What would be the result to life as we know it in the event of a "Polar Reversal"
Some have claimed we would all rapidly instantaneously be burned up and gone, and earth would then enter into yet another "Ice Age".
Some have claimed we could go off of our orbit, be drawn possibly into the sun and be no more.
Yet others have claimed that the reversal would be gradual but we could face a communications wipeout that would cripple and destroy our financial situations so we should be stocking up on all provisions now in order to survive.
What do you think?
I don't know about the others; but, definitely it's not going to be 'Into Orbit' lol. Earth has its gravity and no matter what happens to the magnetic field gravity will exist.
I am not so sure about your statement on gravity. I believe that once we leave the earth's orbital space we enter into "ZERO" gravity. Isn't this why astronaut spaces suits are weighted down? So if the earth abruptly and swiftly reverses its "Poles" is there not the possibility for man to be thrown off into space?
Man has to be in space to experience 0 gravity right ? Someone has to put them there. They aren't going to go floating from the Earths surface
So you don't think that an abrupt shifting from North to South might cause man to be thrown off into space? I hope you have lead in your pants?
Only foolish ppl will say something like what u stated
I don't consider myself foolish my friend and I am definitely not what ever your acronym ppl what ever that means refers to. I believe that anything is possible, gravity not withstanding.
By the way, I loathe and hate acronyms. People assume that others know what they mean. Not me, I don't know.
Dave, just dont line your pants with iron, you might be sucked down to the south pole when the shift happens!
I think you are confusing gravity with magnetism
I can only answer this with humor.
Get an RMA for returning a defective product.
It has happened many times before, as polar geomagnetic imprints are found all over the planet. It would be chaos.
Yeah, probably. Before all of this technology we might have escaped unscathed (except for some widespread panic as the auroras appeared across the globe), but with all of our satellites and wireless tech, I'm sure we'd be done for now.
Polar reversal has happened before and the planet is still here. I dare say that will be true if/when it happens again.

I am not asking about the effect of burning oil or spilling it in the ocean. I am looking to find out how removing oil from the ground effects the ecosystem. Imagine we drained it and did not use it or spill it if it would help put you in the mind state for this forum.The way I...

I have a 23 year old nephew who is to all appearances a healthy happy guy. He is happily married to his high school sweetheart. They both recently graduated from college, are working, (she is a nurse!) and live in Colorado. He just had surgery to remove cancer from his lymph nodes and glands. In...

I can't and I don't think anyone else can, yet many believe they can. Why is it that they believe they can fly, when it's quite impossible?In other words, many claim things that violate the physical laws of the universe, like defying gravity and flying. No one has actually claimed they can fly, but...

I ask because this was brought to my attention...The moon does not spin, as it simply orbits around the Earth. There is nothing pulling on its axis to cause it to spin. So say we did not have a moon, would the Earth then not spin? Wouldn't this cause steady climate all over the world and no storms?...
