Episode 22: Proof We Are Not Experiencing a Pole Shift, Part 2

It’s a bit late, but that’s ’cause I came home from my conference last week with a bacteria colony or virus infestation. Hard to record a podcast if you can’t talk.

This episode is shorter, only about 18 minutes long. It’s separated into two sections with the first being on the mechanisms to do a pole shift, and the second being how to tell if we’re in a geographic pole shift now (hint: we’re not).

So … short episode, short blog post ’bout it.



  1. Thank you, Professor.
    Have a good and quick recovery.

    • Thanks. Sunday was the worst day, but I’ve had a sore throat ever since then that’s its worst when I wake up. Slowly disappears during the day, and then it’s back when I wake up.

  3. Seems that Dr. Robbins has the same illness that I and many of my co-workers have had. It seems to hang around for 2 weeks. It is so bad that even my gung-ho, overachieving store manager called in sick for the first time in living memory.

    Thanks for the podcast, and feel, better!

  4. Hey Stu ,
    Having lived in Alaska for the past 12 years 1 month and some odd days ( in various locations of the state ) I can confirm the obvious with you . Fort Yukon , 8 miles north of the Arctic circle , on the Yukon River is still in the same place on the earth as it has been in native american remembered history . The rivers by Mcgrath , Alaska still freeze and brake up at the same time they always have ( relative to our climate change/burp ) . The seasons come and go in Angoon and Craig as they always have .( 750/900 miles south of Fort Yukon respectively ) In Tok Alaska they have an annual Summer Solstice party at Moon Lake to watch the sun not set . Chickens start and stop laying eggs the same time every year ( they like light 12 on 12 off ) . Every time I look in the sky at night I find the Big Dipper in the place it belongs .
    Alaska ( the forgotten state ) covers a lot of ground , If it moved , someone would have noticed ( Well maybe not the Exxon Valdez ). The rivers are bush highways in the winter , I am sure that if I-25 was not there , you would notice . If a farmer could no longer count on the standard seasons to plant and reap , someone would notice . If I didn’t have to run lights for the chickens in the winter , or had to in the summer , Ida noticed . If the party at Moon Lake did not see the sun not set , O-Boy would someone have noticed !
    Anyway , creepin crud , Yuk . Hot toddies , Yum ! I don’t fly any more for that reason , and being packed like sardines although I’m sure you don’t have that luxury . Good show , good luck , GOOD JOB !

  5. I’m happy to have won another of the coveted ExPsAs ribbons. Blind pigs and acorns, you know . . .

    Dr. Stuart, I think I misunderstood the puzzler. I thought you were asking for evidence of a geological pole shift in “the past”, rather than in the “recent past”. After hearing the current podcast, I realized my error. As an Archaeologist by training, I tend to think of the past as the distant past.

    Had I been paying better attention when you posed the puzzler, I would have been outraged at the thought that there are actually idiots out there who believe that a pole shift has occurred within historical time.

    I can’t claim that I would still have beaten Chew, etc. to the punch if I had understood the question in the correct context, but I like the ribbon, thank you, and I think I’ll keep it.

    PS: I’d log on via FaceBook, but WordPress makes unreasonable demands for information. I’ve complained to them before about this sort of thing, but they don’t seem to care. . .
