The magnetic pole migration REVERSED? Now stalled...

[[new content is inserted at the top of this post - apologies for the randomness, but the solar cycle is throwing off all sort of flare activity - and everyone in this fringe area of the science is very excitable. An X-class flare yesterday has added to the flap... I will tidy it up when things settle back ]]

01Jan23 - Wake up time again... new year disaster looms... here comes an Extinction Level Event that has been forecast for over a year and supported by observation.

After 3 years of relentless project fear, it's easy to become disaster weary. But the redoubtable Gene Beards again warns about the magnesic pole reversal and the accompanying contradictions of the farming crisis.

25Aug23 - still no explanation of the migration pause. 

Gene Goes all in with calamity mode and notes food production continues to be compromised; China is in deepening trouble as governments continue to distract with all manner of irrelevance...

 19Aug23 - Brief hiatus...

Once again, the Magnetic north pole has not moved since the last position check. Gene has checked to ensure that the sensor system is active and measuring. Again there is no simple explanation or obvious external influence.

One interesting piece of news is that the sun is affecting cloud formation on Neptune. This is discussed in another post on this blog and provides an another challenge to those who are determined to dismiss the effect of solar radiation on the mechanisms of earthly climate change. Moreover, Neptune is our solar system's farthest major planet and receives only 0.1% of the sunlight Earth receives. 

Go figure..? And once again we have to be aware that the subtlety of climate change may be far too fickle to be hung on a simplisditic hook such as the combustion of fossil fuel.


An X-Class flare occured...

The consensus that some 95% of annual CO2 released into the atmosphere (google et al) is (from natural sources) is broadly agreed. I also see bets are now being hedged by increased reference to water vapour in reply to some AI enquiries. Which may help to obfuscate and further remind us we do not definitively know what actually goes on. Hence my underlying concern that we should not bet the famr on "carbon".

It seems there are many interest factions that actively do not want a definite answer in case pet theories are threatened with deeper understanding.  Given the hyperbole that has been whipped up around "carbon" it's not surprising that there some may want re-balance that hysteria. So here is a recent note of solar flare activity from - 

Solar storms are caused by the release of energy from the Sun's magnetic  field. These storms can send a stream of charged particles into the  Earth's atmosphere. These particles can interact with water vapour in the  atmosphere, and this interaction can lead to the formation of clouds  and precipitation.   So the consensus remains that some 93-5% of annual CO2 released into the atmosphere (google et al) is (from natural sources. I also note that bets are being hedged by increased reference to water vapour in reply to some AI enquiries. Which may help obfuscate, and further reminds us we do not definitively know what actually goes on - the recurring theme.

And then we are also onto the fringes of jetstreams... the science is complicated.

Overall plot summary: The magnetic north pole migration stalled, reversed a bit - then continued ... and Gene Beards' postulated 40 degree trip/trigger point for a full polar reversal has been reached.

What next? Nobody Knows!
Sorry folks,there is no precedent for what is going one with earth's molton core. stay tuned...

06Aug23 - and then it just stopped dead! 

But fear not, Bill Gates to the rescue...
The European Union (EU) has thrown its support behind Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates’ radical plans “fight global warming” by blocking light from the Sun to lower the temperature on Earth.

EU Backs Bill Gates' Plan to 'Fight Global Warming' by Blocking the Sun - Slay News

The EU will join an international globalist effort to examine the effectiveness of the plan.

Several nations’ governments are joining unelected bureaucratic agencies to determine whether a large-scale intervention such as deflecting the Sun’s rays or changing the Earth’s weather patterns are viable options for “fighting climate change.”

As Slay News has previously reported, Bill Gates has long been advocating for the plan to fight “global warming” using experimental geoengineering to block the Sun.

Those chemtrail conspiracists eh? What are tehy like...

Brief recap on the boiled down state of climate change:

"Carbon" climate science is an extrapolation of contrivance (what we measure) coincidence (when we measure) and hypothesis (what we imagine we measure). Paul McKenna, Derren Brown and David Blaine would be in their elements.
Climate change obviously exists - but we do not obviously understand the mechanisms and their weightings. According to Google BARD AI, and this is
prof Ian Plimer's gotcha:

"The proportion of naturally occurring CO2 in the atmosphere each year is about 95%. The remaining 5% is from human activities, such as burning fossil fuels and deforestation."

