Reasons why the Magnetic North Pole is moving!?

The main reason is that the poles have been normally moving for centuries and flipping about every fifty thousand years. But the last flip was about one hunred & fifty thousand years ago. This all in accordance with the Geologists using modern science. So we are due for another flip.

But it could be human caused? How about all of those MRIs that abound in every hospital? Every time more than one is operating, the heavy magnetic fields output from them disrupts the earth's natural magnetic fields.
Another theory is that all of those steel vehicles driving around the world are disrupting the natural magnetic fields...

Now if you believe either one or both theories presented, I have some cheap land in southern Louisiana that is hurricane free.


Note: Hurricanes are free to you at no cost... We use them for urban renewal

The north magnetic pole is heading for Russia. They are going to hold it hostage until the rest of the world pays to use it.

We (Canadians) have allowed everyone to use it for free.

I think you are reading too many Clive Cussler novels.

I thought Al Gore had it moved to help justify Global Warming. Oh. I mean climate change.

By the way, I'm selling carbon credits half off the rest of the month.

Who the heck needs the stinking magnetic pole anyway - don't we all have chart plotters?

I'm not worried. I've already flipped my refrigerator upside down so that the magnets will work.

Isn't that one of the signs of the "End of Day"?
