OPINION (Express) – The Magnetic North is moving at an unprecedented rate and scientists are concerned it could spark a Pole Reversal and cause widespread tech chaos. Scientists have recently discovered that the North Pole is moving from the Canadian Arctic towards Siberia at a rate of 55km a year.

geomagnetism experts to undergo an urgent update of the World Magnetic Model (WMM) where it will alter where exactly the North Pole is. The next update was not scheduled to happen until 2020, but due to the North Pole’s sudden shift, researchers have to bring it forward.
