So, think with me.
With what happens if we interfere with the magnetic field of a fridge magnet or a dynamo.
It might move, if another critical magnetic influence is exerted.
Solar flares disrupt the magnetic field, albeit slightly.
Therefore I think a huge and immense solar storm would certainly disrupt not only the Earth magnetic field and cause some "shaking" (earthquakes) but
it would also cause a physical shift of the poles.
I am not saying it will happen. Not even that it is likely.
Other stars have shown that huge flares are possible. Our Sun seems more peaceful, but we cannot dismiss that possibility. However from geological,
biological evidence, there seems to be no evidence of physical pole shifts.
Nearly all mass extinctions were caused by meteor impacts.
If pole shifts would happen, they would have to move the entire planet, not only a crustal displacement (because of the evidence of volcanic hot spots
being in same place for millions of years). And it would probably be so small or slowly, because as I said most mass extinctions were linked to meteor
impacts, so at most they would only cause minor extinctions. And again, I don't think a pole shift will happen. My concern would be more for social
changes, political changes, and climatic changes.
