It is time to start thinking about other things than Global Warming. Researchers warn we need to worry about our planet’s Magnetosphere; Earths magnetic field appears to be collapsing which could severely damage our climate and WIPE OUT power grids across the world.
According to scientists, Earth’s magnetic field is collapsing and our planet’s poles are about to flip which could cause catastrophic events on our planet.
Located deep inside our planet, there is a massive molten core that is capable of generating a magnetic field capable of protection our planet from devastating solar winds. It is called the Magnetic Field, and it has weakened around 15 percent over the last 200 years say, researchers.
The magnetosphere is a large area that encompassing our planet. Its presence alone protects the planet from charged particles of the solar wind and deflects them around Earth.
This enormous protective natural layer of our planet extends thousands of miles into space, and its magnetism si so important and influential, that it affects technology, lifeforms on the planet and weather patterns as well.
However, things might change abruptly as scientists warn that in the last two centuries, the magnetic field has weakened, suggesting that it could be a telltale sign that Earth’s poles are about the flip. While experts believe a flip is overdue, they still cannot tell when it might occur.
If the pole switch does happen, the entire planet and everything on it will become exposed to solar winds which could punch giant holes into the ozone layer which in turn, could have a devastating effect on mankind.
Catastrophic predictions suggest that if the planet’s Magnetosphere starts collapsing, power grids could collapse, the weather would abruptly change, and humans would have serious health risks.
‘This is serious business,’ Richard Holme, Professor of Earth, Ocean and Ecological Sciences at Liverpool University told MailOnline. ‘Imagine for a moment your electrical power supply was knocked out for a few months – very little works without electricity these days.’
