The Earth will undergo a reversal of its geographic poles

The Earth will undergo a reversal of its geographic poles


René Arrieta Pérez[1], José Vicente Arias Rincón[2]




In this research, we intend to call the attention of the scientific community on a phenomenon that threatens life on the planet, which has not been among the different possibilities that have been analyzed, and this is the inclination of the planet Earth’s axis, which happens by the incidence of the melting of glaciers and the Poles, because the Earth is a balance in balance, and as it gradually tilts, the axis will reach a critical point where the globe swings. Then the Earth will experience the reversal of its geographic poles. The phenomenon of thaw, that is steadily rising, which would not only increase the sea level, but also would lead to the phenomenon that we pointed out. This possibility acquires a high representativeness.



Cataclysm, end of the human race, earth live wipeout, melting glaciers, catastrophic imbalance of de earth’s axis.  




Disappearing as mankind has always been a clear and present danger.  The danger has been a real possibility, and that is what our study is about, which we address through analysis, calculations, forecasts and demonstration of results. It is not an unfounded hypothesis. It is one of the most terrible possibilities, that possibility of poles reversal is what we report and illustrate in our research study, the evidence of the facts confirms it for us.  Never before has anyone reached this dramatic conclusion of the imminent danger of the disappearance of life off the face of the earth.


As researchers, we fear that we have had to come up with the gloomiest hypothesis within the field of research in the history of man, by the very nature of the question, Is human life and the life of the other species of the animal and plant kingdoms of the planet at risk?


And the answer, which poses the thesis of this article, is yes! The permanence of life on the planet is certainly at that imminent risk.



  1. The law of cause and effect in anthropogenic activities leads to the breaking of the balance of the systems that support life on the planet


Indeed, the different anthropic activities (or human activities), such as the destruction of ecosystems, from extractive mining activity, the destruction of forests for population and construction, the weight and pressure of mega-cities, the use and implementation of the soil for livestock that, in turn, generate methane that destroys the ozone layer, the exploitation of underground water resources, the exploitation of oil, which leaves the earth's crust without the buffering component. All these kinds of actions, which man has been doing for centuries and continues to do in a day by day basis, have been creating imbalances that at some point have reached a critical point, and it is now, in the imminence of that event, when it is up to us to face the consequences, it appears to be an irreversible fact.


Scientists talk about the life on earth as a set of infinite circumstances that combine in a miraculous balance, which form a living being with physical-chemical, biological and atmospheric dynamic relationships (1).


Balance that has been broken by the anthropic activity: destructive pressure, which is in a population of 7.7 billion people on the planet today (2).


In the Essay on the Principle of Population, a study based on the theory of population, (3), foresaw that at some point, nature would not admit a single person more in this already busy world and considers man to be prey to the adverse conditions of society. This premonitory panorama of Malthus is seen today; however, Malthus didn’t ever imagine how harmful life on the planet would be by increasing the population on the planet.


Of course, every effect has a cause that explains the phenomenon. Of causes and effects is full in the history of man, and we must say it: man activates that law and does not do so in a rational manner, but, on the contrary, it is an accumulation of actions and excesses that now put in jeopardy his survival on earth. What man has generated through his history derives unfailingly into the serious consequences that the greenhouse effect, natural disasters such as hurricanes, tsunamis, earthquakes, the melting of glaciers, the destruction of the ozone layer, and, in general, the increasing instability of the planet that is reflected in different orders, and it is heading for a definitive collapse.




  1. Risk of disaster due to the imbalance of the earth's axis


The planet is clearly a stable balanced system, because of the equilibrium among its proportions: continental masses, oceanic water masses, glacial and polar ice masses.


In fact, the scales are the instruments designed to balance the force of gravity that acts on the mass of a body, according to the definition of the University of Grenada.

Similarly, the institution defines the term balance as: establishing the same position of an indicator or a faithful, before and after placing, in their respective places, the body and the reference mass or weight used.[3]


Then, after the fortuitous fact of nature of balancing its weights on earth, the marvelous equilibrium occurs, which is ‘the state in which the total of forces acting on a body, or structure, add up to zero.'[4]


If we perform, in a mental experiment, the visualization of the planet as it is, and We place it in a different scenario, where its water bodies move with a certain pressure to one side, nothing will happen but a wobble from the swaying of one side of the scale.


Consequently, when the melting of the glaciers, and especially of the North Pole, occurs, the mass of water from this melt that flows to other centers of gravity than the one currently in equilibrium, must lead to axial disturbance, and consequently, the tilting of the globe.

