About the only thing that we can be sure of is that the movement of the poles is not a catastrophic disaster. It may well affect the weather patterns and it wouldn't surprise me a bit if there was a slight increase in volcanic activity. Slight means not a worldwide cataclysm but may mean rough times for some people. There will most likely be some increase in earthquakes. The slight change in the pull of the magnetic fields on the floating crust may make for some rather extreme shifts.

The reason that I say that it isn't going to catastrophic is simple. Over the last many million years the poles have wandered all over the place and reversed north to south and south to north a large number of times several times it seems to happen suddenly. The thing that you need to understand in that over those same many years there have been several mass extinctions and near world-ending periods. NONE of these extinction events coincided with the pole shifts. There is no indication that there has ever been a mass extinction event connected with a pole shift, even when it happens suddenly and faster than we can imagine.

a sudden flip might cause a mass die-off of certain species that are dependent on that to guide their migration patterns. Imagine the geese heading in the opposite direction in the winter and going into the arctic thinking that they were going to warmer latitudes! The whales and many fish migrate thousands of miles that might have problems going to their spawning and breeding areas. All and all though for modern man it would be more of a terrible and disastrous inconvenience than a cataclysm.

I like how you think. Not everything is a disaster

A lot of things that might have been a catastrophic disaster 150 years ago are much less disastrous now due to our much-improved technology and better building practices. Conversely, because of our MASSIVELY increased population and the enormous size of our cities and coastal populations, some disasters that in the past were bad but not nearly the number deaths can now have death numbers in the hundreds of thousands. On the good side is that modern aid gets to the disaster area and that saves a lot of lives that in the past would have been lost in the after-effects of the disaster.

In the future, there will be major disasters but many of them can be greatly lessened if people will use their common sense. What happened in New Orleans was more the result of people sitting there and letting a cat 5 hurricane roll past them. Understand though it MISSED New Orleans and it was the backside winds coming from the north that caused the flooding. Had it hit dead on or to the west there would have been a storm surge and the deaths would have been unimaginable.

We need to evacuate when a HUGE hurricane is rolling in. We need to stop building massive cities on top of known big fault lines and stop building on the side of hills with heavy brush. WHEN not if these things bite us in the butt I would hope that the Government won't allow rebuilding in STUPID places like they did in New Orleans. They rebuilt in holes that are 12 feet below sea level. If a 35-foot storm surge rolls in EVERYONE in those holes will die...needlessly.

Well stated. I agree.
