I'm wondering if there are any peer-reviewed studies exploring the possibility that the weakening magnetic field is causing rises in Earth's temperatures? My reasoning is that since the northern zones of the Earth are warming at an accelerated rate compared to the southern regions of the Earth, this has a correlation with the fact that magnetic north is moving and the magnetic south is beginning to strengthen ala allow for more ultraviolet shielding, and a crackdown in defenses in the arctic magnetic north effect. Always a possibility? I mean studies get funded for less, I think a study should be funded to pursue this avenue - it could quite possibly put an end to a lot of fears of anthropogenic global warming.
