North Pole in Distress

Objectif Pôle Nord
França 2010, Documentário, Stéphane Nicolopoulos/Yanick Rose, 52 min.

The Magnetic Pole, to where the compasses from anywhere in the world point, progressively dislocates and every year it is necessary to adapt the maritime charts. In 2005, two scientists, measuring the exact location of the Magnetic Pole, discovered it had move 120km instead of the usual 40km annual. This uncommon acceleration of the dislocation of the Magnetic Pole and the lowering density of the terrestrial magnetism – less than 10% in 100 years – could be a sign of an eminent Pole inversion, phenomenon that last occurred 780.000 years ago?  Are we in the verge of seeing this occurring? What will be the consequences to the Earth and to its inhabitants?
