the magnetic field still exists. It's twisted and convoluted, with
north and south poles popping up in some really odd places until
things settle down again, but it is still a magnetic field, and still
offers protection. In a way, it might be fun! It would be a blast to
be sitting on a beach in Tahiti on a warm, tropical night, sipping a
drink with a little umbrella in it, while watching the dance of aurora
light high overhead.
If the magnetic field were to vanish altogether for a time, we do have
one thing in our favor. We have active volcanos constantly
replenishing the atmosphere. The main effect might be purely
biological. We would have to take precautions against solar
radiation, especially during periods of high solar activity.
