The science says that pole shifts take a long time (usually around 5,000 years) and that they occur at *irregular* intervals.<br />
So, the geodynamo in the earth's core that creates the magnetic field is not an alarm clock. It doesn't go off suddenly on a given date. When it does start, the magnetic field strength of the earth does not drop to zero. Instead we'll get additional 'north' and 'south' poles cropping up in odd places. Magnetic compasses will no longer point in the expected direction, and this situation will persist for at least several hundred years, and perhaps a few thousand years, before it settles down into the new configuration.
in the uk we have hundreds of thousands of polish immigrants so the pole shift has started
What will happen?....you will die....that is what will happen...
Depends on what you mean by 'soon'. In geological timefr<x>ames it's likely it will happen reasonably soon. Will that be in our lifetime? Unlikely I'd say and possibly not for 100's of thousands of years from now or possibly even millions. Not having been through one in modern times our knowledge is somewhat limited on exactly what to expect beyond that we know they've happened plenty of times before. I don't think the affects will be overly dramatic.
There will be a period of no gravity, think of hanging on the the merry go round at high speed
Weather blah, blah, blah. Don't worry about the pole shift unless someone tells you your equilibrium is going to be off for the next forty years, and that you'll have to walk on your hands.

it will take thousands of years - charles hapgood was a crank
