America and Eurasia 'to meet at north pole' (in 50-200 million years.)
BBC News ^ | 2/8/12 | Neil Bowdler - BBC News

America and Eurasia will crash into each other over the north pole in 50-200 million years time, according to scientists at Yale University.

They predict Africa and Australia will join the new "supercontinent" too, which will mark the next coming together of the Earth's land masses.

The continents are last thought to have come together 300 million years ago into a supercontinent called Pangaea.

Details are published in the journal Nature.

The land masses of the Earth are constantly moving as the Earth's as tectonic activity occurs. This generates areas such as the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, where Iceland has formed, and areas such as that off the coast of Japan, where one plate rides over another.

Geologists believe that, over billions of years, these shifting plates have driven the continents together periodically, creating the hypothesised supercontinents of Nuna 1.8 billion years ago, Rodinia a billion years ago, and then Pangaea 300 million years ago.

The next supercontinent has already been given the working title of Amasia, as it is expected to involve the convergence of the Americas and Asia.

We had better start lifting the edge of our plate now. I want Asia subducted under North America and not the other way around.

Just as likely that Neal Adams is right and they’ll move further apart - http://www.nealadams.com/nmu.html - the “Expanding Earth” hypothesis.

Or that the late Tom VanFlandern was right and the whole bloody planet will explode, leaving nothing but a new ring of asteroids.

“Scientific” certainties bug me no end...

So what. Long before that would happen the Earth will be hit by a huge Asteroid or Comet which will wipe out all life on this planet.
