Confirmed – Earth’s protective magnetic shield is weakening

The most dramatic declines are occurring over the Western Hemisphere, says European Space Agency.

These findings help validate my theories presented in both Not by Fire but by Ice and Magnetic Reversals and Evolutionary Leaps.


Just three days ago, on 19 June 2014, the European Space Agency (ESA) revealed that the strength of the earth’s magnetic field is indeed weakening.

In an announcement entitled “Swarm reveals Earth’s changing magnetism,” ESA announced that “high-resolution results from ESA’s three-satellite Swarm constellation reveals the most recent changes in the magnetic field that protects our planet.”

“Launched in November 2013, Swarm is providing unprecedented insights into the complex workings of Earth’s magnetic field, which safeguards us from the bombarding cosmic radiation and charged particles,” the announcement continues.

This is the same cosmic radiation that I refer to in Magnetic Reversals and Evolutionary Leaps. This is the same radiation that I think actually triggers those leaps.

This is the same radiation that bombards our planet during magnetic reversals. This is the same radiation that demolishes Darwin’s theories of slow, gradual evolution.

“Measurements made over the past six months confirm the general trend of the field’s weakening, with the most dramatic declines over the Western Hemisphere,” says ESA.

But in other areas, such as the southern Indian Ocean, the magnetic field has strengthened since January.

The latest measurements also confirm the movement of magnetic North towards Siberia.

The SWARM project hopes to obtain “a better understanding of why the magnetic field is weakening.”

My concern of course, is that a weakening magnetic field could indicate that we’re headed for the next geomagnetic reversal, which I fear will be catastrophic.

The new findings were presented on 19 June at the ‘Third Swarm Science Meeting’ in Copenhagen, Denmark.

  1. We already have a model of potential effects of poles switching as the sun does the same thing every 11 years. We could look at the Sun, observe activity, energy hot spots etc. and extrapolate that to what is likely to happen here on earth.

    Isn’t it funny how the Sun is so much larger yet the poles flip regularly compared to Earth’s every tens/hundreds of thousands of years. Is there an inverse relationship between mass/size and frequency of reversals?
