Earth’s Magnetic Field Is Going To Flip, Here’s How We Know


In 1600, William Gilbert published a paper
detailing how Earth behaves as a giant magnet. That seems like a long time ago, but in geologic
time, that’s nothing. It’s taken hundreds of years to understand
how Earth’s magnetic field works… but now that we do, scientists are trying to find
hints from Earth’s history that might reveal the future of this ever-changing invisible
field all around us. Specifically, archaeologists are studying
the handles of ancient pottery. Yeah. But before I can explain it, we have to get
to how the field affects you. Scientists believe Earth’s magnetic field
is generated by the spinning of the Earth’s core. Our planet’s magnetic field is super important,
as it blocks harmful rays emanating out of the sun from hitting us on the ground, destroying
the possibility of life as we know it. No big deal. It’s always around us, and it strengthens
and weakens over time — sometimes, it even flips. If it were to flip, the magnetic north pole
would become the south, and suddenly all magnetic compasses in the world would be backwards. Everything else would be fine though. It’s not like it would turn off and back
on. NASA knows a magnetic field flip happens about
every two to three hundred-thousand years. We know the magnetic field has flipped, because
there’s evidence in the geologic record. Scientists pulled lava from the Mid-Atlantic
Ridge, where two tectonic plates meet. The ridge is spreading, giving easy access
to very old, cooled lava flows. Minerals embedded in the lava are sensitive
to Earth’s magnetic field as the lava cools, so, by collecting samples of lava, called
“cores,” and analyzing the rock… I think you see where this is going… It reveals a record of Earth’s magnetic
field over hundreds of thousands of years. This shows the last “major field flip was
about 780,000 years ago.” The problem is, cooling lava rock can’t
be precisely dated… Lava rocks don’t have timecodes or calendar
reminders detailing when they oozed and then cooled. Geologic timescales can encompass thousands
of years at a time, meaning we know this lava cooled within a few millennia of whatever… So, while these rocks can give us an ancient
picture of the magnetic field, imagine a pictures that is really zoomed out, or blurry! We definitely would need a better image to
fully understand whats happening. Now, a paper published in the Proceedings
of the National Academy of Sciences in February 2017, found a way to enhance this hypothetical
image by using ancient pottery. Clay is also subject to the same Earth’s
magnetic field record keeping, but the dates are far more precise. So, by analyzing the clay in 67 jar handles
from the Iron Age kingdom of Judah, archaeologists have found evidence of the magnetic field
strength rising and falling over the 600 years preceding 200 BCE! All from jar handles made of clay! The results were so clear, they could map
the field picture down to a span of give or take 15 years. Imagine how much clearer a 15 year picture
is compared to a 1000 year picture from geologic time! It looks like Earth’s magnetic field strength
was super high in the 8th century BCE, then weakened from the 6th to 2nd century BCE. The kicker for making this picture so clear,
was the precise dating on the jar handle because of royal stamps present on the handles of
these 67 jars. . Similar to how writing technology has gotten
better since the Sumerians in 3000 BCE; over time, stamp technology has changed… allowing
the archaeologists to give atmospheric and cosmological scientists a leg up in studying
magnetic fields by precisely dating when things changed, and of, by proxy, giving physicists
studying the interior movement of the Earth a little bit of help too. A magnetic field flip is coming! Exact magnetic north has moved more than 600
miles further north since it was first pegged in the early 19th century, first at about
10 miles per year , and now closer to 40 miles per year! On top of that, the field has lost “10 percent
of its strength over the last two centuries” This causes more vibrant aurora, but don’t
fret. The field continues to shield the surface
of the planet from harmful charged particles, and has the thick atmosphere to catch any
that may eek through. Long story short, go take a pottery class. You might help scientists thousands of years
in the future! We can’t do episodes like this without our

  • I got sick of typing "we were spun off of Discovery so we couldn't be DNews anymore" so I'm copying what the Seeker account wrote on our pluto video from last week… "We joined a brand new company called Group Nine Media, [and] we're teaming up with NowThis, Thrillist, and The Dodo. Together, we’re here to tell incredible stories, and make stuff that matters.

    If you’ve got any questions, or just want to say hi, please stop by our subreddit. It’s a little easier to answer there.

    <3 you all.

  • Really this will happen in 12k years no biggy

  • no, the magnetic field is going to remain the same, it's the Earth that is going to flip.

