Moving Magnetic North Pole May be the Cause of Mysterious Bird, Fish & Crab Deaths

(Before It's News)

The steady and rapid movement of the Magnetic North Pole may be responsible for the recent, sudden and mysterious death of thousands of birds and millions of fish in the US.

In the last week, nearly 100,000 fish washed up on the shores of the Arkansas River, dead. Mysterious Bird & Fish DeathsAlso in Arkansas, thousands of red-winged blackbirds fell from the sky and plummeted to the ground where they were also found dead. The scene repeated itself in Southern Louisiana where 500 red-winged blackbirds recently plunged out of the sky, dead on arrival, and in Chesapeake Bay, thousands of dead fish have begun washing up onto bay shores. Recently several million animals have mysteriously died in the United States. Although some thought that the cause may have been related to fireworks, disease and sudden cold, the cause may be more obvious, the steady, but rapid movement of the Magnetic North Pole towards Russia.

The following are some recent mysterious bird deaths and fish death incidences that have occurred in the United States:

  • 12/31/2010 5,000 redwinged blackbirds plunged to their death.
  • 01/03/2011 100,000 fish wash up dead in Arkansas
  • 01/04/2011 500 birds were found littering a Louisiana highway
  • 01/05/2011 Hundreds of birds fall out of the sky in Murray Kentucky
  • 01/06/2011 Thousands of Turtle Doves fall for the skys, dead in Italy
  • 01/06/2011 Two million fish that wash up on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland
  • 01/06/2011 40,000 Crabs wash up dead on the coastline near Kent, England.

Navigation systems of birds, fish & other wild life:

It is a commonly accepted notion that the navigation systems of many animals are effected by magnetism.  According to the NewScientist BIRDS that navigate using the Earth’s magnetic field rely more on their eyes than on the magnetic particles in their nostrils, an experiment on robins suggests and careful tests with homing pigeons and other birds displaying the ability to judge direction show that the birds are effected by changing magnetic fields.

Additionally, a team of scientists in New Zealand have brought us another step closer to understanding the magnetic sense of the trout, indicating that the trout’s compass is inside its head, near the nose. They found that a fresh-water fish, the trout, would respond to a magnetic field.

Science also suggests that insects use a similar magnetic sense to determine direction citing.

The Shift of Magnetic North

Mysterious bird and fish death magnetic north pole shiftOver the past century The Magnetic North Pole has been shifting toward Russia at a steady pace, in fact, at an average of 25 miles per year, an alarming rate considering how many systems are dependent on its location. Compass needles in Africa, for instance, are drifting about 1 degree per decade. And globally the magnetic field has weakened 10% since the 19th century. Another factor to consider is that the Earth’s Magnetic Poles Flip Regularly. In the past 330,000,000 years the poles have juxtaposed 400 times, or on an average of once every 825,000 years, the last such time was approximately 780,000+/- years ago, making us statistically within one standard deviation of an upcoming Magnetic Pole Reversal. Considering that these reversals take appromiately 1,000 years to complete and the massive move and reduction in strength, we may be within a handful of generations away for such a Magnetic North Pole Reversal.

More Evidence of the Effect of the Movement of Magnetic North

January 2011, TAMPA – Scientists say the magnetic north pole is moving toward Russia and the fallout has reached — of all places — Tampa International Airport. The airport has closed its primary runway until Jan. 13 to repaint the numeric designators at each end and change taxiway signage to account for the shift in location of the Earth’s magnetic north pole.

Cause of Bird and Fish Death

Considering southern migration patterns and environmental cues that wildlife take, it would stand to reason that with the Magnetic North Pole losing strength and moving over and across the True North Pole toward Russia, e.g. Away from the Southern United States in distance and strength, it would stand to reason that birds and fish may be confused as to their distance and direction from the locations they instinctively should be heading. A failure to interpret the location and distance of the Magnetic North Pole could clearly lead to a failure for birds and fish to properly migrate south in time to overt cold spells and imminent death.
