Interesting topic 🙂 I talked about this very subject on my radio show the other morning. I honestly wish I could say that I am surprised by the announcement that the magnetic polar ‘flip’ could occur within our lifetime. Thank you Alvin for sharing this news with us 🙂

The Extinction Protocol

October 2014GEOLOGY Earth’s magnetic field is constantly shifting, and roughly every 200,000 to 300,000 years it flips north and south completely. We’re currently overdue for a switcheroo—and scientists now say it could happen in a time as short as 100 years, potentially altering life in unexpected ways. It was long thought that these reversals took as many as 7,000 years to completely switch, according to a 2004 study funded by the National Science Foundation. But over the past few years, other scientists have suggested that the shifts have occurred at speeds previously unimagined. And a brand-new study published in the Geophysical Journal International by a team of scientists from Europe and the U.S. sheds even more light on these speedy changes—suggesting that the last 180-degree flip only took about 100 years. How did they discern changes in the magnetic field that date back hundreds of thousands of…
