Africa PHENOMENON threatens to FLIP Earth's magnetic field, taking the poles with it
Express.co.uk ^ | Wednesday, March 7, 2018 | Sakura Evans

New research shows the most significant weakening is happening under Africa which has been dubbed the 'South Atlantic Anomaly' (SAA).

As well as giving us our north and south poles, the magnetic field blankets the Earth, protecting it from solar winds and cosmic radiation.

The forcefield has weakened significantly over the past 160 years and scientists now suggest it could be in the process of flipping.

Such a change would be a switch in magnetic polarity and would see compasses point south rather than north.

Scientists believe such an occurrence has actually happened several times in the history of our planet, transpiring roughly every 200,000 to 300,000 years.

Approximately 40,000 years ago, the field is said to have attempted to switch before snapping back into place.

The SAA, which stretches all the way from Zimbabwe to Chile, is now of particular interest to scientists because it has weakened dramatically over the last 160 years...

A new study from the University of Rochester, published... data from sites in southern Africa and compiled a record of Earth's magnetic field strength over many centuries.

They used ancient African clay remnants dating back to the early and late Iron Ages to study past magnetic fields using "archaeomagnetism."

One of the lead researchers, John Tarduno, explained: "When you burn clay at very high temperatures, you actually stabilise the magnetic minerals, and when they cool from these very high temperatures, they lock in a record of the earth's magnetic field."

"archaeomagnetism.""

I had no idea there was a field of study devoted to Barbra Streisand and Madonna.

Good to see you back, I’ve always appreciated your posts.

BTW, you once did an article on blond blue eyed horsemen from North Africa. I was thinking about it a few months ago, but couldn’t find it. Any chance you might repost?

Welcome back.

I think Congress should p[ass a law against any flipping.

Just as white is the new black, south will be the new north.

Really, FReepers, get with the program!

Can we just ship our heavy stuff south for awhile, let it balance out?

Watch, one of Lee sisters or Al Green will suggest it.

I'm sure I don't remember that, but let's have a look... the search terms would be Berber blue eye horsemen.... the only search hit (using the modifier site:freerepublic.com) yields a topic on the so-called Sea Peoples that largely contained nonsense (and was of course something I didn't post, he bragged).

But what about Guam?
Why doesn’t anyone care about Guam?
It could flip, too!

“The forcefield has weakened significantly over the past 160 years”

Has to be aliens monkeying with their forcefield again - that or some US President ...