The Carboncultists have a magnificently obtuse resposne 

04Aug23 - and now it just stopped dead!  Play the video...

But somewhat disconcertingly, this has all been happening just as...

And here is an excellent backgrounder from the British Geological Survey:
31jul23 that the wheels are properly coming off the net zero narrative, it is time to remember that channel 4 produced a definitive documentary that debunked popular carbon-based climate mythology in 2007... You will watch this, and be amazed that we have been so completely misled for so long.

Also let's note that Arctic Sea Ice not recovering in winter? Is it further confirmation that the fanatical focus on carbon has been deflecting attention from potentially more important factors affecting the climate? Main takeaway from this story is that the scientists don't actually understand what's going on, suggesting that they have still not taken all the operational factors into account.

30jul23 regularly updated
First a brief recap on the basics from a popular mechanics article in 2022 is due...
Earth’s magnetic field is generated by molten iron in its outer core. The flow of this liquid iron can influence the location of the planet’s magnetic poles. While poles have drifted and even swapped places numerous times over the course of Earth’s long history, what’s different about this recent shift is how quickly it’s happening. From 1999 to 2005, Earth’s magnetic north pole went from shifting nine miles at most each year to as much as 37 miles in a year."

Now the latest from Gene Beards discussing the interpretation and relevance of historic data..

21jul23 ... 

Gene Beards bangs on about the pole migration going as predicted, and the fact that it seems to be overlooked. He then correlates polar migration with temperature and magnetic intensity.


 Gene revisits the contentious Arctic sea ice meaurements...


 In which Gene explains glacial and interglacial events.



In which Gene Beards continues to spread gloom and despondancy by piling on the agony of real happening solar events and the return of a glacial period. These are all measureable events, not imaginery hypotheses. So this will not be another Gore/Thunberg/IPCC prediction dragged out over years while we forget what they said... we can watch and measure this process happening in almost "real time".

Google BARD contributes... we asked: "is the heliosphere being weakened by the migration of the magnetic pole and reduced solar activity..?

BARD responded "... Yes, the heliosphere is being weakened by the migration of the magnetic pole and reduced solar activity. The heliosphere is the region of space that is dominated by the Sun's magnetic field. It extends out to about 100 astronomical units (AU), which is about the distance of Pluto from the Sun.

The magnetic pole of the Sun migrates over time. This is due to the fact that the Sun's magnetic field is generated by the movement of plasma in the Sun's interior. The plasma flows in loops, and the loops twist and turn as they move. This twisting and turning causes the magnetic field to change direction.

The migration of the magnetic pole can weaken the heliosphere. This is because the magnetic field of the Sun is what protects the Earth from harmful solar radiation. When the magnetic field is weak, more solar radiation can reach the Earth.

Reduced solar activity can also weaken the heliosphere. Solar activity is the level of activity on the Sun. It includes things like sunspots, solar flares, and coronal mass ejections (CMEs). CMEs are large clouds of plasma that are ejected from the Sun. They can travel at speeds of up to 1,000 kilometers per second.

CMEs can damage the Earth's atmosphere and disrupt telecommunications. They can also cause power outages. When solar activity is reduced, there are fewer CMEs, which means that the Earth is less likely to be affected by them.

The weakening of the heliosphere is a concern because it could make the Earth more vulnerable to harmful solar radiation. This could have a negative impact on human health and the environment.

However, it is important to note that the weakening of the heliosphere is a gradual process. It is not something that is going to happen overnight. We have time to study the issue and to develop ways to protect the Earth from harmful solar radiation..."

... or be like Elon Musk and bugger off to a shielded biodome encampment on Mars..? Cleaarly the Martian environment is not conducive to human habitation, but at least that way Elon gets to jettison 8 billion increasingly desperate folks on an increasingly hostile planet earth, that are surplus to requirements, that he doesn't need to run his colony/ empire on Mars.


Past the 40 degree mark, and a look at jet streams...

