North Magnetic Pole Moving East Due to Core Flux

Recent studies have discovered that the North Pole, currently near Ellesmere Island, is picking up speed in it's race to emigrate to Russia. In 1904 it was determined that the pole was moving in that direction at 15 kilometres per year, but picked up speed some time before 1989 when it was determined that it was now moving at 60 kilometres per year. The most recent study puts it's speed at closer to 64 kilometres per year. It is believed that the magnetic field is a result of the Earth having an iron core surrounded by a rapidly-moving molten metal layer.
