Asteroid Impact in Greenland May Have Triggered Pole Shift

According to many pole shift researchers like Charles Hapgood, Greenland has an ice cap because in both our current orientation (since the last pole shift almost 13,000 years ago) and in the previous orientation of the Earth’s surface (when the North Pole is believed to have been near Hudson Bay – explaining the North American “ice age” while Siberia was warm) – Greenland was close to the pole, in Arctic conditions, for both world ages.

The nagging question is – what caused the pole shift?  I have leaned towards the growing imbalanced mass of ice caps that don’t accumulate exactly on the center of rotation – for example, today’s Antarctic ice cap has roughly 19 quadrillion tons of ice, centered about 340 miles away from the South Pole.  The centripetal tangential forces from this push the crust here away from the pole – towards the equator.  Someday the balance of forces that still prevents a pole shift may change, possibly triggered by a weakening magnetic field and a cosmic event like Dr. Paul LaViolette’s “galactic superwave.”

Other researchers, like Graham Hancock, believe that a comet impact was the trigger of the last pole shift and climate changes.  Some new evidence suggests he may be right:

“We report the discovery of a large impact crater beneath Hiawatha Glacier in northwest Greenland.


From airborne radar surveys, we identify a 31-kilometer-wide, circular bedrock depression beneath up to a kilometer of ice. This depression has an elevated rim that cross-cuts tributary subglacial channels and a subdued central uplift that appears to be actively eroding. From ground investigations of the deglaciated foreland, we identify overprinted structures within Precambrian bedrock along the ice margin that strike tangent to the subglacial rim. Glaciofluvial sediment from the largest river draining the crater contains shocked quartz and other impact-related grains. Geochemical analysis of this sediment indicates that the impactor was a fractionated iron asteroid, which must have been more than a kilometer wide to produce the identified crater. Radiostratigraphy of the ice in the crater shows that the Holocene ice is continuous and conformable, but all deeper and older ice appears to be debris rich or heavily disturbed. The age of this impact crater is presently unknown, but from our geological and geophysical evidence, we conclude that it is unlikely to predate the Pleistocene inception of the Greenland Ice Sheet.

In other words, an asteroid may have made a huge crater in Greenland during the Pleistocene, and possibly ended that age by initiating the pole shift, the end of the North American “ice age” and the Pleistocene Extinction.

  1. Why would the mass of ice at the poles build up to a destabilising amount coincident with half a great year?
    It wouldn’t be predictable. It could take 6,000 years, perhaps 20,000 – who knows?

    Unless, as you suggest, there is another metronome such as a LaViolette superwave every 12,000 years that liberates the crust – which is bizarrely resonant with the precession of the equinoxes.

    It would also result in a 90 degree pole shift, if the ice caps were truly the driving force.

    • I agree that if ice alone were the cause, timing would not be predictable because the buildup would vary each time.

      Ice caps alone would also cause a 90 degree shift.

      I suspect that a weakened magnetic field temporarily eliminates viscosity and friction in magma, and reappears and ends a pole shift before the ice cap makes it all the way to the equator.

      Another event, perhaps a cosmic one, would have to change the balance of forces in our crust, and we suspect the timing of such an event causes or is synchronized with the precession cycle.

POLE SHIFT: Evidence Will Not Be Silenced

Evidence suggests that pole shifts are both magnetic and geophysical, with a periodic cycle of recurring and predictable cataclysms involving huge earthquakes and tsunamis, changes in latitude and altitude, mass extinctions, and the destruction of civilizations, reducing them to myth and legend.
