You're right, "inconveniences" such as the absence of a magnetosphere which would allow solar particles to pass right through and reach Earth itself, leading to the sterilization by ionisation of the surface of the Earth.



They'd hit the ionosphere and be stopped, for the most part. You'd get amazing aurorae.

Field reversals and mass extinctions don't correlate in the fossil records.

They already have machines that can make O-ZONE. You can find them online anywhere. It creates a greyish blue smoke.



Wasn't he the black guy in The Incredibles?

Another plus;
With no magnetosphere there would be no geomagnetic storms. No grid breakdowns.
Yay!

There would be some global increase in cosmic ray secondaries, such as is seen in polar regions now. A slight increase in cancer incidence perhaps.

How would you have aurora without a magnetic field?

Because the charged particles from the solar wind get bunched up by it and follow it.

That is the lines you see, a visual representation of the earths magnetic field.

I guess the whole sky might glow some but nothing like an aurora.

Follow the field lines into the upper atmosphere because near the poles the field is perpendicular to the surface. But you're probably right about it being a general glow.

But it would be on the day side only, so you wouldn't be able to see it anyway.
