Flipping Poles

Polar Opposites,                              

  Eleni, in Athens, with access to army scuttlebutt, says that the Greek military, and from her vantage, ALL militaries are expecting massive war/tumult in about 2025.

  We know that oil is running low, and so on, and that the western financial regime is running on fumes and hopium (and Fed promises).
That does not say "2025".

  Here is my musing about what may be predictably unpredictable about 2025.  
It made me think of magnetic pole flip, as per my NASA friend, Mel, 
Mel is of the informed opinion that pole reversal has been an increasing concern in NASA for at least 2 decades, and suddenly more so recently.

This was the view in 2014:
Scientists already know that magnetic north shifts. Once every few hundred thousand years the magnetic poles flip so that a compass would point south instead of north. While changes in magnetic field strength are part of this normal flipping cycle, data from Swarm have shown the field is starting to weaken faster than in the past. Previously, researchers estimated the field was weakening about 5 percent per century, but the new data revealed the field is actually weakening at 5 percent per decade, or 10 times faster than thought. As such, rather than the full flip occurring in about 2,000 years, as was predicted, the new data suggest it could happen sooner.

  Everything went silent in 2020 when the World Magnetic Model update came out.  
In 2019, awaiting that update, they were more open and chatty, then they CLAMMED-UP.
Official data from NASA, NOAA, the ESA, and similarly reputable organizations.

Daily Space Weather Update

Ben talks about magnetic field weakening/collapse "in our very near future".   That raises the question again, of whether lead roll roofing needs to go under sheet steel, for cosmic radiation protectionIf large animals will die outside, and even under a tree, but not in a cave, ...what's enough?  


World Magnetic Model software download is here:

World Magnetic Model was updated in 2020, but there is no story about what they found, just the software download, for which you must log-in.  

The World Magnetic Model

The World Magnetic Model is a joint product of the United States’ National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) and the United Kingdom’s Defence Geographic Centre (DGC). The WMM was developed jointly by the National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI, Boulder CO, USA) (formerly National Geophysical Data Center (NGDC)) and the British Geological Survey (BGS, Edinburgh, Scotland).

The World Magnetic Model is the standard model used by the U.S. Department of Defense, the U.K. Ministry of Defence, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and the International Hydrographic Organization (IHO), for navigation, attitude and heading referencing systems using the geomagnetic field. It is also used widely in civilian navigation and heading systems. The model, associated software, and documentation are distributed by NCEI on behalf of NGA. The model is produced at 5-year intervals, with the current model expiring on December 31, 2024.

"Regarding increased radiation, that would go along with decreased shielding, [but] it seems that the atmosphere would still provide sufficient shielding at Earth's surface that humans and animals would not be significantly affected," she told in an email. 

"However, all the effects we currently only see during strong solar/geomagnetic storms would likely increase and occur ... during moderate solar activity," she added. "This includes satellite outages or damage to satellites, increased radiation doses on long-distance aircraft and the ISS [International Space Station], [and] distortions of telecommunication and GPS signals."

Ongoing monitoring of the Earth's geomagnetic field (which includes the pole) will continue after the WMM release, principally through the European Space Agency Swarm mission, Korte said. But she noted that measuring the north magnetic pole's position is a challenge. That's because the pole is located in a remote area and the measurement of Earth's magnetic field is influenced by all magnetic-field sources — including the magnetic fields found in Earth's atmosphere (the ionosphere and magnetosphere). 

"It will depend on the future magnetic field change, which we cannot predict, if another update to the model out of the usual schedule might be required," she added.

The next update to the WMM after this year's  is expected early in 2020, Beggan said.  You can read more about the WMM here.

About that lack of harm to animals...

The most recent reversal of Earth’s magnetic field may have been as recent as 42,000 years ago, according to a new analysis of fossilised tree rings. This flip of the magnetic poles would have been devastating, creating extreme weather and possibly leading to the extinction of large mammals and the Neanderthals.
