How The World Would Look Now If The Continents Never Separated


Here’s what the world’s countries would look like today if the Earth still had only one super sized continent, Pangaea. The United States would really have to consider Morocco and Mauritania as our next new states.

Pangaea is only the latest supercontinent . It is one of several that has occurred . Rodinia formed over the south pole covering a large portion of the southern hemisphere. It was leading factor in causing a glglobal glaciation referred to as " Snowball Earth " . As it broke apart it released massive amounts of greenhouse gases that caused the Earth to warm . This radical climate change led to an explosion of life. ( actually , there were several global glaciations . )

The East Coast being so close to Africa disturbs me.

A cruise from San Fran to Italy would have been awfully long and boring, unless you really like water. Doesn't look like a whole lot of ports along the way.

I was not finished . The second supercontinent Gondwana also had major affects on climate and life . If Pangaea had not broken apart ( which is impossible ) life as

we know it would not exist ! Geologic forces cause climate change by changing ocean currents , distribution of heat , the chemistry of earths atmosphere and water. Climate also effects geology . And life , in all its forms , effects both climate and geology . The interaction of these processes creates the ever changing conditions the allowed life to form and evolve . Now throw in the interactions of Earth within the Solar system , the Galaxy , and the universe and you realize that humans are just a product of chance .

@XTall Yeah, there's a bigger picture in the link, and looks like The Wall should lay just about across the border between Russia and Ukraine.

That's certainly one theory. Another would be that the odds were so long that there must have been something guiding the process.