  1. Global warming and polar caps melting data and alarm. Point of no return


In the interest of environmental protection, the United Nations created a series of conventions and measures to prevent further damage to the atmosphere and thus mitigate climate change: among them, the incentive to generate clean energy, afforestation and reforestation, reduction of greenhouse gases, allocation of emission quantities to all countries (4).


Not all countries signed, and those that did sign have not fully complied with the agreed conditions, and all that action becomes just harmless attempts to solve a problem of enormous consequences for the security of life and the permanence of the species in the planet.


Also, in 2015, an agreement of nations was signed in Paris to combat climate change, control of carbon emissions, to accelerate and intensify actions and investments for sustainable development and to keep temperatures below 1.5 ºC in this century, among other aspects (5).


Within its vision and commitment, the United Nations says that the greatest challenge of our time is climate change. It also expresses how fatal the human footprint in the Generation of Greenhouse Gases (GHGS) has been. We all know that is a natural process, but after more than a century and a half of industrialization, deforestation and large-scale agriculture the amounts of gases in the atmosphere has increased on the planet, to levels never seen before in 3 million years (6).


Even scientists do not have a crystal clear picture of what would happen if the entire ice sheet of the glaciers and polar ice caps were to be lost. They do not yet specify the dire consequences for civilization; however, they are engaged in studies for the understanding of this phenomenon. We present some of these relevant studies.


There are a number of changes, alterations, fusions and collapses of glaciers, and irreparable damages, in general, in the cryosphere. Likewise, there have been changes in the oceans. Researchers confirms, that for the preparation of the report, more than 100 authors from 36 countries evaluated the latest scientific literature on oceans and cryosphere in a changing world, and have cited approximately 7000 scientific publications. For its relevance and gravity, we allude to these points. (7):


Melting glaciers and ice sheets cause sea level increase, and extreme coastal events are becoming increasingly violent.


The world's oceans and the cryosphere have absorbed heat from climate change for decades, and now the consequences for nature and mankind are serious.


Glaciers, snow, ice and permafrost are diminishing and will continue to diminish, according to the projections, it will translate dangers for people, for example, in phenomena such as landslides, avalanches, rock fallings and floods.


Loss of up to 80% of minor glacier masses in Europe, East Africa, the tropical Andes and Indonesia will be a fact of life by 2100.


Forest fires will disrupt ecosystems in most boreal regions and the tundra, as well as in the mountain areas.


One of the strongest United Nations reports on environmental damage and the subsequent climate change, is undoubtedly, the Nairobi Report. The warnings are clear and reveal a terrible picture.


The UN, in the Nairobi Report, categorically dates the end of mankind: 30 years. It's a catastrophic assessment, but it's sincere and accurate. It indicates that everything will be possible due to the extinction of the Arctic ice, desertification will become extensive, temperatures will become high and irresistible and there will be a lot of death due to poor air quality. The multilateral body assures that the more pollution, more population and even less awareness, the sooner the waste would be. 250 specialists from different branches of science and knowledge from 70 countries came to this alarming conclusion (8).


Of course, this is historical information because of its breadth and conclusions, with no positive data for the future of the planet. Since the first UN report on the subject, in 1997, it has become clear that the necessary conditions are not met in the objectives set for 2030 and 2050, for the mitigation of the phenomenon and of the inherent damages (9).


Also, a number of scientists are trying to do simulations and studies in laboratories, to recreate different scenarios of global warming, the melting of the glaciers and try to understand the phenomena and their effects on the environment consequences for life on the planet.


Meanwhile, for these scientists there are numerous sources of uncertainty in predicting the worst case scenario, including factors such as the speed with which the seas will rise, related to the rapidity with which the ice sheets covering Greenland and Antarctica slide, and see that the future is uncertain, but that they need to prepare for change (10).


In the same vein, according to a new expert study, it is revealed that the loss of the ice mass happens without precedent, at a rate of 30% of the surface layer from the beginning of the 20th century. This study points out that the contribution of 60% of the water that rising sea level, comes from the melting of the Arctic surface layer, which makes its way through the currents that reach the ocean. Similarly, it states that the alarming conclusions derive from observations of polar ice cores and a coastal ice cap from different areas more than 1800 meters above sea level. Drilling was carried out during various expeditions in 2003, 2014 and 2015.


The study is significant because it combines measurements of ice sheet changes on the surface of Greenland with simulations of independent computer models, and both lines show that the thaw in recent decades is unprecedented in the last 330 years (11).


