Scientists have discovered a crack in the Earth's crust that threatens to pull North America and Europe closer together and cause the Atlantic Ocean to vanish in about 220 million years.
Researchers at the University of Lisbon have created a new map of the seafloor, off the coast of Iberia -- the region of Europe that includes Portugal and Spain -- and the results show the beginnings of a new subduction zone.
National Geographic reported on the new data surrounding the subduction zones, and what could happen when the tectonic plates -- the large rock slabs that make up the Earth's crust -- crash into one another.

If the Eurasian plate cracks, the oceanic section will dive beneath the continental section causing the Atlantic Ocean to shrink and pull North America and Iberia closer together
Obama will cure this problem by stuffing in a hamster,
I, for one, aren’t too concerned about 220 years from now. I don’t believe I’ll be around.
220 million years?
I’ll be in a nursing home by then.
We can solve this. I propose we break California off and tow it to the Atlantic and sink it over the crack.
Perhaps we can sell AlGore on the idea?
so don't sweat a couple of centuries.
Obama is making America closer to Europe every single day. Another year or two and we will be speaking French, or is Arabic the national language there now?
the whole deal sucks
Better get out the super caulking gun. Our separation with Europe needs to be increasing, not decreasing!
On the bright side; all of the Lefties on the East Coast will be subducted first.
You’re right. Now I “really” am not concerned.
NOW are we ready to stop driving our SUV’s?
Maybe the United States is starting to tip over because of all the illegals in the country!
key phrase - “in 220 million years.”
Jesus will have come back long before then and restored the earth. sorry to dissapoint everyone.
” I propose we break California off and tow it to the Atlantic and sink it over the crack.”
I like that idea.
Say “no” to crack.
I believe Uncle Joe is better qualified on the installation of... plugs.
Where’s Obama’s kid to ask, “Daddy did you plug the leak?”
Someone better tell Al Gore. He says the east coast of the American continent will be under water from ice cap melting and climate change flooding. So one fear-monger predicts flooding by the Atlantic; another doom and gloom report says the Atlantic will fall into a crack and disappear (who knows where it will go). Take your pick if you want to worry.
