What's the connection between the Polar Vortex and the Pole's movement?

Recent news has been surfacing about the shift in our magnetic pole, namely the north pole. Some say it is a weakening before a "flip" or reversal.

So now we have a huge Polar Vortex happening and it seems like this is some kind of anomaly that can be explained by climate Shift, but I wonder what the connection to the magnetic field is?

So I did a little research and reading... here's some interesting articles. And as it turns out, magnetics *do* have an impact on the weather patterns as well!

( meh, this one says it's more magnetic/cosmic radiation responsible for climate change... I don't know about that...could be both manmade and solar radiation)

1. Magnetic field weakens, shifts and strengthens over time

We have historical records in the rocks showing the Earth's magnetic field weakens, shifts direction, then strengthens. We don't yet have a full understanding of the causes, but it is controlled by the Earth's core.

Climate change is unrelated, caused, over long history, by things like massive (really massive and long) volcano eruptions, and regular changes in the Earth's orbit.

Modern climate change is caused by humans filling the atmosphere with high concentrations of carbon dioxide.

2. I get it...

but at the same time, I wonder if the recent shift might also be part of this weather event... that's all

I agree current climate change is NOT part of the natural cycle of things, and that the magnetic field has shifted before and will again... but then again we have never had a magnetic shift with THIS much manmade climate crap (nor have we been around to experience it).

3. You are asking a legitimate question.

Maybe some scientist out there is studying whether there is a connection.

In theory, as the poles shift, the shape of Earth's magnetosphere should change, causing a change in how solar wind approaching some parts of Earth is deflected and how far out the deflection takes place. But I honestly can visualize how that affects climate, unless the changing pole location cause charged particles in the atmosphere to shift en mass.