One of the main functions of the polar territories is the reflection of solar radiation, act as a global temperature refrigerant, this moderating action is distributed by the ocean currents. The reduction of the ice-covered areas of the Polar Regions has serious local and global implications, since they reflect 90% of solar radiation; liquid water surfaces only reflect 10%. That phenomenon is called albedo. According to the United Nations Programme for Environment (UNEP), the region is undergoing a profound transformation by the interaction of the forces of climate change and harmful human activities. In a nutshell, as indicated by international organizations, the most alarming is the melting of the poles (12).


It is true and normal that within the field of science, in research there are discrepancies and different positions, which enter into debate; but, apart from this, the data are sometimes meaningful and alarming and allow only the worst-case scenarios possible. In this article that we mention, there is  a comparison of the different types of research that show alarming data and other research studies that do not show the same results.


As far as we're concerned, we highlight the data recorded in the text, which are worrying and underpin our position: "One of the most drastic anthropogenic consequences of climate change is the melting of the glacier masses present in Greenland and Antarctica, which will lead a global rise in ocean levels. These are highly significant ice reserves, whose melting rate has increased especially in recent decades”. (13).


At the same time, and despite the great evidence of the consequences of the damage to the environment, to the melting of the glaciers, some researchers raise their negative opinions and skepticism about the subject, such as the publication of an article in the Russian daily Novaya Gazeta, signed by Yulia Latynina, which subtitles: "The story of the greatest scientific falsification in history." However, the N+1 medium requested to the principal research scientist of the Climate Theory Laboratory of the Obukhov Institute of Atmospheric Physics of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Alexander Chernokulsky, to comment on the publication. Among his considerations, we highlight the following: that the first estimates of heat balance on the surface were made by Mikhail Ivanovich Budyko, in 1956, and today with long-term satellite and terrestrial observations, the global averaged radiation and heat flow values we have been able to establish the Earth’s climate system.


That the monitoring of atmospheric carbon dioxide has also been carried out, since it was done in 1956 in Mauna Loa, Hawaii. There has been a significant increase in carbon dioxide concentration over time. Which has been verified on the basis of the analysis of air bubbles in the glacier cores of Antarctica, whose measurements made it possible to establish that in the last millions of years, the concentration of CO2 in the Earth’s atmosphere has never been so high. It also states that, through technology, it is possible to determine accurately and through different methods estimates of anthropogenic flow generated by industry, agriculture, energy and other factors. Finally, he points out that global climate change is happening before our eyes, and that economic activity accelerates and deepens these phenomena, which are not the invention of climatologists (14).


And to conclude with the quotations on climate change and glacier melting, we want to refer to the following research, which warns about Arctic melting being faster than in Antarctica.


In their work, the authors of "Thawing in the Arctic and Antarctica", indicate as conclusive points, that any variation in ambient temperature entails an immediate response in the glacier discharge (there is a direct relation), and that at the same latitude in both hemispheres, the glacier discharge is 3.5 times greater in the Arctic than in Antarctica (15).



  1. Data analysis, predictions, and results


The reversal of the geographic poles due to the disruption of the Earth's natural balance is a phenomenon that has a 90% chance of happening, and not in a random, but by analysis that led us to the certainty that it will happen. Here is our predictive model.


Due to the increase in water masses as a result of the melting of glaciers and the North Pole, we anticipate that the axis of the globe will be altered, according to what is known the 23, 5° of inclination. We also sense that this inclination is already taking place since the beginning of 2019, and that by the end of 2020, the tilt will be about 3°, and it will continue happening, in biannual periods, until the year of 2052, when it will reach the critical point -74.5°-where, by such inclination and by an imbalance between the masses of the continents, the oceans, the ice cap of the South Pole and by the lack of the ice cap of the North Pole (which will disappear completely by the thaw), and whose absence would mean the lack of a natural counterweight in the existing equilibrium, and a pressure that destabilizes the planet will be exerted, inexorably, and finally, in this event, Earth will lose its axial equilibrium and experience a tilt in its globe structure, that would lead to a displacement and reversal of the geographic poles.


    1. Biannual tilt of the Earth’s axis which is, according to what is known, at 23.5º


We anticipate, as a consequence of the irreversible damage that the planet Earth is now experiencing (we refer to the pre-eminent factor of the thaw), a progression in the inclination of the Earth’s axis, which will be as shown in the chart and diagrams.

Up until 2018, the inclination of the axis was 23.5°.

We foresee a progressive slope of 3° every two years

The critical point is 74.5°, in the year 2052.



