Just HOW is the postman going to get my letter to Santa if he keeps moving? I’m really getting sick of not getting my pony. I’ll give him one more chance and then I’ll show him naughty.

Earth has been through numerous magnetic polarity reversals. I hope that is not what is going on right now.

The geologic record shows that the poles periodically ‘flip’ over a period of time. Appears to be happening again.

This could be a sign that the poles are going to switch in the next 100 years or sooner. This apparently happens every few hundred thousand years or so. It could cause some issues worse than just our compasses being screwed up for up to a couple hundred years.

"Whatever the actual explanation is, it’s Trump’s fault."

It's all that steel fencing he wants to put on the border.

"...but I’m surprised. In my youth it was in central Canada. Now near Siberia? That’s a big move!"

Maybe it got tired of Justin Trudeau, and decided to leave.

If it didn’t bother the dinosaurs, why should it bother us?

The Russians did it!

Special counsel Mueller needs to investigate this conspiracy immediately!

Rotate iron inside a magnetic field to generate electricity.

Run electricity around an iron core to generate a magnetic field.

pehaps that large ball of iron rotating and moving through the sun's fields creates our magnetic field, and the poles of it.

The earth is rotaing and moving through the sun's field continuously, and the sun's field may change, depending on who knows what, thus the earth's fields are affected.

My story and i;s sticking to it. :-)

Maybe the magnetic field is just so happy Donald Trump is president that it just can’t contain itself.

Whatever happens it can’t be as bad as Enya charting in Billboards top 10.

I have been moving the north pole around with the magnet I installed on my last trip up north.
