Earths magnetic pole is on the move, fast. And we dont know why


“The magnetic pole is moving so quickly that it has forced the world’s geomagnetism experts into a rare move,” Nature reports.

The current model was expected to be valid until 2020. But the magnetic pole began to shift so quickly, it was realised in 2018 that the model had to be fixed — now.

“They realised that it was so inaccurate that it was about to exceed the acceptable (safe) limit for navigational errors,” Nature reports.

4. The polar shift explains the climate change

Not vice versa. Weather patterns in North America are about a month off normal. The climate hasn't changed, the timing has. That is a function of the magnetic pole.

8. That would seem to be evidence that our magnetic core is not exactly spherical.
