Warning within their story that what is causing this unexpected change isn't clear, it then reported that our planet is well overdue for another full reversal, where our planet's magnetic field reverses completely, meaning the magnetic north and south pole swap places. Intervals between the reversals are irregular, but generally happen a few times every million years.
With Earth now overdue for its' 'few times every million years' magnetic pole reversal, what exactly is the Earth's magnetic field and what does it do asks and answers the next section of the Newsweek story as excerpted below.
Earth’s magnetic field surrounds our planet, acting as an invisible force field that shields life on Earth’s surface—including crucial electrical infrastructure such as satellites and power grids—from harmful radiation from the sun. Although the geomagnetic field is at least three billion years old, according to studies of ancient rocks, its structure has shown persistent fluctuations through time, most notably including global polarity reversals which have occurred hundreds of times during its history.
Many navigation systems ranging from defence systems to smartphone apps rely on accurate knowledge of the magnetic field to determine direction, underlining the importance of understanding how and why it changes.
As Michael Snyder over at the Economic Collapse Blog had reported back in April, scientists readily admit that a sudden pole shift could potentially cause “trillions of dollars” in damage. Also warning that a sudden shift of our magnetic poles could potentially cause the frying of our electrical grid as the Newsweek story had also mentioned, as we'll explore within this ANP story, the effects of the changing geomagnetic field surrounding us will absolutely hit human beings, just as it will hit all animals as the magnetosphere weakens, with evidence explored within this story it will mess with people's very sanity. First, from Michael Snyder.:
Today, most of us take the protection provided by Earth’s magnetic field completely for granted. It is essentially a colossal force field which surrounds our planet and makes life possible. And even with such protection, a giant solar storm could still potentially hit our planet and completely fry our power grid. But as our magnetic field continues to get weaker and weaker, even much smaller solar storms will have the potential to be cataclysmic. And once the magnetic field gets weak enough, we will be facing much bigger problems. As you will see below, if enough solar radiation starts reaching our planet none of us will survive.
For starters, Earth itself is like a giant magnet. A spinning ball of liquid iron in our planet’s core generates the vast magnetic field that moves our compass needles around and directs the internal compasses of migrating birds, bats, and other animals. On top of that, ever-industrious humans have produced artificial magnetic fields with power lines, transport systems, electrical appliances, and medical equipment.
We may not be able to see, hear, feel, or taste the magnetic fields that surround us, but some may wonder whether they can still exert effects on our bodies and brains. This question becomes more pertinent, and the answers more tantalizing, as the strength of the magnetic field in question gets cranked up.(Or weakens.)
According to the World Health Organization (WHO) as was reported within a 2005 study, as societies industrialize and the technological revolution continues, there has been an unprecedented increase in the number and diversity of electromagnetic field (EMF) sources. And as their study reports, some people can be extremely sensitive to such fields, to the point that it ruins their entire lives.
With scientific evidence that with a polar shift comes a much weaker planetary magnetic field, might human beings be affected by that weakening and the magnetic disruptions to our brains? From the WHO story.:
These sources of EMF sources include video display units (VDUs) associated with computers, mobile phones and their base stations. While these devices have made our life richer, safer and easier, they have been accompanied by concerns about possible health risks due to their EMF emissions.
For some time a number of individuals have reported a variety of health problems that they relate to exposure to EMF. While some individuals report mild symptoms and react by avoiding the fields as best they can, others are so severely affected that they cease work and change their entire lifestyle. This reputed sensitivity to EMF has been generally termed “electromagnetic hypersensitivity” or EHS.
This fact sheet describes what is known about the condition and provides information for helping people with such symptoms. Information provided is based on a WHO Workshop on Electrical Hypersensitivity (Prague, Czech Republic, 2004), an international conference on EMF and non-specific health symptoms (COST244bis, 1998), a European Commission report (Bergqvist and Vogel, 1997) and recent reviews of the literature.
What is EHS?
EHS is characterized by a variety of non-specific symptoms, which afflicted individuals attribute to exposure to EMF. The symptoms most commonly experienced include dermatological symptoms (redness, tingling, and burning sensations) as well as neurasthenic and vegetative symptoms (fatigue, tiredness, concentration difficulties, dizziness, nausea, heart palpitation, and digestive disturbances). The collection of symptoms is not part of any recognized syndrome.
