Earths magnetic field

Recently research showed that an anomalous "hole" in the magnetic field of Earth is gradually growing and moving.  The fact is that the magnetosphere surrounding the Earth is a real trap for protons and neutrons and, which does not allow streams of cosmic particles to approach the Earth. As the magnetic field is perhaps the main reason that life is generally possible on our planet, what will happen if the hole destroys the magnet field? Is it actually possible?

No, it's not really possible, it is just moving and getting slowly bigger at altitude.

Yes the fact that the magnetic north pole is shifting south at a rate of knots in my opinion is of greater concern than global bullshit warming and covid put together .It's funny how the media ignores this fact.

just saying

For many who read this, the implications are not all obvious. When magnetic field shifts, so too the magnetosphere blocking ionising radiation. If you imagine magnetic line moving to equatorial area, this will be like opening a large gate for the solar wind. If movement is changed due south, in 100 years will be at the equator:-

 

The north pole is moving at a dangerous pace • Earth.com

"At the beginning of the 20th century, the magnetic north pole was located in Canada. In 2000, it was in Greenland. And now, almost 20 years later, the magnetic north pole is currently en route to Siberia, moving eastward at about 40 kilometres per year. And with the Earth’s magnetic field prone to reverse its polarity, the Earth and our technology could be at risk for major disruption."

 

But luckily at the moment, the axis is not towards equator.