  • Africa is the largest continent why is it same size as America just asking

  • This is an outright lie, in regards to it having no danger for humans, because when the Magnetopause shield is eclipsed by the Sun's harmful rays, the radiation can cause harmful damage to us. Anyone heard of skin cancer, solar burns, etc? Stop with
    the lies, and just tell the truth. We can take protective action, if we know the truth, but expose ourselves to damage, if you keep saying there is nothing to fear of the extra rays. They Will hurt us, you misrepresenting dolt.

  • U know nothing about the earth! No one does! Like u say it’s millions of years old. How can u prove that? There is no way anyone can. Time has been record since the beginning of time. But no one knows where to look. It’s not millions of years like the lies we are told! And we believe that shit!

  • I don't understand how 2 to 3k years old pottery is of any help for an event that takes place every few hundred thousand years

  • Did bird's survive this, did the fly the wrong way ??

  • This clip is misleading.. When a MAGNETIC POLE SHIFT
    occurs, The Earth's magnetic poles reverse The whole
    planet will not shift and roll over like the the title might
    suggest….

    A pole reversal will effect all GPS and compass readings
    on all aircraft and shipping operations, and will need to be
    adjusted to accommodate the changes.. We will not feel
    a thing unless we are aboard and aircraft that gets lost
    and must be flown manually and without the benefit of
    GPS or a compass.. Under those conditions some planes
    may crash as a result of a magnetic pole shift…..

  • Doesn't it talk about this on the Bible in the last book "Revelations"?

  • who is "WE" ?

  • hey.. you guys tell it right.. I must see more…

  • So since the north of the campus points to the north doesn’t that mean what’s in the actual north is the south magnetic pole?

  • I thought the magnetic poles flipping could possibly cause a wipe out of a lot of humans

  • Paleo magnetic measurement – pretty imprecise science.

  • If it flips, possible rapture?

  • What if the Sun and moon were the producer of the magnetics on Earth?
    Research flat earth
    God Bless You!

  • So what? The magnetic compass is overrated, and it will soon be useless

  • What if the potter was facing the other way when he made the pot?

  • A magnetic flip, as you described, will take thousands of years.

  • disappointed me a bit, you dont really explain any of the science behind it.

  • There is a big difference between ‘shift’ & ‘flip’ ~ which is it?

  • What about the fact the continents are moving? Where does the pole shift come in on this?

  • How pyramids were really built: Gravity was not the same as it is now post-flood or deluge compared to pre-flood or deluge so things were much lighter i.e. megalithic structures etc. The earth once had and will again have many electromagnetic poles not just two as pointed out by Peter Driscoll. This was the case 5,000 years ago, nowhere near millions of years ago. Earth was once surrounded by water because of these multi-magnetic polarity mechanisms which means what we call the periodic table of elements worked differently which explains the strange anomalies in the pottery polarities. The crystalline particles in ocean water or firmament in the thermosphere protected the earth from cosmic radiation which explains human longevity pre-flood and the periodic table of elements in relation to antediluvian technology of the Arcons.

  • The ego of a scientist is so overwhelming, it is amazing they can learn anything. Most of the latest things scientists say has become suspicious. While historically, some basic things are easier to accept. Most of what I hear today is fear-mongering.

  • They said the world is ending on April 18, 2018

  • This is news? My father told me 60 years ago how scientists used fired particles in ancient pottery to detect the earths changing magnetic fields.

  • People still use mph … 2018

  • If my compass starts pointing south, I don't want to live anymore.

  • If earths field ever fliped u would fly off the planet nothing to worry about if its going to happen nothing u can do about it lol.

  • Runway markings would need to be redone

  • The poles could reverse and all would be fine?Not thinking so…a pole reversal would have profound effects on earth.

  • If Earth's rotation begins to reverse too it will prove coulomb's law more closely resembles the universe than Newton's law. Mass being only a secondary principle to charge ergo E=MC^2

  • Well I'm no scientist yet explaining the earthquake of Japan that threw earth off it's acex at ? 3.5 centimeters which no one speaks of so how does the constellations align with certain pyrimads? further more why doesn't the planetary observeries have any reports, those giagantic telescopes costing tax payers millions of dollars that never confirmed 1 ufo sighting, something someone not me I don't know

  • FACTS ………………………. EARTHS POLES FLIP MORE OFTEN THEN 200,000 YRS . LAVA ROCKS MAGNETICS COOL AND ARE STUCK IN THE PATH OF THE ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELDS OF THE EARTH AND THE PATH IT CHANGED TO. YOU LIE . THE POLE SHIFTS SPEED UP . YOURE DISINFORMATION IS INTOXICATING SO STOP POSTING FALSE INFO TO THESE PEOPLE …. OR THE SHEEPLE

  • One of the major signs of the end of time is THE RISING OF THE SUN FROM THE WEST.