Gene continues to monger doom. And this installment features the shrinking heliosphere, cosmic ray incursion, jetstreams and a looming glacial period? And still no one has managed to (adequately) explain the mechanism that causes themagnetic pole migration happen...


Gene reports 3m extra square kilometers of Arctic Ice ... but don't expect CO2 disciples to notice and report, since this does not fit the sermon. He's following the money and sticking to his guns...

** 13jul23 update - Gene confesses a misread of teh graph - it's just 1m sq km see


The pole has stopped moving again. As usual, we have no idea why and can only speculate... it a point od "hysteresis"? the main variable remains the solar dynamo geomagnetic activity of cycle 25 - and its action on the magnetosphere. But "nobody knows"....

26jun23 regularly updated 

Today's video update instalment includes a useful round up and focus on cosmic ray incursion.
Google BARD cautiously contributes ...

".... Yes, the magnetosphere is weakening as a result of the unusually rapid magnetic north pole migration. The magnetic north pole is currently moving about 50 kilometers per year, which is much faster than the average rate of 10 kilometers per year. This rapid migration is causing the magnetosphere to weaken and shrink, which is allowing more high-energy cosmic particles to enter Earth's atmosphere.

The increased exposure to cosmic rays could have a number of negative consequences, including:

  • Increased risk of cancer
  • Damage to DNA
  • Impairment of immune function
  • Disruption of electrical systems

However, it is important to note that the weakening of the magnetosphere is a gradual process, and it is not clear how long it will take for the negative consequences to become apparent.

In addition to the rapid migration of the magnetic north pole, there are a number of other factors that are contributing to the weakening of the magnetosphere, including:

  • The cooling of Earth's core
  • The changing composition of Earth's mantle
  • The impact of solar activity

The weakening of the magnetosphere is a complex issue, and scientists are still working to understand the full implications. However, it is clear that this is a trend that we need to be aware of, and we need to take steps to mitigate the potential risks.

More research is needed to determine the extent to which the weakening of the Earth's magnetosphere is contributing to the increasing cosmic ray intensity. However, it is a possibility that this is a factor, and it is something that scientists are monitoring...."


Gene Beards - "Mr Pole Shift" - continues to extrapolate the questions around the unprecedented migration of the magnetic north pole. Today, he homes in on the potential collapse of the magnetosphere as part of the Milankovitch cycle that is involved in the process of glaciation.  But we are already suffering from "catastrophe exhaustion" and being served up various distractions that seem to have been designed by various psyops operations to create an easily manipulated and misdirected population.

A century ago, Serbian scientist Milutin Milankovitch hypothesized the long-term, collective effects of changes in Earth's position relative to the Sun are a strong driver of Earth's long-term climate, and are responsible for triggering the beginning and end of glaciation periods (Ice Ages).

It is incredible that poor old Gene is not being taken seriously, when the hysterical Swedish soothsayer is taken seriously by world leaders, although she cannot produce any solid evidence to support the hypothesis that the planet is doomed by anthropogenic climate change. Greta deleted the embarrassing tweet, but don't worry, the world had already taken a copy.
So can we do doing anything about this pole shift? Obviously not by direct intervention - even with Bruce Willis flying a Musk spaceship into the sun to try and nudge the dynamo that drives sunspot activity. 

But we can start by trying to learn more about the basic science. NASA and others have been quietly building the resources to monitor the sun - the Parker Probe being especially pertinent, and NASA have recently started to acknowledge the tidal effects of the planets which were only tentatively noted for the first time in 2015.

The Parker Solar Probe is still in its early stages of operation, but it has already made some groundbreaking discoveries about the sun. These discoveries are helping us to better understand the sun and its effects on Earth. Once again, we remind you that there is no other source of heat energy in the solar system, so the reluctance of "Carbon cult" to acknowledge the need to pay much closer attention to the demonstrably measurable rather than fixate on the hypothetically possible, seems like a good idea.

Here are some of the specific findings that NASA has reported about the tidal effects of the planets:
  •     The planets' gravity can cause the sun's atmosphere to bulge out by up to 100,000 miles.
  •     The tidal bulges can affect the way the solar wind flows, causing it to be more turbulent and erratic.
  •     The tidal bulges can also cause the sun's magnetic field to become more complex, leading to the formation of solar flares and coronal mass ejections.

