Hello All, I wonder how much the change in the magnetic poles has to do with our climate changes as well? http://science.nasa.gov/headlines/y2003/… I don't have exact numbers, however this was one of southern Alberta's wettest years with the worst flooding seen in over 100 years. Now we are facing fire bans and fire risk due to lack of moisture. We still have no snow and as a Canadian girl who grew up on the prairies it is just down right weird! My camassia bulbs are growing!