  • If we all write S where N is on our compases then it would already be flipped

  • Herp derp, a tops axis tilts 22 to 24 degrees as it spins. The shifting isn't fast. It NEVER STOPPED.. Morons

  • Field flip. Done. North is now south

  • Is this another Y2K

  • 2:05
    Turn the quality to 144p and you will see

  • i watched a video,a scientist was around where lava flow was got his compass out it didnt point north

  • So this wont destroy our life and other things and end the world

  • Why no mention on the impact of radiation exposure due to the weakened magnetic field? This video has less to do with science and more of fear management.

  • In normal conditions the magnetic pole move east toward Russia by about 25 miles a year . Few years a go the speed increase to 30 miles a year , Now when we google the same question , We found the speed increased to 40 miles a year and this increase is very significant and the core of the earth temperature is going up and the ocean water temperature is going up by .5 of a degree and it will increase the evaporation level and having floods in some areas,
    Imagine the atmosphere around the earth is stable , Look at the earth with all these mountains , Valleys , High rise buildings are the blades of a fan , When the earth move around itself , It create the wind and when the magnetic field move 40 miles to the east every year , The axis of rotation is changing .This change will have an effect on the direction of the wind and the rain fall or lack of it in some areas . We have to look at the gulf stream which move like a huge river from the gulf of mexico , Texas all the way to north of England which carry warm water and help Europe have a mellow winter , If the changes of axis for the poles have a change on the weather in Europe and from what I know is doing that , Then we have a problem . Some of the people in Europe will move to the Sahara desert in Africa which is going to be very green which is at the same level of Saudi Arabia which many areas in it started to have floods . Just something to think about .

  • The obvious would be to realize that that magnetic rock that they're analyzing is also moving with the Magnetic North Pole causing earthquakes volcanoes under the ice sheets causing ice to melt causing global warming Etc. Are there any intelligent scientist anymore or are they all being paid off by our government to hide the fact that the Magnetic North Pole is causing more of the erratic weather than we are!!!!!!

  • How can you say no one's going to notice the magnetic poles flipping that's totally asinine ….. our weather getting more extreme is part of the solar energy from the Sun being able to infiltrate our planet !!!!!

  • OH NO….. My lensatic compass will be off by 180°.

  • do a update

  • That is already the correct map of the earth. The map that we use today was flipped upside down. South America, Africa, and Australia are already at the top of the map. Mercado and others were the ones that came up with the globe theory and also flipped the map, made the European continents larger than they really are. This was all done for power and control. Look it up, and you will see that it us true. Actually all you have to do is think about what they have said about the map and our continents, and you will begin to have questions.

  • This is gonna be the biggest flip the whole earth would shake no human would be able to stop it idk but I’ve learnt this when I was a kid lol 😂

  • Also referred to as "Polar Shift". Most of us won't be around when this happens…. so have a beer in the meantime. Cheers!

  • Jesus ! You are making stupid videos.

  • Science my fat @$$ ! You call global warming as ….science !

  • earth is sort of a machine and I believe that the coal and gas and fuel you burned was used by it to run that machine so if something is goin wrong with it its probably you did that

  • How long does the flip actually take? Is it gradual or as the poles weaken and begin to move is there a breaking point where they quickly flip? Or neither?

  • have a look at hiroditus histories chapter 42 at one point says this has been recorded twice in the 10,000 preceding him by a sect of Egyption priests that kept records for 300 generation. also metioned that it had very little effect

  • Given I can make, and fire pottery in any direction, how can pottery tell me which direction the global magnetic field is pointing? The stamp only dates the jar. You should explain these things.

  • Hahahahaha is that the NASA that can't travel back to the moon!