... Gene Beards ponders the loss of the Martian atmosphere
as a result of its magentosphere loss


Gene Beards - the ultimate Pole Shift observer - excitedly delves into more of the possible consequences of additional cosmic "bombardment" getting through to the planet's surface by dint of the reducing magnetosphere shield.


Our redoubtable polar shift guru - Gene Beards is facing up to a moment of "be careful what you wish for". Although this is more a case of be "careful what you predict"

The latest results of the positional track for the magnetic North pole are in, and it may be time to search out the tin foil hats... but there is some discrepancy between "authorities" so keep an eye on Gene's latest uploads.
Commentary from Google BARD....

"As of June 18, 2023, the current position of the magnetic north pole is 86.400°N 156.786°E. It has moved approximately 27.3 miles (44 km) in the past year. The magnetic north pole is constantly moving, and its speed has been increasing in recent years. This is due to changes in the Earth's core, which is where the magnetic field originates. The Earth's magnetic field is generated by the movement of molten iron in the core. As the iron moves, it creates an electric current, which in turn generates a magnetic field. The Earth's magnetic field is constantly changing, and its poles can flip over time. The last time the Earth's magnetic poles flipped was about 780,000 years ago.

The movement of the magnetic north pole is a concern for navigation systems, such as compasses. Compasses work by aligning themselves with the Earth's magnetic field. However, if the magnetic north pole moves too far, compasses will no longer be accurate. This is why the World Magnetic Model is updated every five years. The World Magnetic Model is a mathematical model of the Earth's magnetic field. It is used to calibrate compasses and other navigation systems.

The movement of the magnetic north pole is a natural process, but it is also a concern for scientists. The rapid movement of the magnetic north pole could be a sign that the Earth's magnetic field is weakening. A weak magnetic field could make the Earth more vulnerable to solar storms. Solar storms are powerful outbursts of energy from the sun.
They can cause power outages, damage satellites, and interfere with radio communications.

I used a variety of sources for my information, including:

    The National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI)
    The World Magnetic Model
    The Geological Survey of Canada
    The Wikipedia article on the North Magnetic Pole
    Scientific journals and articles

I also consulted with a number of experts in the field of geophysics....W"


Gene "Cassandra" Beards continues to follow the migration of Magnetic North and is quite unrepentant when challenged...


Latest! Gene reminds us that his predictions are still being proved correct, so strap in and hold tight... remember that the magnetosphere is what stops the solar wind stripping the atmosphere - as happened on Mars . There are no "Bruce Willis" rescue missions possible to restore a depleted magnetosphere - it will be terminal for life on earth.

NASA begs to differ

"... We’ll examine a number of proposed hypotheses regarding the effects of changes in Earth’s magnetic field on climate. We’ll also discuss physics-based reasons why changes in the magnetic field can’t impact climate...."

Like so many other misdirections, this misses the point that climate is a confection of many factors, and we cherry-pick our fads at great risk to objective science. There are many memes doing the rounds that list the many wild predictions of climate doom over the past 50 years that have failed to materialise. (Remember the disappearing Ozone layer ?)

An acknowledgements that climate is more than CO2 leads into the precarious way that CO2 has become the chosen bogey of global warming, and those making their living from CO2 fear - or using it to excuse taxation and exert population control, do not want to examine and debate the whole story of climate.

Various efforts to get a debate going to explore each pro/contra hypothesis and produce evidence have been made - especially by David Siegel - but there is presently no money to be made by admitting that the CO2 contributed by human activity (anthropogenic) is not the critical problem it is made out to be.

The big picture...

01FEB 2023

Our very own magnetic pole guru, Gene Beards is jumping around calling "told you so!" for all he's worth, since the measured location of the magnetic north pole has stopped its regular migration, just as it approached the 40 degree "flip" marker, and may now be reversing up.

This is an esoteric subject that is not going to grab the attention of most people - especially at times like thee when three is no shortage of distraction, by stay tuned.

But don't panic yet - as the wonderful Sabine Hossenfelder covers this story in her weekly science news update:
