What, if any, are the long term effects of solar flares hitting the Earth?
There isn't really any long term effects. Our magnetosphere deflects the charged particles from the solar wind towards the poles protecting all biological matter on Earth (it's these charged particles which cause the aurora borealis/australis when the particles react with the atoms in our atmosphere). If we didn't have a magnetosphere, it would be a whole different ball game.
But as the Earth's core will remain molten for a billion years or so, there's no danger of us losing our protective magnetosphere.
