A couple of days ago Michael Ledeen pointed to this frightening article, by journalist Terrence Aym, about "an unstoppable magnetic pole shift that has sped up and is causing life-threatening havoc with the world's weather." Geologist Jonathan DuHamel is having none of it:
Aym’s story is nothing but science fiction. . . . He then goes on to predict all manner of disasters. Sheer nonsense.

. . . Aym’s story has the attributes of a B-grade disaster movie on the Syfy channel, scientific fact be damned.
Phew. But it's Aym's article, not DuHamel's, that'll get optioned.

(DuHamel explains the magnetic-pole shift here.)
