I'm starting to think the earth's magnetic field is due to rotation and circulation of the atmosphere, which in turn is due to solar heating and the Coriolis effect.

The notion that there is plasma at the core of the Earth astounds me.

What is the current thinking of real, live physicists on this extraordinary proposition?
