That’s what this study suggests. But I wonder, did those volcanoes erupt in sync with the Laschamps magnetic reversal? Because if they did, then the magnetic reversal was actually the real culprit.
That’s exactly what I said in both Not by Fire but by Ice and Magnetic Reversals and Evolutionary Leaps. Now here’s a video exploring that very question.
Could indicate that a magnetic reversal is imminent.
Finally! Mainstream science is beginning to catch up with me.
May radically reduce Earth’s human population … via crop failures, shortened growing-seasons, famine and disease.
I also think the excursion was responsible for creating the Carolina Bays, the millions – yes, millions! – of huge elliptical depressions gouged into the ground at the same time. Many of those depressions were bigger than some modern-day cities.
Could this be a precursor to a full-fledged magnetic excursion?
Just what I’ve been saying for more than 20 years! (Except I say reversals can occur far, far faster than even this article portrays.)
“Earth’s magnetic field has been quiet,” writes Dr Tony Phillips. “Very quiet. The sun is in the pits of what may turn out to be the deepest Solar Minimum in a century. Geomagnetic storms just aren’t happening.”
