eastern Hemisphere.

    And earlier this year, authorities had to issue an emergency update to global positioning systems because “the magnetic field is changing so rapidly”

    The most recent version of the model came out in 2015 and was supposed to last until 2020 — but the magnetic field is changing so rapidly that researchers have to fix the model now. “The error is increasing all the time,” says Arnaud Chulliat, a geomagnetist at the University of Colorado Boulder and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA’s) National Centers for Environmental Information.

    I know that I must sound like a broken record by now, but this is important.  Our planet is becoming increasingly unstable, and we are seeing things happen that we have never seen before.

    Everyone agrees that the Earth’s magnetic field is rapidly getting weaker, and that is making us more vulnerable with each passing day.

    Most of the experts are trying to put a happy face on things and are assuring us that everything is going to be okay.

    Hopefully they are right, but I wouldn’t count on it.

      1. Oh my goodness. This is the end. I bet you have some prepper supplies to sell that will totally help you survive.
        Or at least we need to raise taxes.
        I do not believe a damn word of this tripe. All this website
        is is doom porn. Stop just stop.

        • Interesting post from a border agent about the agenda for the US. From Quayles site:

          ht tps://

          • steve quayle
            brilliant source. NOT!!
            Several years ago Quayle Had me convinced Russian invasion of europe because Russian troops massing. And nukes were on way to USA. His “insider” general’s “secret” info.

            Not sure if he believed his own bravo sierra or just fear mongering?

            But I have never will Never listen to ANYTHING he says.
            No thanks.

            Steve Quayle not good source. I don’t care what he has to say about anything. Neither should you.

            Gold is down. $$Buy gold. $$Buy silver. Reload ammo. Buy Ammo. Food stores are good idea.
            That is all.

            • Ya he is a fearmonger of the highest order for sure. But what that guy said makes sense. I think maranatha was quayle? LOL.

              • It must be the Shemitah.

        • We come for the pop-ups and stay for the doom porn.

          Is that a feller knee? A mister meaner? Looks can be dis evening. Lotsa good stuff in the comments.

          • JRS, how do you kleen yer keg out?

            • Ya got me there. Can’t figger that one out.

            • Genius I’ve been trying to post for two days now but they keep disappearing. Been trying to tell you how I clean my keg.

              • been running into the same issue, not happy about it.

                may have to move to a new community

          • And all the colored girls say, “Doot ta-doot ta-doot”……..

            • repr that question was for you! Ooops lol.

              • I use mostly soap, hot water and a long handle brush. I also use StarSan and PRS, and I always completely wipe down the inside dry with a clean white towel. You can also use Vinegar and hot water too but you’ll need to rinse well to get any lingering vinegar smell. You can order StarSan and PRS on the internet and it lasts a long time The StarSan is mostly for Sanitizing your keg and you want to rinse it real good after you use the StarSan.

                • Gotcha, I have seen the kits for converting kegs online. I want to find a SS 55 gallon drum with removeable lid. The SS drums I have seen were a small fortune though.

                  • If you make peach cobbler or apple pie I found a trick to make it a lot better. When you make your mash for the clear add 6 cans (15oz.) of sweet corn to it (per 4 gallons mash). It gives it a slight corn/pie crust flavor that really compliments the rest. I finished my double rye with apple wood cure (75% apple 25% oak). It turned out really good and smooth. You can definately taste the apple. I think I like the 1/3 rye with 2/3 barley a little better though. I found malt extract in 32 pound containers for a great deal too! 😛

                    • I’ll give that sweet corn a whirl. Everybody wants to know when I’m gonna bring some off. I’m a double rye person. I’ve had some good ones and especially like High West double rye. A little pricey though but smooth when on the rocks.

                    • Did you ever write down my rye wheesky recipe? The 1/3 rye is comparable to knob creek rye. The one I just did is 50/50 rye/barley. I promise you won’t be dissapointed if you try it. No grains just malt extracts. SMOOOOOOOOOTH TOO! 😉

                    • I’ve wondered how to make high quality whisky from cheap over the counter grain alcohol.

                      I mean it’s cheap and you paid the state tax… Keep receipts.

                      There are used barrels, and cheap tea bag burnt wood flavorings. Did I say keep your receipts…..

