Like Leaves On A Pond

9/9/2015

Assuming things continue much as at present, the Atlantic Ocean will expand until eventually it is much bigger than the Pacific. Much of California will float off and become a kind of Madagascar of the Pacific. Africa will push northward into Europe, squeezing the Mediterranean out of existence and thrusting up a chain of mountains of Himalayan majesty running from Paris to Calcutta . . . These are future outcomes, but not future events. The events are happening now. As we sit here, continents are adrift, like leaves on a pond.
