We’re all doomed I say.

And I’m not talking about Global warming here.

Wait a Mo while I put my tinfoil hat on.


Ok now that’s done, I shall begin.

You remember all those stories in the press in the last week of birds falling out of the sky? Well here’s the reason apparently.

Because the Earth's magnetic poles are shifting!

Last week, a report from the Russia's Ministry for Extraordinary Situations (MCHS) ( warned that the weakening Earth magnetosphere was allowing "poisonous space clouds" to enter deep into Earth's atmosphere where it is coming into contact with birds.

And further on in the article this came from:

The most likely explanation is that the birds were killed in-flight by changes in the composition of the air they were breathing. And as it turns out, Noctilucent clouds are largely made of a poisonous gas known as Hydrogen Cyanide. For all you chemists reading this, as the website explains:

Hydrogen Cyanide is also formed in interstellar clouds through one of two major pathways: via a neutral-neutral reaction (CH2 + N -> HCN + H) and via dissociative recombination (HCNH+ + e- -> HCN + H). The dissociative recombination pathway is dominant by 30%; however, the HCNH+ must be in its linear form. Dissociative recombination with its structural isomer, H2NC+ produces hydrogen isocyanide (HNC), exclusively. (

And of course if you believe that…………………….

  1. The magnetic poles do actually reverse from time to time. :)

  2. Yes they do that. It's the bit about those supposed poisonous clouds that amuses me, Noctilucent clouds are formed from WATER vapour.

  3. This sounds suspiciously like nonsense to me - as a professional chemist.

  4. Tufty. I agree. I just posted this to highlight the fact some people will believe anything.

  5. When FE took off his tinfoil hat, was it then a case of "the cat crept into the crypt"?

  6. The Bloody cat went off to eat even more of the food I supply him with. Bloody waster of an animal.

  7. I believe this 100%

    I trust our Politicians.

    We will have to accept whatever measures it takes to correct any problems!

  8. whatever measures it takes to correct any problems

    = more money coming out of my pocket. Whatever the problem. Whatever the "solution".
