    just saw news story of magnetic pole moving from canada towards russia. there seems to be a plume of magnetic coming up.

    that kinda an old one - i would like to see an updated one.
    anyhow the first reason behind the movie "the core" is that our earth's poles reverse themselves every 300,000 yrs or so and in the first draft of the movie that was the whole basis.
    the core spinning slows down and reverses direction.
    but what if it doesnt do that but constantly moves on this path around the earth and so eventually the north is south.

    anyhow looking at certain rocks formations crystalize in a N-S magnetic direction and upon different layers that N-S direction switchs to the opposite way. which they think is the reversing of the poles due to the core stopping and reversing.

    now, we have birdpocalypse

    They have to re-paint the numbers all the time, the magnetic poles constantly wander. There's really nothing to see here in these stories, stuff like this happens all the time and the only reason it's news is because nobody was looking at it before the "magnetic pole" scare.

    even right at the top of the msnbc story
    'These large events do take place; it's not terribly unusual,' says U.S. official

    As someone with a background heavy in science - I call bull**** that anyone can say with any certainty what's really normal or what's really going on.

    Data for mass die offs only goes back 40 years... and that is unsettling because officials are saying it's normal when their data isn't sufficient to define normal.

    Data on the magnetic fields is a shoddy science at best.
    ...

    It's like climatologists arguing over global warming when we have a couple hundred years of data to go off of... considering theres been millions, billions of years of data we don't have... only indirect guestimations.

    Animal death mystery: 8k turtle doves fall dead in Italy with blue stain on beaks | Mail Online

    Overeating and indigestion blamed for 1,000 turtle doves falling dead in Italy with strange blue stain on their beaks


    • Blue stain believed to be sign of poisoning or hypoxia - lack of oxygen that is precursor to altitude sickness
    • Cold weather and overbreeding blamed for deaths of two 2million fish in Chesapeake Bay
    • Disease behind deaths of 100,000 fish in Arkansas River
    • At least nine incidents of mass animal deaths across the globe
    • Hundreds of confused birds plummeted to their deaths in multiple locations in the U.S.
    • Rapid movement of Magnetic North Pole towards Russia may have caused bird deaths

    The North Pole is Canada's, its ours and no one else can have it

    we have secured it and are towing it back home by one of our ice breakers

    Santa would be so proud!

    Well I would certainly hope so. Russia should not be tryin to steal the north pole from yall. Gotta be careful between the Russians and Sara tryin to take and move it to Alaska, yall need to keep your north pole where it is ! Next thing ya know Iceland or Russia or someone easternishy, will be tryin to steal the Mississippi River or something. Everyone needs to try to keep ahold, of what is our own.

    Besides who would want a buncha disorienteted 'Canadian' Polar bears nor Santas reindeeers, all tryin to have to learn, the Russian language.

    Nyet !

    Scientists know what is causing it, but fear to release the news and cause global panic...