                  • Yup and the shipping cost on them is no joke either. I bought my Keg right from a local liquor store. Just walked in and asked the owner would he sell me one. Paid $45.00 bucks for it. Went back a month later and bought another one. That time he asked me what was I doing with them and I told him I was making crab steamers out of them which is what we do use for that here. I bought a stainless steel bucket from tractor supply and a hole in the top of the keg a little smaller than the bucket top. Then I cut a circle out of a sheet of copper and then another hole in the center of the copper until it was just a ring about 1 1/2 inches wide and wrapped pipe thread tape (the wide roll) until it was like a gasket. I cut a hole in the bucket bottom and that’s where I mounted my 2 inch copper riser. This allows me to remove the bucket and give me about an eigth inch hole access to clean the Keg.

        • Yep just a bullshit site anymore it seems.

          • It’s good to BS with other preppers. A lot of good ideas are here in the comments. Articles may be something else but it’s like an idea/chat forum of it’s own in here lol.

            • as long as they quit deleting comments lol.
              otherwise, yes the comments (and the people) are where its at here.

        • The whole “SHTF phenomenon”, has gotten blown way out of proportion by “doom/gloom” websites as well as dedicated fans of SHTF websites..Another thing that was blown out of proportion was the SCRIPTED Hollywood “survival shows”..I never did buy into the whole “Survivalist” mentality or those scripted Hollywood “survival shows” where the audience is told the Survivalist is living totally off the grid and other BS..Do a little research and you’ll see just how “Off the grid” many of the so called “Survivalists” actually are..In the end,after all the BS is cleaned up,it’s ALWAYS about MONEY!!!!!…

        • This is all we have. Please just go away. I always say odds are my kin are going to load huge dumpsters with my preps when I die. But better safe than sorry I say. We need more doom porn not less. Keeps us sharp and on our toes.

      2. There are so many things we have no control over. We prep because it makes sense. We have bee hives chickens grow as much food as possible. Last fall when the hurricane knocked our power out for 5 days our generator did the job. We are ready for ordinary events but cataclysmic events are beyond our control.

      3. This web site is such a Joy.
        “End of the World”
        “End of Economy”
        “End of USA”

        Yet each morning we all wake up. Ok, ….at least most of us make it through the night.
        New day.
        Birds singing.

        But once you turn on TV….. It is end of everything!!. Always a crises. And most importantly…. “Trump did it!” “Trump did everything bad!” “Trump supporters did it!”

        Turn off your TV.
        Turn off the internet. We canceled cable.(that saved money now goes to gold/silver/ammo purchase)
        Turn off your radio.
        Go outside. Go for a walk. Bike ride.
        Get a dog to walk.
        You will find out that all is mostly well.

        Unplug from negative psycho babbel “end of the world” media and doom gloom web pages.

        Yes they will be right one day. But there is not a damn thing you personally can do about it.

        What you can do for long life:
        So grow your garden.
        Get some chickens, rabbits, and a goat or three.
        Reload your Ammo. Reload some more.
        Put away at least a few months groceries and water.
        Buy some gold/silver. Put away $1000 in small bills for emergency $1, $5, $10, a few $20, rolls of quarters.
        Get your Passport. Be ready to leave your home in 15 minutes. Pack a bag.
        Get in Top physical condition with good cardio.
        Get off your ass and walk, run, bike, swim, do ruck marches. Loose weight, get in shape.
        Don’t smoke. Drink in moderation. No fast food joints.
        Don’t take meds. Never do drugs. Stay away from doctors and hospitals.
        Say your prayers before you sleep, and when you wake.

        Now you have done all you can. So stop worrying.
        Stop being manipulated be profiteers/politicians/media.

        You will be fine. No worries. Today is a good day. We are fortunate to live in the present times.

        Have courage.
        Gob Bless America.
        Long Live our Republic.
        Be of good Cheer.

        • Yep,,,
          Been a while since there was good SHTFprepping info, now is mostly doom n gloom porn,,,

          • Prepping info is in the comment section. Be a “share bear” 😀

        • Internet doom/gloom sites are responsible for creating 98% of the preppers today..
          People swallowed the fear porn bait hook,line,sinker and became convinced that the end was near..Every year it’s the same chicken little “sky is falling” routine and It’s rinse/repeat..

