It is happening on earth and has been underway for quite some time.  Runways have had their compass settings / headings updated frequently as of the past 20 years that I am aware of.  Magnetic North has shifted drastically and the shift is accelerating.  The fields are also weakening, leaving us vulnerable to solar and other forms of radiation.  I just know this off of the top of my head.

It also has an effect on climate, but as we all know science says that all the changes we are worried about are caused by man, only.  The cycles of the sun and other natural cycles have no effect on this they keep saying as the science is settled.

The CNN source you linked above is in direct conflict with NASA's findings about climate change and the poles shifting as you have already noted below.  I did not click on any links before posting this.  My bad.  I just read what was already posted and discussed.

How could NASA "hide" information which is available to any astrophysicist or astronomer?  It's out there - NASA does not control it.  Why would NASA hide such information - what would be their motivation?  "Dependence on political factions"?  Are there political powers that are secretly reversing the Earth's magnetic polarity and don't want anyone to know?

PLUS, who are CNN, anyway, lol. From their cited study:
We use ancient New Zealand kauri trees (Agathis australis) to develop a detailed record of atmospheric radiocarbon levels across the Laschamps Excursion. We precisely characterize the geomagnetic reversal and perform global chemistry-climate modeling and detailed radiocarbon dating of paleoenvironmental records to investigate impacts. We find that geomagnetic field minima ~42 ka, in combination with Grand Solar Minima, caused substantial changes in atmospheric ozone concentration and circulation, driving synchronous global climate shifts that caused major environmental changes, extinction events, and transformations in the archaeological record.
While NASA is a natural authority doesn't always make them right at any event, me thinks. But who are we to navigate a jungle of scientific studies?

THE SUN'S MAGNETIC POLES ARE DISAPPEARING:
The sun is about to lose something important: Its magnetic poles.

Recent measurements by NASA's Solar Dynamic Observatory reveal a rapid weakening of magnetic fields in the polar regions of the sun. North and south magnetic poles are on the verge of disappearing. This will lead to a complete reversal of the sun's global magnetic field perhaps before
the end of the year.

If this were happening on Earth, there were be widespread alarm. Past reversals of our planet's magnetic field have been linked to calamities ranging from sudden climate change to the extinction of Neanderthals. On the sun, it's not so bad.

"In fact, it's routine," says Todd Hoeksema, a solar physicist at Stanford University. "This happens every 11 years (more or less) when we're on the verge of Solar Maximum."

Vanishing poles and magnetic reversals have been observed around the peak of every single solar cycle since astronomers learned to measure magnetic fields on the sun. Hoeksema is the director of Stanford's Wilcox Solar Observatory (WSO), that is observing its fifth reversal since 1980.


          The last five polar field reversals observed at the Wilcox Solar Observatory (inset)

"One thing we have learned from these decades of data is that no two polar field reversals are alike," he says.

Sometimes the transition is swift, taking only a few months for the poles to vanish and reappear on opposite ends of the sun. Sometimes it takes years, leaving the sun without magnetic poles for an extended period of time.

"Even more strange," says Hoeksema, "sometimes one pole switches before the other, leaving both poles with the same polarity for a while."

Indeed, such a scenario could be playing out now. The sun's south magnetic pole has almost completely vanished, but the north magnetic pole is still hanging on, albeit barely.

How does all this effect us on Earth? One way we feel solar field reversals is via the heliospheric current sheet:


         An artist's concept of the heliospheric current sheet.


The sun is surrounded by a wavy ring of electricity that the solar wind pulls and stretches all the way out to the edge of the Solar System. This structure is a part of the sun's magnetosphere. During field reversals, the current sheet becomes extra wavy and highly tilted. As the sun spins, we dip in and out of the steepening undulations. Passages from one side to another can cause geomagnetic storms and auroras.

Most of all, the vanishing of the poles means we're on the verge of Solar Maximum. Solar Cycle 25 is shaping up to be stronger than forecasters expected, and its peak could be relatively intense.
