Ruh Ruh, Relroy

So I skimmed this discussion of the gaping hole in the Earth’s magnetic field the other day, and left puzzled, but not terribly concerned – there’s already more than enough to worry about on a day-to-day basis.

One of the things that puzzled me about the article was the scientists’ confusion that a “northward” bundle of solar magnetism is breaking a hole in the field, instead of strengthening it, like it usually does.

Alas, it occurred to me earlier today that this would fit well with the possibility that the Earth’s magnetic field is reversing, an event that is a full 400,000 years overdue.
