Earth’s magnetic North Pole is shifting at an accelerating rate from its earliest known position in northern Canada toward Russia. Scientists theorize that at the planet’s center is liquid magma rapidly circulating around an iron core and that the core and magma are constantly moving.
What can you infer from the information?

Earth’s geographic poles are at different locations than the magnetic poles.

Explanation

Since the magnetic North Pole is moving from Canada toward Russia, it is in a different location than the geographic North Pole. And since the magnetic North Pole is shifting, the magnetic South Pole must be shifting as well.
