Enigmatic Rupture in Earth’s Magnetic Field Caused New Type of Aurora, NASA Scientist Reveals
Sputnik ^ | 12/26/2019

What prompted this “massive, but localised compression”, which looked like something punched the magnetic field, is unclear. The edge of the bubble rushed towards the Earth by about 25,000 kilometres, taking just 1 minute and 45 seconds.

The researchers suggested that there might have been an unprecedented storm in the area where the solar particles sneak through our protective bubble, the magnetosphere. What caused the storm is not known.

"This motion is something that we've never seen before. This eastward and then westward and then spiralling motion is not something that we've ever seen, not something we currently understand", Briggs said.

Maybe a couple, three billion dollars of taxpayer money might shed some light on this phenomenon?

Nasa’s next question: How can we present this as a man-made phenomena that threatens all life on earth? (Thus securing 10’s of millions in dollars to keep marginally competent scientists rolling in research grants).

The shift of the magnetic north is the real cause of climate change (which is always changing).

Now this!!

Maybe the Earth farted and it caused a repercussion in the magnetic field...

This is what happens when you starve the atmosphere if CO2. (To prove me wrong, you have to first prove man-made global warming is ”real.”)

I am in awe of the Intelligence I call God to have this ‘course effect’ at this time in our evolution of the Soul, and at this time and place in space. An optimist might see it as a reprieve from our upcoming species-destroying ice age, perhaps giving us a little more time teetering at the brink of extinction. Well, that could be a pessimist view as well, I guess.

New Year’s does that to me ...

Here you go. (Note, I do NOT claim any of these steps are correct.)

Humans are warming the earth, which causes less snow, which causes earthquakes, which interferes with the earth's magnetic field, which shakes the sun, which makes humans do crazy things, such at warming the earth,...