  • so i saw some birds in Spain move in like triangle star formations ive never seen it in the uk i believe the magnetic field gets stronger on the equator also there are some unique like circles magnetic all over for migration it could have been a soilcal thing but why triangles going in and out

  • Who still uses a code in 2018 or 2019, the code still works!

  • The Universe is Electric and Earths poles switch every 12,000 years. Check out the Diehold foundation channel

  • Stop lying you know once this flip happen is going to be so many regulations in the air stop stop lying millions of millions of white people going to be affected that mean Arab Chinese people going to be effective with Burns so stop lying because it's going to be a lot of people dying from radiation Burns from the Sun.

  • Its going to disappear when it flips like mars but it's like Venus because of climate change not co2

  • Look at recent news about how fast both the North and South Magnetic Poles are moving at rate of ~55 km year in approximately the same direction for decades now. Plots of both poles suggests a pattern of accelerated pole movement consistent with pole flipping and we may have been witnessing that periodic flip as it evolves for the last few decades.

  • we don't know if the pyramids are 5000 or 12000 years or more but we know the poles flipped 78,000 years ago. I'm starting to the church of scientism is a thing. No one actually knows a thing and everything is a guess (sorry, a theory).

  • Nicely done.

  • WILL NEVER HAPPEN,,,,earth has never been so safe,,,,and you know it,,,,,,best wishes,,

  • Geological records are a scam lol

  • New this fall on HGTV, "Flip That Pole"

  • Where the hoes at

  • by a micro nova?

  • So no sun rising from the west

  • This guy is a liar and an Talking rubbish.. go to CERN AT FACEBOOK for the true shape of things!

  • This is the first channel I’ve found that isn’t sayin the earth will end and humans will cease to exist because of the pole switch. Propaganda is a bisshh

  • It's time to update this video.

    The game is changing.

  • Considering how much metal ore, humans have stripped out ic the earth, it doesn't surprise me that the magnetic fueld is searching for a different "anode". If you notice, everywhere the magnetic field has been, it has been where high levels of metal ore was under the earth's crust. The magnetic field is "lost" and searching for a metal source to "charge" from. And with fracking destabilizing the earth's crust, it is no wonder the earth is destabilizing. Humans destroy everything. Too much knowledge and progress has destroyed us. And we deserve everything Mother Earth is & will throw at us. The earth needs a "purge" purification, as the Earth is in "pain" from humans tearing her guts out. We aren't too smart, in the long run. As evident by our selfish greed and hunger for power. It will never be enough.

  • “The Hour will not be established until the sun rises from the west. Thus, when it rises from the west all people together will believe, but on that day no soul will benefit from his faith if he did not believe earlier or earn good from his faith.” ( Al-Annam 6:158)

  • So if the north and south poles flip.. Does that mean the sun will technically rise from the west??

  • earths magnetic field is not going anywhere we are not a planet stop your lying.

  • Suzanna Maria Emmanuel’s YouTube page 3/31/2019 gives a revolutionary explanation for this… also,

  • At first I thought this was an ad .

  • A little bit of good info, but mostly not so good. Unfortunately folks, you're going to have to do the best you can in piecing together what the reality was & is concerning these matters; whether referencing the past, understanding the present or perceiving our near or distant destiny. Even just a discussion of knowledge lost and especially that of knowledge purposely hidden or disguised should concern us all even beyond our intelligence or imaginations.

  • not climate change causing hurricanes

  • Saying "BCE" over and over again, instead of "BC" sounds so contrived and put on. I realize it is politically correct, but it simply sounds awkward and manipulated.

  • https://youtu.be/EB1nR8yOP8s no it does not .. it HAPPENS every 12,086 years.

  • when the sun rises from the west,, no more repentance shall be accepted from god

  • You know how you missed it. The Dynamo Coriolis effect. When the magnetic fields flip it's a planet's rotation. For 7 to 10 minutes but while they orientate themselves and then the planet spins in the other direction. That's where your evidence is off with the magnetic dust particles. Lining up in your timeline check it

  • I want to see you do a class on the Dynamo Coriolis effect

  • Why does the thumbnail show the Earth upside down we are talking about the magnetic poles not the Earth access the planet itself is not flipping.

  • Your map is wrong Brazil will be the new north pole. Canada will be the new California location wise. There's info look for it

  • I still don't understand
    no matter which way the planet flips its still going to be north
    what influence makes north south?
    or is it just the magnetic field flipping?

  • It’s gonna happen tomorrow
