So, this solar pole flip energy stuff has some of us really flipped out, right?
As I discuss in this week’s featured video there’s nothing to fear because we’ve all done this before. The flip we’re in now is only the 4th observed since tracking began in 1976.
The Sun’s magnetic field flips regularly every 11 years at the peak of each solar activity cycle…when the Sun’s internal magnetic dynamo reorients itself. We’re not sure exactly why this occurs. Scientists predicted the flip would occur now & say it should be complete by December.
Think back to late 2000, early 2001. Do you remember anything significant happening? That’s when we had our last flip.
What’s happening now is that the sun’s magnetic field has weakened, eventually dying down to zero point before ramping up again with an opposite polarity. So, north is south & south is north. Flip-flop!
It’s important that you know, Lima Bean, that this is not a disastrous event.
BUT scientists do acknowledge the reversal will have ripple […]
