Scientists predict a change of poles as is evident a number of times before from crust samples. The poles are decaying and it means earth quakes, volcanic activity and danger from particles in space, such as to sattelites. But during such an event when there is an interim and perhaps when there are numerous poles, might the solar wind and coronal mass ejections blow away some of the atmosphere, giving the Earth a tail like Venus?

Are we losing gas, polar change by polar change?

I'm not aware of polar exchanges causing earthquake or volcanic activity but there would be a temporary increase in danger from radiation in some random areas.  The fact that we still have our atmosphere, after having gone through many previous polar exchanges, suggests that it isn't lost when one occurs.
...And its claws are as big as cups, and for some reason it's got a tremendous fear of stamps! And Mrs Doyle was telling me it's got magnets on its tail, so if you're made out of metal it can attach itself to you! And instead of a mouth it's got four arses!
