Earth Is Tipping Because of Climate Change

How about the kind that hits hollywood stars due toi excessive makeup over the years?

The poles have always moved around and the entire earths magnetic field flips and has flipped repeatedly over past millions of years.

No biggie.

Climate changed linked to outbreaks of self-induced hysteria, fear-mongering, gross hypocrisy, halitosis, knee warts and remakes of bad movies.

... and that, by the way, does not mean the the world is "tipping". It is doing no such thing.

The Earth is doing a googly!

Yep. There's been a noticeable weakening of the magnetic field in the southern hemisphere. Scientists just don't know if it's part of the normal fluctuations in the field or if the poles are going to flip.

It's a good thing that we're mostly beyond magnetic compasses, now. Just calculating the deviation is a nuisance when it moves so fast.

Kind'a gives one a greater appreciation for all the people who crossed the oceans with little more than their knowledge of the sun, moon and stars. And in many cases doing so with no other tools to help in navigating.

The Polynesians were the greatest navigators ever with the Norse as close seconds.

I firmly agree with that assessment.

The 'poles' according to what? The crust carries a magnetic signature of the magma when it left the core rather than what magnetic field it was passing through just before it cooled. The oceanic crust is 200M years old, the Continental Crust has a few spots that go back almost 4B years. The core has not changed it's alignment to the sun, let alone done complete flips. Magma was free to float around as a liquid for billions of years before any of it cooled, the size and speed of rotation would have made the earth a big centrifuge where the liquid rock as sorting itself by density as well as magnetic orientation. Magma coming from the core should carry that orientation while the magma that will return to the core would lose any magnetism it carried.


There are 40,000 miles of oceanic rifts that are spreading to any changes it where the continents are going is based in the spreading rather and that is based in the temp of the rising magma, hotter or cooler is the only change it ever makes





If the core has a stable spin and only the crust portion is wobbly then the wobble was introduced after the core had a stable spin(without a doubt). The moon is large enough to create a wobble and modern astronomy software could figure out what the orbits would have hat to have been like.

I would even suggest a large portion of the moon's metal core left the moon and rained down on the earth in a way that saw one location get about 90 of all the material in one event and by the time that heavy material sank to the core the wobble had been established. If the core is also wobbling then it will never recover

I know that this is a tough one.

The Earth, you see is a big ball, spinning on an axis that does not change very much hence a lack of wobble (and a good thing, too)

The magnetic field, though, moves about. The Earth does not wobble about,just the electromagnetic field that it generates.
