In a nutshell: The sun has and will again produce a
solar storm the likes of which isn't seen for thousands of
years. When this storm, or shall I say typhoon, occurs, it
totally compresses the Earth's magnetosphere to the point where the
lines of conductance actually touch the surface of the planet.
This has three main effects, the first is that all metal on the
planet will start to induct a current, with large metal pieces or
long wires inducting significant voltages. The second effect
is that the earths core, being most likely an iron/silicon alloy
will induct enormous amounts of electrical current from the
disruption of the magnetosphere though the blasting solar
wind. This extra induction will transfer into heat, which will
cause the core to spin more rapidly and to perturb the mantle with
shockwaves and turbulence. Additionally, the heat will cause
expansion, especially at the poles. The third effects comes
from the combination of the first two, and that is that the crust
will separate from the mantle and while floating on a newly created
'lubrication layer', will allow the global mass imbalance that
currently exists to try to rectify itself. Of course this will
be catastrophic for all living things on the planet.

I will maintain this site as a dialog between myself
and whoever is kind enough to take the time and see if I'm
"yet-another-crackpot" or on to something.
