A pole reversal, when the earth’s north and south magnetic poles start to swap places, reversing the world’s magnetic polarity, has happened before.
Scientists tracking the planets history have identified 74 of these events by studying core samples.
These are extracted from hundreds or thousands of feet down in the ground and in the thick polar ice.
A sudden shift would throw the earth’s balance out so significantly it could trigger earthquakes, tsunami on a massive scale .
Volcanic eruptions so large and widespread that the resulting ash clouds and gases could blanket the sun’s rays and trigger a new sudden ice-age.
Scientists look for evidence of previous Armageddon-style destruction by identifying “chaotic sediments” where narrow layers of earth, rock and ice record oddball events in the earth’s history in the form of bands of mud and tiny magnetically-charged fragments.
To scientists, these are clear indicators of sudden floods, ice-melt or ash deposits.
When this is found outside a long period of the cycle of freezing and melting in the earth’s history, it is an indicator of a pole shift.
Pole shifts cause a major increase in the movement of the tectonic plates, within the earth’s.
