40 Volcanoes Are Erupting Right Now, And 34 Of Them Are Along The Ring Of Fire

You may not have noticed, but our planet is becoming increasingly unstable. According to Volcano Discovery, 40 volcanoes around the globe are erupting right now, and only 6 of them are not along the Ring of Fire. If that sounds like a very high number to you, that is because it is a very high number.
"Scientists already know that magnetic north shifts. Once every few hundred thousand years the magnetic poles flip so that a compass would point south instead of north. While changes in magnetic field strength are part of this normal flipping cycle, data from Swarm have shown the field is starting to weaken faster than in the past. Previously, researchers estimated the field was weakening about 5 percent per century, but the new data revealed the field is actually weakening at 5 percent per decade, or 10 times faster than thought. As such, rather than the full flip occurring in about 2,000 years, as was predicted, the new data suggest it could happen sooner." - SEE LIVESCIENCE LINK(s) AT BOTTOM OF MADMAN POST.

Could Earth's Magnetic Poles Flip This Century? Swarm satellite (ESA) measurements made from January to June 2014 show a dramatic decline in Earth's magnetic field over North and South America with a strengthening of the Earth's magnetic field over the southern Indian Ocean. 2014 image by ESA's Swarm Satellite. -
