A shift at the South Pole started a chain reaction of large quakes this week, August 12, 2013.

6.1  Paita, Peru

5.7  Pacific-Antarctic Ridge

6.6  Mutis, Colombia (South of Panama)

5.3  Xochistlahuaca, Mexico

These quakes are occurring along active volcanic zones, so as the Earth continues to shake, watch for an increase in volcanic eruptions in these areas.


Something Big Is Happening On The Sun

Within the next two or three months, the Sun’s magnetic north and south poles will flip. Don’t worry – it won’t end time or destroy the Earth … the reversal of the Sun’s magnetic poles is a big event, but it happens every 11 years.

The coming reversal will mark the midpoint of the current Solar Cycle 24, and half of “Solar Max'”will be behind us, but half is yet to come.

Trickling Down To Earth

During polar field reversals, the Sun’s polar magnetic fields weaken, they then go to zero, and emerge again with the opposite polarity. This is a regular part of the solar cycle, and actually, this happens on all the planets. When the Earth’s magnetic poles reverse, the same thing happens to us (just not as hot). No human has ever been alive when the Earth’s poles have flipped, but we can learn about this process by studying the Sun.

The Earth’s magnetic field reverses like the Sun’s, but we have much to learn about this phenomenon.

As the Earth orbits the Sun, we are exposed to its vacillating radiation and magnetism coming from its surface, and this stirs up “stormy space weather” around our planet that trickles down as climate change and the increase in natural disasters.

This is what we are witnessing today.

A Big Deal

A reversal of the Sun’s magnetic field is a very big deal. The Sun’s magnetic influence extends billions of kilometers beyond Pluto, and changes to the Sun’s polarity ripples all the way out into interstellar space. These ripples influence every planet in our solar system.

Get Ready For The Flip

The Sun’s north pole has already changed polarity, and the south pole will soon catch up. Soon, however, both poles will be reversed, and the second half of Solar Max will be underway.

The Sun’s two hemispheres are out of synch right now, but when they finally flip, the worst will be over. In time, the Sun’s magnetic field will reach a new equilibrium, but for us, here on Earth, we’ll have another 5 1/2 years of the Sun’s super warmingkeep your sunglasses handy.


Unusual Winter Weather Persists In The South

May 2, 2013 winter storm

Temperatures fell over 30 degrees in numerous Midwestern and Southern US states when an unseasonable May storm dropped more than a foot of snow across the central Plains  and the upper Midwest on May 2, 2013. The winter storm dumped about 18 inches of snow across parts of northern Wisconsin, and more than 15 inches fell in southern Minnesota, according to the National Weather Service.

Trace amounts of snow fell in the panhandles of Texas and Oklahoma, and more than 10 inches of rain fell in parts of Mississippi and Alabama.

Just A Freak Storm Or Evidence Of A Pole Shift?

This strong winter storm – in May – is no accident or freaky coincidence because anything that happens on the Earth, happens for a reason. Freaky storms just don’t appear – something triggers them.

Pole Shifts Are Speeding Up

The Earth’s North and South Magnetic Poles

The NOAA National Geophysical Data Center maintains a data set of annual magnetic north pole coordinates going back to the year 1590. After studying 420 years of north magnetic pole position data, NOAA configured that the degree of the magnetic pole shift over the past 10 to 20 years has sped up substantially[i].

The pole shifts, both the magnetic poles and the geographic poles, have remained at 400-year record highs during the 21st Century, and the cumulative effect is now beginning to cause real-world issues. At the current rate of polar wandering, there is little doubt that this will result in direct effects all over the planet in the years ahead. Navigational charts and maps will need to be constantly adjusted, and GPS navigation will be impacted, as will most modern technology.

A Mirror Image

On all of the terrestrial planets in our solar system, the magnetic poles and the geographic poles mirror one another. In other words, the poles stick close together. So, if the magnetic poles wander and shift, the geographic poles follow.

A shift at the North Pole, no matter how small a shift, will have a trickle-down effect all over the planet. This “shift” creates changes in global climate patterns, shifts in the Jet Stream, relocates the ocean currents, and creates an increase in earthquakes, volcanoes, violent storms, wildfires, and tsunamis.

So, this May winter storm was no freak accident. We witnessed an Earth “shift.”
