Magnetic pole shift

This post will be unusual because of no links, no pics. I’ve looked at many articles and they’re all speculative, from those assuring us it’s not going to happen, to it’s not going to hurt us, to dire consequences for humans.

From what I can gather, it’s happened many times before, it’s 100,000 years overdue but if it does come, it might be soon and might be much faster than the earlier ones. We know the pole is moving towards Greenland and accelerating but whether the flip happens is up in the air.

Consequences? Not a lot from the flip beyond loss of communications for some time but the greater danger appears to be a weakened field, which lets nasties in like solar winds and other space debris.

Again speculative but there were living thing wipeouts in the past. Were these due to flips? Who knows? One thing I read was oxygen loss, meaning oxygen depletion. Another was increasing tsunamis and the like.

If it does occur, it’s meant to be for 200 to 400 years, then back again. So we’ll be somewhere else by then.

Blood on the water

Amfortas suggested that this canal might not be a great one to go down:

I found this in trying to find the actual airdraft:


Having a dismantling wheelhouse, I can reduce my airdraft from 6’10” to 5’4″ at a pinch, I’d not have a problem under normal canal levels, particularly as beam is slightly under the limit.

Unfortunately, it’s a central canal in England, on many people’s route south, so let’s see.

The issue

Of all the preceding, it’s the topics inpart one, plus this one now, along with K’s tale and that of the son of my step-sister, which disturb me the most.

As I wrote earlier – it is the uncontrolled manner, the lack of any sort of ethical limits, no decent upbringing, a real Theresa May thumbing of the nose at any sort of proprieties and ways of doing things – these presage a very bad time ahead for western society in 2019/20, up against the double enemy of Them plus Islam, which they’re using.

Tracing our steps from the beginning

The subheading comes from Jackson Browne’s Before the Deluge and there’s going to be some risk to myself, this part three is going to cost me, so here goes. What I’m aiming to do is go decade by decade but that in itself raises certain problems.

Let’s say I zero in on an age range, say 16 to 18, then I can only write of my own situation within my own decade and as I need to compare like-for-like over the decades to show how things have changed, then obviously I need to tell you what others told me on good authority in later decades – not from research but from firsthand accounts and that, as mentioned in part two, raises the question of why anyone would tell me those things.

Plus there are geographical differences – some of these are from Britain, some from Australia, some from Russia.

Let’s start though at the beginning.
