Earth’s landmasses were not always what they are today. Continents formed as Earth’s crustal plates shifted and collided over long periods of time. This video shows how today’s continents are thought to have evolved over the last 600 million years, and where they’ll end up in the next 100 million years.

    Notice that:
    20 MYA there was no ice in North America
    2MYA there was ice down to about Colorado
    Now there is little ice, trending toward no ice in North America …again

    No modern humans 20 mya. Nobody to care. Not even at 2 mya.
    Context: humans to Colorado-10,600 radiocarbon years BP at the Lindenmeier site.

    George Carlin was right when he said that we can’t harm the planet with our shenanigans, we can only make it impossible for us to live here.
