The Earth's core stopped spinning and may now be in reverse

Awww and here I was hoping this would mean the Earth's actual rotation was going to reverse. I was so up for watching the sun going up in the west!

Well then,  what generates the magnetic defense against solar radiation and what generates gravity, I though a spinning core alhas a major influence on these two factors?

Earth' s magnetic feild is generated by the liquid flowing outside of the core, not the core itself.

“There are two major forces acting on the inner core,” Yang and Song said in an email to Motherboard. “One is the electromagnetic force. The Earth’s magnetic field is generated by fluid motion in the outer core. The magnetic field acting on the metallic inner core is expected to drive the inner core to rotate by electromagnetic coupling. The other is gravity force. The mantle and inner core are both highly heterogeneous, so the gravity between their structures tends to drag the inner core to the position of gravitational equilibrium, so called gravitational coupling.”

“If the two forces are not balanced out, the inner core will accelerate or decelerate,” they added. “Both the magnetic field and the Earth’s rotation have a strong periodicity of 60-70 years. We believe that the proposed 70-year oscillation of the inner core is driven by the electromagnetic and gravitational forces.”

Seems like the earth rotates at about 1000 mph to get us around 24000 miles in 24 hours. The atmosphere must also travel at that base speed plus or minus local winds I think.  It would seem that  if the earth stops, the atmosphere is going to keep going until friction with the   earth's surface slows it down.  So your joy might be cut short by 1000 mph winds.  Just a thought.:D

I vote for flaming apolocypse winds in 2024

Oh man, I might get a good apple crop in 2024.  Lets hold off for a few seasons.
