Summary:

Quote
The sun's magnetic field reverses its polarity once every 11 years or so
Flip represents a peak in solar activity where bursts of energy are released
These bursts can lead to space storms and changes to Earth's climate
Radio and satellite communications may also be affected

For those who want a different perspective NASA has created a video describing the coming flip:

Remember all the havoc the last time this happened?

Me neither...

It has flipped, we know that for sure.  Isn't it hypothesized this is one of the reasons dinosaurs went extinct?

No... it does it every 11 years or so...

You may be thinking of the Earth's magnetic field reversing itself (although I have no idea if it had anything to do with the dinos dying out).

Which I believe is going to happen again, possibly soon, and cause all the massive earth changes which have been predicted.

Anybody else on here ever read the works of the much maligned Immanuel Velikovsky?

Maybe so, maybe so.

I'd take the pole-switch/extinction theory with a large grain of salt.  Occam's Razor suggests that the meteor impact theory is a much stronger candidate.