      4. If it’s not hurricanes, it’s water spouts, or tropical storms, If it’s not that it’s wildfires, If it’s not that it’s tornadoes, If it’s not that it’s earthquakes. If it’s not that it’s pole shifts. Life in America, OHH ME.

        • and flooding.. you forgot flooding….

          there won’t be any food next year…

          • Uhhhh have they even planted yet? Kinda early for that call I think. Besides, it aint flooding here and lot’s of produce at the farmers markets. Maybe the big cities will eat shit but hey…. they deserve it.

      5. Really puts a hole in that global warming nonsense.

      6. cancer rates have been increasing due to big pharma, corporations, etc. who are poisoning us every day in our food, air, water, additives, etc…get rid of greed and we would relinquish cancer

        • Well said.

        • getting rid of (((greed))) would be 666 times better

      7. Its all Trumps fault, because he pulled out of the climate accord.
        The CO2 helps the Magnetic field stay strong.

      8. Actually the magnetic poles have been shifting a great amount and speeding up in the movements in Recient years. This is a actuall fact. Its believed a similar shift happened during Noah’s time and again During the time of the Exidous? What the shifting ploes do is they effect the Magnetosphere. The magnetosphere protects the planet from space winds and radiation ect. We are in the Beginning stages of a Pole Shift. Maybe a complete reversal? nuthin we can do to mitigate it So we just as well embrace the new adventure. Ive researched the whole thing. Im skeptical about NIBIRU haven’t seen any proof. However I did see the Northern Lights here in Arkansas. There has been a big increase in weird weather and clatyclismic events in the last decade. As we get closer to the shift these events will increase in frequency and magnitude. It might be quite the adventure. just think the New Madrid lets loose. The entire delta liquefies and the great lakes pour into the Mississippi river valley. Then all that liquefied earth slips off into the Gulf. I could Go to Calico Rock or black Rock Ark. and be on a ocean or gulf or a big muddy swamp? That would be something to view! Everyone too dumb and stupid to move to high ground would be culled! But you folks Go ahead and think and do whatever you wish & want. Its your call.

        • Well the house is 5600 feet, the cabin is 7000, The nearest mountain is 10,300 feet. I think we’ll be safe?

          • maybe not!

            there is a layer of sea shells at 8000 feet in the rockies, meaning that used to be at sea level. Sudden uplift to that level?

            Also there are cities under water. 60 feet….. and 400 feet.
            Sudden fall?

            So… just never know.

            • Ya I have found seashell fossils at 11,000 feet in Nevada myself. Could be from the great flood? Part of the ancient Lake Bonneville. Not a hell of a lot I can do if thats the case again. So I guess I will just party like it’s 1999!

              • The land masses continually move. Mountains were formed where plates smashed together. The tops of mountains not formed by a volcano were once at sea or below sea level. The earths topography is not static.

        • Very thoughtful and informative posting. Also, fits a scripture that I read regarding the heat of Sun scorching men’s skin .Revelation 16:9 –and people were burned by the intense heat. So they blasphemed the name of God, who had the power over these plagues, and they did not repent and give Him glory.
          Something else to consider.

      9. If everybody dies at once no one will be left to care. Hopefully the pole shift ravages those elite burrowed underground rats becoming an unescapable tomb.

        • Eh I think it would be better if they were trapped down there with no way out ever! Imagine the infighting and insanity and all manner of backstabbing and everything that would come of that situation? It would be justice in spades!

      10. Does this mean all the Democrats will float off the planet to Fairyland?

        • I’m keeping my fingers crossed that they do. And the sooner the better.

      11. Snyder is a lawyer. Why doesn’t he write about legal matters. I don’t go to my acupuncture and massage therapy expert to get advice on how to build a bomb shelter; and, I don’t want advice from a lawyer on electromagnetism theory.

        I have a theory that Michael Snyder is being paid to create fear. The question is- why?. I have some theories about the why as well.


        • My thoughts exactly.

        • It’s all about money.

