    Just saw this on the news today.........

    Earth’s magnetic pole shifts, screws up runway at Florida airport - Yahoo! News

    Now.......anyone know why it's so cold at both the north and south poles? That's right, it's where the least amount of shielding from the Van Allen belts is at. It's also been stated that there is a good chance of an aurora borealis showing up in Florida!

    Anyone remember the last winter Olympics when in 2010 British Columbia had no snow, yet Washington DC and the east coast got slammed (as well as the fact that it's happening still)?

    If you take the poles and move them towards Russia (which they're moving at about 40 miles/year), and compare that to the freaky weather patterns we've been getting all over the planet (remember that Europe is starting to have really ugly winters right now).

    Personally? When I saw that BC didn't have snow, yet DC got slammed, I started to wonder about magnetic poles starting to shift, getting the planet ready for the Galactic Alignment that is due to happen in 2012 (Dec 21st to be exact).

    What do the rest of you think about this? Interestingly enough, you're gonna have to start adjusting your compass bearings soon, otherwise, you'll never know what direction you're going unless you use the stars and the moon.

    Imagine what would happen if a solar flare took out all our GPS satellites as well........

    what do the mean, toward russia? It is up in greenland. Is it heading east or west? It would have been more useful to say toward Canada or toward Norway.

    And why did a airport in florida have the issue. Magnetic north vs true north is mostly an issue in the Northeast.

    It's a fluctuation, not a consistent 40 mile/year linear march.

    Magnetic north shifts all the time.

    This is one of the primary reason that aviation sectional and WAC charts have 6-month lifespans.

    The poles always move. That is nothing new. However we are do for a magnetic shift.

    I think it is Palin's fault...

    She thought she might be able to see it better from her front porch if it moved to Russia...

    I bet Santa is glad he doesn't live at the Magnetic North Poll... That would be a logistics nightmare...
