Instead of relying on the I-net or a Garmin, what does your compass show in relation to your chart?

Could just be a cyclical event in the millenniums of time caused by friction within the earths crust which would account for higher period of earthquakes which the world has been experiencing.
The tilting of the axis, and it's agreed to by just about all scientists, has tripled since 2005 from it normal yearly rate. Many believe it is a result of a shift in the earth balance caused by a loss of over 600 billion tons of glacier ice melt each year. Ice melts to water and distributes evenly across the oceans whereas ice is a static weight. There has been at least two shifts in tilt, one in 1850 and one in 2005. The tilt had been moving south up to 2005 but suddenly since then is now shifting east at three times the previous rate.
If you want some interesting reading check out the Chandler Wobble.
i know it’s 2 separate things, as I said, the magnetic was reported along with the tilting. As far as the ice melt causing the tilt, it’s a question of what came first, the tilting or the melt. Either way, we’ll never really know. Everyone will have an opinion depending on their agenda.

Oh shit. Now I literally don't know which end is up. I feel lost in my house. Maybe if I wrap myself in tin foil it will all go away.

I just want to know if my tin hat will still work?

I'm not a climate change nut but some things are indisputable, the earths axis is shifting, the earths magnetic field is declining, and the earths core is slowing.
All have been measured and acknowledged by just about every scientist in this field.
Maybe it's just events that are cyclical on the geological time scale, who knows but not tin hat stuff.

Tin and aluminum foil hats will still work. However, they can only protect so much from radiation and if the failing magnetic field allows more radiation then it might be a losing battle.

Hats made of ferromagnetic materials though (even if just trace alloys), might cause a torque on the head and neck caused by the changing magnetic field direction. This may cause you to walk in circles or become disoriented. Please replace these relics with non-ferromagnetic materials at the earliest opportunity to avoid further problems.

They work very well in lighting storms also.....try it and get back to us with the video....

Yep been going on for 4B years but this time it's because of CO2 emissions.

This is the stupidest thing I have read in a long time. Hope you are just trolling:

Here is a picture of a cemetery near a project I am working on and I noticed that in the older NW corner most of the older grave sites are not on the same angle as the NE and southern plots. Maybe not connected to the subject at hand but I thought it was worth noting as this is a very old cemetery.

Not trolling, it might do you some good to read about this subject and you wouldn't attack someone for posting about the subject.
There is agreement about the axis shift and about the core rotation. For you to dispute these facts is the stupidest thing.
And yes, many scientists believe it is caused by a shift in the pole center of gravity, and further agree that is has occurred in the past.
I didn't say I agreed or disagreed with it, I'm merely stating what has been printed in hundreds of scientific papers.
I referenced the Chandler Wobble which might help you see what might be going on.

Good luck convincing some of the crowd here about science. Where I am now, sitting above the arctic circle in Greenland, the land below my feet is actually rising because of isostatic rebound (meaning the ice has melted off the land and its like a giant weight has been removed and it is regaining its height) Its actually rising faster than the rate of world wide sea level rise. That is why so many countries spend the money for static GPS stations around the world to monitor this. And yes the mag pole is shifting, its more of a concern for our pilots up here vs those in lower latitudes.
