Earth’s magnetic field is mysteriously acting up, pushing North Pole towards Siberia — RT World News

Earth’s magnetic field, the basis for modern global navigation systems, is constantly in some state of flux. However, it now seems to be going haywire, pushing the North Pole closer to Siberia, and no one’s sure why.The field changes as the molten metals surrounding the earth’s solid iron core churn and flow, creating electric currents and a corresponding magnetic field. As a result, the magnetic poles tend to shift slightly as a matter of course.However, researchers don’t know what’s causing the magnetic field to now move so quickly.
