Did Earth’s Magnetic field Reversals trigger Mass Extinctions?

During Earth’s magnetic field reversal, the field weakens causing oxygen ions to deplete considerably, as witnessed in all Mass Extinctions.
-ex.: “Triassic-Jurassic” mass extinction (200mya):
1. Reversal rate doubled
2. Amount of oxygen dropped (4.5/9% drop by geomagnetic reversals alone)
Theory may explain deadlier mass extinctions like the “Great Dying”.