Experts believe we're currently overdue a flip, but they're unsure when this could occur. If a switch happens, we would be exposed to solar winds capable of punching holes into the ozone layer. The impact could be devastating for mankind, knocking out power grids, radically changing Earth’s climate and driving up rates of cancer.
‘This is serious business’, Richard Holme, Professor of Earth, Ocean and Ecological Sciences at Liverpool University told MailOnline.
‘Imagine for a moment your electrical power supply was knocked out for a few months – very little works without electricity these days.’
When will the magnetic field next flip? What happened last time it did?
The last global reversal, the Brunhes-Matuyama, occurred about 780,000 years ago, although a failed reversal, the Laschamp event, occurred around 41,000 years ago when the field temporarily reversed and rapidly switched back to its previous polarity.
Magnetic flips occur about three times per million years, which coupled with the current weakening trend of the global magnetic field by about 5 percent per century, has led to speculation that planet Earth may be headed for a reversal.
Life has clearly survived the many magnetic reversals, and indeed early humans successfully managed to live through the Laschamp event. It is unclear however how a globally changing magnetic field might impact animals with magnetoreception that they, for example, might use to navigate long distances during migration.
As we'll explore in the final section of our story below and take a look at in the first video below from videographer 'Suspicious Observers', with the polar shift, "numerous challenges to the planet's biosphere do occur and likely constitute a complex ensemble of difficulties that present the scariest possible gauntlet for life upon Earth." (ANP: Quote directly from Suspicious Observers video.)
Might the increase in mass insanity also be partially due to the massive disruption to the Earth's magnetosphere and the collapsing of the Van Allen Belt, subjecting human beings and animals to entirely new levels of radiation and magnetic disruption within our brains? As Defender Shield had reported back in December of 2017, there is a very strong link between exposure to EMF radiation and mental health issues. As we read in this abstract and hear in the 1st video below from videographer 'Suspicious Observers', major disruptions to our planet's magnetosphere will absolutely impact every living animal (and plant) upon the planet.
Recent studies have solidified the biological relevance of space weather such as solar flares, geomagnetic storms and cosmic rays. The most relevant studies concern the effects of space weather on major cardiac events such as stroke, deadly arrhythmia, pressure/heartbeat fluctuations, myocardial infarction, etc.
Considerable research on external modulation of blood pressure and heart-rate even showed significant influence in healthy patients.
Solar activity and cosmic rays also display strong correlations with adverse mental and psychological events. Cognitive diminution, emotional instability, increased anxiety, decreased hippocampal cell division and increased neuroinflammation are only a few of the mental and psychological impairments tied to severe solar activity and cosmic rays.
None of these potentially correlated modulations of biological health have been modelled under a weakened magnetospheric state, but an amplification of effects may be logically expected. It is worth considering the impact of even minor cognitive or other mental effects on animals in the relatively competitive and unforgiving natural world.
FOOD CHAIN FOUNDATIONS
Plants provide a critical foundation for the ecosystem both on land and in the oceans; it is well-established that climate change challenges both the faunal and floral life, and so climatic changes due to weakened magnetospheres should be considered.
Plants are also known to directly respond to changes in the geomagnetic field at seedling, growth and flowering stages, often adversely and would be at considerable UV risk under weakened magnetospheric states.
As even Science Times had reported within this October of 2014 story titled "Earth's Rapidly Shifting Magnetic Field Could Impact Your Health", this situation could give rise to serious health concerns because the longer Earth's magnetic field remains in a weakened state, the more radiation can get through to the surface, and most radiation exposure to life--especially the intense radiation of space--is harmful.
And while we surely won't be holding our breaths waiting for this 'few times every million years event' to happen with it completely and totally out of all human control, with our magnetic north pole definitely racing unexplainably towards Siberia and a complete pole flip already overdue and people already going nuts all across the planet while the globalists themselves prepare for the apocalypse, Steve Quayle urges us to remember the 'golden rules' with most government's: "Never let a good crisis go to waste" and "never tell the masses what lies ahead until it happens - they must not know their fate until it is upon them."
