This new theory says that the magnetic poles will shift in the near future (which, in all likelihood, they won’t, at least not in human time scales), and that this will change our climate (which maybe it could, but not nearly as much as the drastic change we’re already experiencing), all this will somehow create superstorms (no idea), and this somehow probably all ties into 2012…somehow. We feel it is our duty as sceptics and lovers of good science to point you in the direction of Phil Plait’s epic takedown of this “theory” over at Bad Astronomy.
