The Weakening Of Earth’s Magnetic Field Has Greatly Accelerated

Earth’s magnetic field is getting significantly weaker, the magnetic north pole is shifting at an accelerating pace, and scientists readily admit that a sudden pole shift could potentially cause “trillions of dollars” in damage. 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.
But now we are being told that data collected from the SWARM satellite indicate that the rate of decay is now 5 percent per decade…

It’s well established that in modern times, the axial dipole component of Earth’s main magnetic field is decreasing by approximately 5% per century. Recently, scientists using the SWARM satellite announced that their data indicate a decay rate ten times faster, or 5% per decade.

In case you didn’t quite get that, 5 percent per decade is 10 times faster than 5 percent per century.

If the rate of decay continues at this pace, or if it speeds up, even more, we could be looking at a mass extinction event that is beyond what most people would dare to imagine.

As the magnetic field strength declines, more cosmic ray could create more clouds and we could see significant cooling? Of course, that could be the least of our problems. That raises a question, what was the magnetic fields strength at the start of the last grand minimum, at the start of the last Ice Age. Anyone know how to get an estimate?

    Reblogged this on Tallbloke's Talkshop and commented:
    Earth’s magnetic field keeps weakening at a faster rate. Should we be concerned?

      After I read this article and all the dire predictions I had to ask myself if the flipping of the earth magnetic poles has happened before? If so why are we alive? Why hasn’t the earth atmosphere and the oceans been swept away already by unchecked solar winds? I don’t mean to attack the author. Just asking questions.

    Map of predicted annual rate of change of total intensity for 2015.0-2020.0

      First thanks for the information, my knowledge is very weak in this area. What is the impact of large areas of decline and other areas of intensity? Will more cosmic rays be more prevalent over North America? Spaceweather has measured an 18% increase in CA since the beginning of 2015.

    The magnetic sun dipole also weakens.

    The effect of these changes are changes in the jet streams. The ENSO cycle will be disturbed. This will cause water vapor to fall at high latitudes.

    Proof of the disturbance of the ENSO cycle are temperature jumps in the tropical eastern Pacific.
    Circulation over North America is close to the conditions of La Niña.

    The coincidence of weakening magnetic fields of the Sun and of our Earth even for a single-short period might be a major threat for the life on Earth.

      Contrary to appearances, ionization of living cells will increase.

      Interesting list of books on the pole reversals. Thanks for sharing the list

    Present measurements of our planet’s magnetic field show it may vary from 30 µT up to 60 µT in most places on Earth with the exception of the zone of South Atlantic ‘Anomaly’ SAA which lies in the range 22 µT — 28 µT (south and central zones of Brazil, north of Argentina, Uruguay and Paraguay). In North America it lies in the range 34 µT (Florida) — 60 µT (north of Canada). It reaches 63 µT over the sea at west of New Zealand and south of Australia. The last peak of the magnetic field values happened around the yrs. 1650-1700 (during LIA) and they are continuously decaying ever since. By that time the weakest point of Earth1s magnetic field was the center of the SAA which was then placed on the western coast of Africa and its value was possibly above 33 µT.

    For those whom might be interested in analyzing the effects from the decay of Earth’s magnetic field I suggest the following paper and particularly the results shown as figures on page 11.
