What are your thoughts on this theory?
The shifts in the magnetic north pole were enough to affect some airports, and many animals are affected by changes in magnetic fields. Seems plausible as one explanation, but I'm sure poison, stress, unusually cold water, weather and some of the other theories about normal occurrences in nature might be right for some of the cases too. What do you think?
Moving magnetic north pole may be the cause of mysterious bird and fish deaths
Shift in magnetic north pole affects Tampa airport
Magnetic north pole shifts forces closure of Florida airport
But WHY only SPECIFIC breeds of birds and fish?! Why not ALL breeds of birds and fish--even a few "indiscriminate" ones?!
Sorry, but I am still hanging my hat on the fact that it is a NATURAL occurrence as documented for the past 40 years by the US Geological Society!
I also blame the media for overplaying any significance or playing into people's "end of the world" perceptions. Remember all of the shark attacks in late 2000 and early 2001?! Based solely on media reports, you would think it was unsafe to swim in a POOL for fear of being attacked by a shark, let alone the ocean!
But then, 9/11 happened, and POOF! No more shark attacks!! Why is that?! Did sharks use up their "15 minutes of fame?!" LOL
