European Space Agency: Magnetic North Wandering South Toward Siberia

ESA also says magnetic field is weakening, which can precede pole reversal and leave Earth vulnerable to solar radiation

Earth’s north magnetic pole is drifting south toward Siberia at an accelerating rate, according to recent data from the European Space Agency (ESA), which also showed that the dynamic magnetic field that protects the planet from radiation has weakened.

The ESA at a conference in Copenhagen this week presented its first high-resolution results from its three-satellite Swarm mission, which was launched in November 2013 and aimed to investigate changes in Earth’s magnetic field, which acts as a shield against solar and space radiation and moderates the climate.

Measurements taken over the past six months by Swarm satellites confirmed that Earth’s magnetic field is weakening, with dramatic declines over the Western Hemisphere. The field is produced by electrical currents generated deep within the planet’s core, and it constantly changes in strength and orientation.

Over the past two centuries, Earth’s magnetic field has weakened by 15 percent, according to scientists. Risks of a weak magnetic field include more deaths from cancer due to increased radiation, electrical grid collapse from severe solar storms, climate change and temporary ozone holes.

The data showed that Earth’s north magnetic pole — different from the geographic North Pole, which marks Earth’s rotational axis — is moving south. Since magnetic north was first located in 1831, it has wandered more than 600 miles.

Now that you mention it I believe there is a "welfare ho's, illegal immigrants and n word drug gang magnetic on the south side of chicago .

How else could you account for the high numbers of welfare ho's living on welfare generation after generation living in substandard slums on the south side of chicago raising little n word kids with no father in the house or fathers names on the birth certificate,

or so many illegal immigrates or n word drug dealers shooting up da hood killing wounding other n word people on the south side of chciago.

not a peep out of jessie " fillmypocketsfirst" jackson, obozo , al notso sharpeton da lame attorney general or anyone in a position to do nothing about the problem.

oh well another generation of dumb wellfare ho's, illegal immigrants and dumb a$$ n word drug dealers written off sent to the garbage heap of history at 103 rd street & stoney island
