The sun's polar magnetic fields weaken, go to zero, and then emerge again with the opposite polarity," Stanford solar physicist Phil Scherrer said in a statement. "This is a regular part of the solar cycle." - See more at: http://www.space.com/22271-sun-magnetic-field-flip.html#sthash.C6A4r96L.dpuf


Let's just hope the Earth's magnetic field doesn't get caught in suns magnetic field as the sun twists otherwise the Earth might flip with it and drain all of the water off of the planet.


What a shame that would be. But on the bright side we could all jump off of the Earth into the new ocean formed underneath of it.

This should not be a serious problem, at least compared to on-going predicaments such as peak oil, global warming, and the global financial crisis.

I foresee major issues. My polarized sunglasses will stop working, I'll have to buy new sunscreen that compensates for the flip... don't mind me, I got this sardonic over Y2K too.

I agree, eutychus.  This could cause major communications problems.