      12. North can be south and east can be west doesn’t matter cus direction or “that way” doesn’t change because its not like everything will move my house will still be where my house is and the liquor store will still be where it is . Sense of direction is natural some have the ability and some don’t. I will still know what direction the east coast and west coast and florida is.

      13. Melinnials cant even read a map lol

      14. Alright Kiddies…a little perspective is in order here perhaps,

        Roughly every 275-375 thousand years this phenomena occurs quasi-chemically. The evidence for this lies in the Atlantic ocean basin in the form of the solidified magnetic extensions which up well along the (spreading!) Atlantic ridge. When liquid magma solidified it bascally ‘takes a snapshot’ of the local magnetic field at that moment in time, S’OK?
        Sooo…the Atlantic basin’s accesible rock strata has been extensively mapped by NOAA in tandem with USGS (who are actually far better oriented to geophysical assesments, naturally) and suprise, suprise: the frozen magma proceeding outward from the Atlantic Ridgeland is seen to be a series of alternating polarity (magnetic stripes some few dozen miles wide) which given the rate of spreading along the length of the ridge yield the figures initially quouted hereabove.

        First salient point to be made thereon here…after some 40-50 such transitions which have been examined WE ARE STILL HERE AND KICmade, S’OK? Oops, sorry for the all caps…occaisionally a little emphasis is useful.

        The second salient to be made here drawing on the observations we have made is that in all that time the Erth’s biosphere has experienced no discernible mass extinctions…which do occur from time on geological time scales.

        To be sure, there was some event roughly 475,000 years ago give or take, that reduced the pre-human precursors to modern Homo Sapiens to roughly 25 viable breeding pairs…whose genetic are present today in ALL human beings but we do not have any indication that a magnetic pole reversal is, in and of itself intrinsically harmful to life on Earth.

        There are a WHOLE lot of other things to place higher in the prioritized listing of WGAT to worry about than this particular datum…such as our fellow ‘Sapiens as embodied in the MIC blowing us all to smithereens to hide their perfidy in stealing a couple hundred trillion dollars.

        I’m a damn sigh more worried about what humanity does to itself than I am about geoterrestrial or astropysical events and their consequences…with a few, slight exceptions such as what the FERMI paradox suggest.

        Anywho kiddo’s, gotta go for now…it’s a wonderful day in the neighborhood, a wonderful day for a neighbor…


        • Mother of GOD, is there NO way to turn off the ‘auto-screwup’ feature on these dann tablets?!!

          My abject apologies to all concerned for the preceding spelling debacle…I was in a hurry and – in fact – typed all in as it SHOULD have appeared. Unbeknownst to me as I passed from each word this utterly imbecilic tablet elected to supersede all that had bee typed and injected utter crap in place of my post.
          The phrase ‘Fxxk a Duck’ comes to mind here.

          Corrections as follows…2nd line, 1st main paragraph, “extrusions”, NOT “extensions….and I’ll be God-canned if this stupid son-of-a-bitch didn’t just repeat the Fxxk-up exactly as I typed this sentence!!!! God, I hate tablets!
          Second paragraph, NOT “Kickmade”….KICKING” instead.
          Fifth paragraph…”WHAT”…NOT “WGAT”
          Sixth paragraph, “sight”…not “sigh”

          Again, apologies…I do believe in precision of thought AND precision in language, especially where the printed WORD is involved….visualize HUGE face- palm here if you will…

      15. If we ask the PLEIADIANS right they will take us with them when they finish up here.

      16. From the author’s own source:
        “The articles announcing the 5% per decade decline all appear to have arisen six months after SWARM launched, and appear to have misinterpreted early findings.”

      17. Some doomsday scenarios are so horrific that it’s impossible to effectively prepare, an asteroid strike for instance. This appears to be of the same magnitude. You do what you can and otherwise, “enjoy life your going to be dead a long time”.

      18. I’m not sure I like the new format here

      19. Species have always come and gone on Earth, and man will be no different. No, you are not getting off on a space ship to some other world. The good news, cockroaches will survive, so life will continue on Earth, with or without man.

      20. Michael Snyder, you should read Marshall Masters’ book ‘Being In It For The Species’ which describes the negative timeline in detail.
        If you do not wish to spend any money, then check out MM’s website which has the general gist of what the book covered.

