The End is Nigh!

The end is nigh! No, not Brexit! But Civilisation! Scientists are worried that the magnetic North Pole is moving faster than ever before. If this continues it could flip like it has done many times in prehistory.
“A magnetic flip would have dire consequences for any civilisation around when it happens, because the magnetic field would no longer shield the Earth against violent space weather.
Until the new reversed field established itself, terrestrial life — and infrastructure such as satellites, aviation and electrical grids — would be heavily exposed to damaging solar and cosmic radiation.”
