The ORIGINAL post dealt with the shifting MAGNETIC poles which lets in Sun rays and Cosmic rays at a different convection point on the earth's surface. The geographic North Pole is not the same thing as the MAGNETIC North Pole. Geographic North Pole is a stationary point that does not move that we call the North Pole. Magnetic North Pole is a wandering point that goes magnetically down to the center of the earth. When the magnetic North Pole shifts it shifts the umbrella that protects us from cosmic rays of the sun and space to a different convection point on the surface of the Earth. This causes changes in the climate around the Earth from evaporation of water which causes plate tectonics to shift (earthquakes etc). The Earth is 4.6 *10 to the 9th power, 4 .6 billion years old, to say man in less than 200 years changed the climate is hard to swallow. 200 years is barely a blip in the epoch of space and time. Weather patterns and climates fluctuates like the stock market on a daily basis and a yearly basis. Natural Laws control climate not mankind the Earth will do what physics allows it to do, good or bad.