      21. It is moving and I for one would like to see the shift. I like to think I am ready but there is always something you need to help you with the “Rat Killin”.

      22. We may become a subterranean species, as androids rule the surface.

        Fear mongering or not, it is a fact that the poles are drifting rapidly and the magnetosphere is weakening fast.
        However, how bad it will get is only speculation.

      23. “Cancer rates have been rising all over the world, and if you live in the United States there is a one in three chance that you will get cancer in your lifetime.” <— caused by the American obesity diet and lifestyle choices. No, it couldn't be from the 75 plus teaspoons of sugar you're eating every day, and the two minutes of activity you get everyday sitting on the toilet pushing your no fiber constipation brick.

        The rates of cancer have gone up 100 fold since the NFL started, we better burn books to save the African Elephants, and don't forget to buy that $500 seed bank.

        Invisible nano-threads in paper money designed to auto incinerate upon pole shift.

        Israel goes after Syria, Jordan and Iran.

      24. This is my world and I’m puttin a happy tree right freakin here ?
        I liked that so much I’m gonna put two more??and maybe a happy little bug right here?

      25. You know we were Jaw boning this subject towards the end of Jan 2018?
        Just had a 5.2 shaker followed by a smaller one. Two of my 3 “active” volcanoes doing a little shaking.
        This is all normal stuff. Floods( I’m under a flash flood watch), blizzards, Magnetic poles moving around, et al.
        What’s in your preparation storage places?

        • Shaken but not stirred, aye rellik?

      26. The sun changes on a multi-cyclical basis and the earth’s magnetic field changes in response. Our climate changes as a result and there is increased seismic and volcanic activity. We’ll have to adjust (if we can) to the changes. The sad part is that people who believe in man-made climate change based on carbon dioxide will try to explain it with a theory that doesn’t work. Don’t buy into carbon tax and carbon credits.

      27. If the iron core of the planet is what gives us the magnetosphere then it stands to reason that the Earth’s magnetic field cannot disappear unless the iron core disappears. I haven’t noticed any iron streaming out of the planet and going into outer space lately, so I must conclude that the Earth is not in danger of losing its magnetic field.

        • I don’t the iron core creates the magnetosphere. What source ofenergy makes the core spin? you cant make something from nothing. Prepetual energy is impossible. My opinion is the sun gives the Magnetosphere the required energy to spin the core. Saying the core creates the Magnetosphere is absurd as saying a vehicles starter charges the battery. Brians post about the Sun changes and the magnetic field changes in response seems to validate my opinion. If the core spinning created the magnetic field whatever the sun does would not effect it.

      28. the bible says in the end of days, God is going to release the sun afflict the whole world with more heat then normal and specifically says in Revelations 16: 2,8 [2] So the first angel went and poured his bowl on the earth, and foul and evil sores came upon the men who bore the mark of the beast and worshiped its image. [8] The fourth angel poured his bowl on the sun, and it was allowed to scorch men with fire; [9] men were scorched by the fierce heat, and they cursed the name of God who had power over these plagues, and they did not repent and give him glory.

        If it a connection to the magnetic field or the solar cycle change, its going to be done to bring God’s righteous judgements to the wicked.

        You can count on this version of the end to be true.

      29. Cosmic rays are supposed to be penetrating, so measured from deep within the Earth.

        wikipedia, Meter water equivalent —
        “In physics, the meter water equivalent (often m.w.e. or mwe) is a standard measure of cosmic ray attenuation in underground laboratories. A laboratory at a depth of 1000 m.w.e is shielded from cosmic rays equivalent to a lab 1,000 m (3,300 ft) below the surface of a body of water. Because laboratories at the same depth (in meters) can have greatly varied levels of cosmic ray penetration, the m.w.e. provides a convenient and consistent way of comparing cosmic ray levels in different underground locations.”

        There is no scientific principle, of which I am aware, in which a magnet provides a forcefield against electricity, electrons, solar or other kinds of radiation.

      30. Worrying about “protecting ‘the grid'” is like worrying about protecting someone who has a gun to your head. That’s how they’ve got everyone duped to bark and chase after whatever they say is a threat to us. Having to mix the metaphors, it’s their “grid” that’s got the gun to our heads!
