Forget global warming, worry about the
MAGNETOSPHERE: Earth´s magnetic field is
collapsing and it could affect the climate and
wipe out power grids

Daily Mail (U.K.), by Ellie Zolfagharifard

Deep within the Earth, a fierce molten core is generating a magnetic field capable of defending our planet against devastating solar winds. The protective field extends thousands of miles into space and its magnetism affects everything from global communication to animal migration and weather patterns. But this magnetic field, so important to life on Earth, has weakened by 15 per cent over the last 200 years. And this, scientists claim, could be a sign that the Earth’s poles are about to flip. Experts believe we´re currently overdue a flip, but they´re unsure when this could occur. If a switch happens, we would be exposed

Bear in mind that a ´hole´ in the ozone layer refers to a thinning, or lessening, of the amount of ozone. It does NOT lessen down to the level of zero, and the word ´hole´ implies.

Did the magnetosphere leak out of the ozone hole, or perhaps was a victim of the event horizon of one of Hawkins non-existent black holes?

What I just wrote makes as much sense as this article.

OH, my - has this idiocy returned?

First point; the poles have never "flipped." What they´ve done is measured the magnetic field strength at the Mid-Atlantic ridge, which fluctuates as it interacts with the assorted magma fields that have come up from the divergent plates located in the middle of the Atlantic (this, the Mid-Atlantic ridge.)

If you draw a line thru the middle of the sine curves this field strength measurement produces, you get an arbitrary "zero" point. It´s more accurate to say it´s closer to the ambient magnetic field, but it´s in no way, whatsoever, related to North & South. It´s just a field strength measurement.

However, this has been accepted as de facto proof that Earth´s magnetic field has reversed "several times over the planet´s history." Rubbish! It proves nothing, and is a complete misunderstanding of the data!
Nowhere along the Mid-Atlantic ridge do compasses fluctuate, flutter, or swing as they pass thru alternating N/S fields, but instead only a magnometer will measure rises & falls in the magnetic field strength.

These "polar swappers" are very, very confused.

The only solution is to pump something into the atmosphere to block the increased radiation from the sun reaching the Earth´s surface because the magnetosphere is collapsing - how about carbon - it´s cheap, plentiful, and we know how to pump it into the atmosphere. Problem solved!

The list of things that could go wrong with the natural world in the next million years is very long. The list of things that will go wrong is very short. The number of things on either list that humans can affect is close to zero. Sometimes you just have to quit being afraid the sky is going to fall and go ahead and live your life.

#11 may be right but...

the magnetic field is changing. For 30 years I´ve watched runway headings have to be "renamed" to correspond to the actual magnetic field direction.

For example, a runway heading might have been 260, but is now 250 degrees.

Slow change for sure, but a change !

"The impact could be devastating for mankind, knocking out power grids, radically changing Earth’s climate and driving up rates of cancer."

Obama is already knocking out the power grid with his hatred of coal and oil, I thought the Earth´s climate was changing because of those awful gasoline driven cars and cow farts and cigarette smoking and second hand smoke, has been blamed for driving up rates of cancer. SO you are going to have to find another excuse to fund another science project.

#11: Isn’t that caused by the always moving North Magnetic Pole?

Aren’t we mixing apples and oranges?

When I was aligning Intertial Measurment Units (IMUs) in ICBMs in the ‘60s, that’s why we used the North Star and declination tables instead of Magnetic North because, it was always in motion!

Actually, it’s all Bush’s fault and has nothing to do with cell phone or lap top use.

#21 - archaeologists also make distinctions between magnetic north and ´true´ north. Magnetic north has been observed to ´wander´ in a cycle of about 8,000 years. When archaeologists find burned material in a site, or items that had been in a fire (like stone) they can date the age of the site by what magnetism the item is ´set´.

Al Gore et al are getting away with this because we as a country have failed to teach science.

#11 - When magnetic rocks cool, they record the magnetic field when and where they cooled. Some of these point north, some point south, and they´re in bands spreading out from the mid-ocean ridges. The zeros are not arbitrary. They record periods of no discernible magnetic field. The field will weaken, there may be multiple magnetic poles wandering about, and the field will settle in the more-or-less the opposite orientation of where it is now. It has happened hundreds of times that we can measure. And there´s not a damn thing we can do about it.

The former first lady, secretary of state and potential 2016 presidential candidate encountered the passionate young woman while taking questions at a “Girls: A No Ceilings Conversation” event at the Lower East Side Girl’s Club in Manhattan, “I have a very different glass ceiling than some of the girls are exhibiting here.

The ´War on Women´ Failed in 2012
Wall Street Journal, by Michael Medved    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 4/17/2014 7:48:13 PM     Post Reply
President Obama is suddenly upset about the alleged wage gap between men and women, but he´s not responding to a national economic crisis. Instead, he is attempting to revive the "war on women" theme that, according to Washington wisdom, helped carry Democrats to victory in 2012 and might do again in 2014. If this narrative were true, the White House could spend the year demonizing Republicans as women-hating creeps, driving women to the polls in November and helping the party hold the Senate. But the conventional analysis isn´t accurate. National exit polls from 2012 show scant success for the war-on-women

Regulation: In a victory for common sense, a federal judge has voided a race-based mandate of the Dodd-Frank Act that would have cost manufacturers and retailers billions in compliance expenses. Marking the first time a court has ruled that a provision of Dodd-Frank violates the Constitution, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit held that the financial "reform" law´s bizarre rule requiring companies to disclose whether their products contain "conflict minerals" from Africa violates the First Amendment.

Anyone wondering why the U.S. economy can´t seem to grow at its usual pace should examine one product category where production is booming: federal regulation. Washington set a new record in 2013 by issuing final rules consuming 26,417 pages in the Federal Register. While plenty of government employees deserve credit for this milestone, leadership matters. And by this measure President Obama has never been surpassed in the Oval Office.