    1. Events and consequences on the planet after the axial equilibrium break


After the rupture of the axial balance of the globe, which we place in the 74.5º incline, a series of specific events implicit in the catastrophe will happen, such as the fracture of the islands in the various seas and oceans by the small thickness of their pillars. Among these events, in general, we note the following:


Island and archipelagos will be adrift on the planet's geography.

Much of the current landmass will be immersed by seismic movements.


Pendulum effect of the globe will continue until it becomes stable again.

constant seismic and volcanic activity.

The new North Pole would be left with a westward tilt of 336.5, contrary to what it is now, and would aim its axis, no longer at the North Star, but at the star Vega.

  1. It's too late for mankind


Preservation of the seed. Challenge, and purpose for not disappearing; The Ark.


The scientific community has long considered the possibility of evacuating the planet for different reasons:


For the excess population, for lack of resources to avoid a food crisis, for lack of the most precious liquid such as water (economists already postulate in their forecasts that future wars will be for the possession of water).

Stephen Hawking, at a conference at Oxford University, said that man should begin to look for ways to evacuate the planet and invited the big companies to see as urgent the investment in the construction of spaceships capable of flying to great distances and reaching other planets.


The great scientist calculates a time of one hundred years. So, dramatically, man needs to preserve the seed of humanity in a short time. His foresight is related to the abruptness that is being experienced in climate change. He further stated that the government measures in the various countries have been insufficient to rescue nature. (16).


Similarly, while looking at the possibility of risk somewhat distant, (17) states: "But if we look to the distant future, sooner or later we will face a disaster so big that adaptation will be almost impossible. We will have to leave the Earth or perish. There is no other option"


Also, this approach of the scientific community to the possible exit of the planet to preserve the seed is reflected in the documentary Evacuate Earth, in which several personalities from the scientific world elucidate on the subject. The way the man would leave the planet would be a ship, which in the documentary is curiously called The Ark (18).


Similarly, film fiction recreates in various films the catastrophes that could put an end to civilization for different reasons, among which we highlight: "10.5: Apocalypse (2006), John Lafia; "Terminator II: Judgment Day” (1991), James Cammeron; "Independence Day" (1996), Roland Emmerich; "Armageddon" (1998), Michael Bay; "The Day After Tomorrow" (2004), Roland Emmerich; "Children of Men" (2006), Alfonso Cuarón; "I am" (2007), Francis Lawrence; Mad Max: Fury road (2015), George Miller; "PANDORUM" (2009), Christian Alvart; "2012: The World’s End" (2009), Roland Emmerich.


Without a doubt, with an eventual and unfortunate catastrophe for humanity, all these films can be a futuristic vision of our final destiny.


We also think that the scientific projects around the idea of surviving a fatal and imminent catastrophe, or destruction of the Earth, that will make humankind and their history disappear   from the universe, the aspiration of colonization of exoplanets after terraforming them, are unsustainable. The approaches that project the future of humanity are being pre-thought for many years. However, the collapse of the planet is imminent and there will not be time to realize those projects.  They’re too big. Several possibilities are proposed, including terraforming Mars for colonization (19).


It should be noted that if human beings, generation after generation, had been aware that we owed ourselves to our planet and had taken care of it, we would not need to leave it or evacuate it; at least, not with the urgency with which this is now being considered, but within highly analyzed and well -thought  plans. If natural conditions had imposed it on us for one reason or another, and so, timely and forward in the future, anything would be possible.


Finally, we have to ask some questions. What would be the real way in which human beings can guarantee ourselves the salvation of a catastrophe of such magnitude that will destroy life on the planet? What will be the cost, the sacrifices? Time is short and it is up to the scientists to deliberate. Many questions arise in the face of such a huge and far-reaching problem.




The results and analysis of our research has led us to some conclusions.

The first responds to the research question that if our life on the planet is at risk and the answer is yes.  We know the risk is imminent due to the speed of the thaw and the resulting inclination of the earth's axis, which constitutes the thesis of this work. The second is that we believe that in the past two years, scientists have not been monitoring if the value of the tilt of the earth's axis has changed and it is still maintained in the 23.5°, or if on the contrary it has changed.

This observation is important, because it is possible that from the year 2018 and back, melting will not determine the tilt of the earth's axis, and after that date, the phenomenon has continued. The third is that from the resulting axial inclination, a series of cataclysmic events will eventually occur.

The authors of the study invite the scientific community to carry out their own research based on our predictive model, data and analysis that we propose. Simulations of the tilt of the earth be carried out in their laboratories, and verify the current tilt of Earth's axis.
