Experts believe we're currently overdue a flip, but they're unsure when this could occur.
If a switch happens, we would be exposed to solar winds capable of punching holes into the ozone layer.
The impact could be devastating for mankind, knocking out power grids, radically changing Earth’s climate and driving up rates of cancer.

Should be, "Magnetic reversals take one thousand to 10,000 years to complete."

Nutjobs didn't even notice a thing. LOL.

Those magnetic reversals are discussed well in Wikipedia.. A short extract:

A geomagnetic reversal is a change in the Earth's magnetic field such that the positions of magnetic north and magnetic south are interchanged. The Earth's field has alternated between periods of normal polarity, in which the direction of the field was the same as the present direction, and reverse polarity, in which the field was the opposite. These periods are called chrons. The time spans of chrons are randomly distributed with most being between 0.1 and 1 million years[ with an average of 450,000 years. Most reversals are estimated to take between 1,000 and 10,000 years. The latest one, the Brunhes–Matuyama reversal, occurred 780,000 years ago. A brief complete reversal, known as the Laschamp event, occurred only 41,000 years ago during the last glacial period. That reversal lasted only about 440 years with the actual change of polarity lasting around 250 years. During this change the strength of the magnetic field dropped to 5% of its present strength. Brief disruptions that do not result in reversal are called geomagnetic excursions..[Wikipedia]

It's cold.

The U.S. Department of Commerce said the Ohio River at Cincinnati has frozen 14 times since 1874, the last two being 1977 and 1978.

The river also froze during the winters of 1904-1905, 1917-1919 and 1940.

I really think most understand but just do not want to admit it. The Republican way of the past few years has been to repeat and repeat their falsehoods until prejudiced folks accept it as truth. Admitting errors is perceived as a weakness by them.

No you give yourselves the "Ignorant" label just by what you type. If it was something meaningful or challenging that gave a rational explanation why all these 1000's of scientists are involved in some world wide conspiracy to gain funding and control the world. Including the ones in China who have passed the US now with emission pollution.

"Chinese state media said on Thursday that construction workers are en route to the future site of China’s fourth Antarctic research station, after a pit stop at one of its other bases. The new station will be a hub for climate change science"

Make you wonder why they would bother, don't you think they would be listening to Rush telling us its all a hoax. After all they are commies, they know how to control billions of people with their propaganda machine. Why not relay Rush or Beck to let them know the truth. This is something you deniers just can't handle, you can give us crap about volcanoes and pole shifts but you can never nail why all political persuasions (except extreme right wingers) see climate change as a serious problem.

Again! Massive fudging on global-warming temps
Scientist:'These shenanigans have been going on for decades'
Published: 22 hours ago
Bob Unruh About | Email | Archive Bob Unruh joined WND in 2006 after nearly three decades with the Associated Press, as well as several Upper Midwest newspapers, where he covered everything from legislative battles and sports to tornadoes and homicidal survivalists. He is also a photographer whose scenic work has been used commercially.
An independent data analyst whose work has been published by Principia Scientific, where scientists deliberate and debate, throwing out predetermined political results in favor of the truth in the data, says the global warming activists are at it again.
They’re manipulating the data.
In this case, lowering the historical temperatures for years prior to 2000. Which makes the temperatures after that look like they’ve risen. Which makes it look like global warming.
“A newly uncovered and monumental calculating error in official U.S. government climate data shows beyond doubt that climate scientists unjustifiably added a whopping one degree of phantom warming to the official ‘raw’ temperature record,” the report says.
It comes from the discovery by independent data analyst Steven Goddard, who did a study of the official U.S. temperature records used by NASA, the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration and others.
He found that for the records, when global temperatures plummeted in 1999, on the official U.S. chart, they didn’t.
Essentially, he said, the charge was revised downward by one degree for readings before 2000. But they “left post-2000 temperatures more or less intact.”
“Does this evidence prove an intentional fraud? Goddard certainly thinks it possible,” the science site analysis explains,“and only a full examination of all the files will show that, one way or the other.… The ramifications are that hundreds of billions of tax dollars have been misallocated to ‘solve’ a non-problem, all due to willful malfeasance and/or incompetence in data handling.”
The analysis continued,“Just last month (December 2013), John Beale, the senior EPA policy adviser, was convicted and jailed for defrauding taxpayers out of $1 million in salaries and expenses. Does a culture of corruption extend through departments associated with climate policy?”
“Climategate” exposes the global warming scam. Get it now at the WND Superstore.
At the CATO Institute, a separate report on 2013 temperatures noted,“Please be advised that this history has been repeatedly ‘revised’ to either make temperatures colder in the earlier years or warmer at the end. Not one ‘adjustment’ has the opposite effect, a clear contravention of logic and probability.”
Columnist Vox Day wrote at Absolute Rights that it’s just another “smoking gun in the fraud-filled field of ‘climate science.’”

It must be like drinking poison for you deniers listening to Obama's State of the Union address. More American homes with solar panels, gas powered trucking & especially the statement "Climate change is REAL and we are going to do something about it". Poor ole Bonehead speaker couldn't bring himself to clap. Because he knows the poor ole fossil fuel deniers are looking down the barrel right now and there is no where to run.

With all the racists voting re-pubic-lick-un, re-pubic-lick-uns still can't figure out how they lost to a black man, not once, but twice. re-pubic-lick-uns are percentage-wise decreasing & only hang on to power by political maneuvering & gerrymandering.
