North Is Changing Position by Forty Miles a YearMax Read · 02/22/11 02:49AM
Magnetic north is shifting! The place all compasses point to is moving from "near Canada toward Russia" at a rate of 40 miles a year, "about a one-degree difference in compass direction every five years." This is, of course, a massive pain in the ass for airports, pilots, boaters, and, apparently, turtles, who rely on magnetic north to migrate between Africa and South America.
