Episode #259: The Path of the Pole - Part 2

Part 2 of our deep dive into Charles Hapgood's book, The Path of the Pole. This week we cover more of Charles' ideas on how the crust may have moved catastrophically, as well as the possible evidence for drastically different arrangements of continents in the distant past, such as evidence for large glacial masses in what are now tropical areas in India and Africa.

  1. I like Hapgood's theory for an explanation for all the anomalies he's found like tropical animal fossils in land inside the Arctic circle. But I understand everyone's skepticism that the crust of the earth could move and in geologically short timeframes.

    The best theory I've heard is that its not the geographic pole that determines cold climate, but rather the magnetic pole. It posits that the magnetic field where it forms the poles exposes that area to the extreme frigid temperatures of space. The magnetic poles are known to travel, where the geographic poles are not, so perhaps that explains how there were times in the past when areas now ice covered were covered in vegetation and animals without requiring that the land itself migrated to a warm location.
