Scifaiku: LasChamp Event

laschamp event (blog)

LasChamp Event
people of ancient dawn
survive thousand year shift
polarity change

A Scifaiku by Wendy Van Camp
Illustrated by Wendy Van Camp

Scifaiku poem inspired by the current trend of the weakening of the magnetic north. Science postulates that the Earth’s poles might flip again, as it has done 41 thousand years ago. This geomagnetic switch of the past is known as the “LasChamp Event”. Our ancestors survived the change, but one wonders at what cost will it come to us?
