Could you live without your Smartphone, internet, Netflix, your Car, or pretty much anything that needs electricity? Could you live without being able to flush your toilet? Well, some scientists say we may need to start preparing for what will happen after the Earth’s poles finish shifting…
The Earth’s poles are not permanently stable. Roughly every 200,000 years the poles reverse making the North Pole the south and vise versa which has happened hundreds of times in the past. This hasn’t happened in over 800,000 years so we are long overdue for a pole reversal.
It was only discovered about 100 years ago that our planet makes its own magnetic field. We all know that the Earth has 2 poles, the north and the south. This field is strongest at the poles and is what makes a compass work.
Now as for what is at the center of the Earth’s Core, Geologists say that Earth’s core is made of Iron and is resting inside the a temperature of 6,000 degrees Fahrenheit, which is the same as the sun.
So scientists think the Iron stays hard because of the constant pressure of the gravity pressing on it. So if this iron core starts to move or shift around, it then starts to shift the magnetic field of the Earth which is what is happening now…
What do you think of this phenomenon? Do you think it will really happen and when? How would you prepare for such a thing?
