Moving the Poles

18 February 2022

Some interesting articles in the current issue of 'New Concepts in Global Tectonics' several of which have a geomagnetic connection. See www.ncgtjournal.com and click on the December 2021 issue. Scroll down to a two page piece by Giovanni Gregori, which concerns solar/planetary issues. He says the biggest part of the universe is likely to be much hotter than our solar system. As such, atomic nuclei cannot capture electrons. No photons are released. This is controversial but he relates it to a dynamic electro-magnetic process – which is possibly what astronomers refer to as dark matter. Interesting idea. He goes on to say there is no plate tectonics, and also, no earth expansion. The earth is charged and discharged like a battery. The solar wind inducts the earth's battery, he says, but goes on to make some remarkable claims that are interesting for those people who think the earth has moved at its poles. This is the bit I have focussed on. Comets are are frequent but usually, they are of a relatively small size in comparison with the earth. They are mostly only seen in telescopes. A comet, apart from evaporating various gases, including water vapour, can generate a 'plasma cloud' that interacts with the solar wind. This causes comets to form a temporary magnetosphere. However, the average small comet is too little to have an effect on the earth's magnetosphere. On the other hand, occasionally a large comet visits the inner solar system and is capable of interacting with earth's magnetosphere, depending on its trajectory. One might think of Comet Halley, for example, which was probably very much bigger than it is today, a couple of thousand years ago.

Shifting the poles is thought to require a very large object, possibly of planet size, in order to move the rotational poles of the earth. It is a basic parameter of mainstream science. As such, the claim the earth has never moved at the poles is ingrained into all university students of earth science, astronomy, and history. It is therefore not used as an explanation of the Ice Ages, or at least the extent of the Late Glacial Maximum. Poles do not move as no huge cosmic body has visited the inner solar system, planet or otherwise. However, Gregori provides a means for the earth to shift at the poles. Large comets have come and gone on a variety of occasions, and not just Comet Halley in its prime. In a geomagnetic scenario it does not require a large object to exert energy on the poles but an electric discharge event is capable of moving the earth at the axis of rotation. An electric discharge between a very large comet, possibly even a meteoroid, and the earth, overrides mass. He goes on to say that electro-magnetic interactions between comets and planets has been underestimated, or even overlooked entirely. In other words, mass is not as important as the electric chage of a space rock, or comet. So, do we now have a mechanism for pole shift?

Further, he refers to volcanism as akin to a pressure cooker, where the volcanic cone represents the security valve. A pressure cooker can blow and scatter steam and boiling water, plus what is cooking, around a kitchen. He wrote this prior to the recent Tonga volcano when in ten minutes or so a huge amount of energy was released and transported around the atmosphere before gradually dissipating. Scientists were astounded by the ferocity of the volcano. One can also think of the Mount St Helens eruption – a massive release of energy from within the earth. Do they also have an electro-magnetic connection?

The electro-magnetic aspects of a comet, effectively a temporary magnetosphere of its own, interacting with the magnetosphere of the earth, has as yet unknown consequences. One may also think of magnetic excursions and reversals. What are they all about? What causes them? They involve movement of the earth's dipole.
