Maybe you do not have an answer to my question, if not please do not post, acting as if i'm a retarded and a non-understanding individual.
You may have had a bad day and feel a need to take it out on someone.....this someone does not need to be me!!!
Oh but incase you have an answer...please by all means do post it.
You said (and I quote):
I have read about the changes that are to come in the world and how with the pole shifts ect ...alot of the worlds land will be under water according
to sea level. Does anyone know if there is a model of this anywhere online? I've read that the Mississippi river will expand and I would love to see
what the outcome of such would look like as far as land mass.
Your very first statement reads as follows: I have read about all the changes about to come to the world. Or at least that's how I read it, and thus
my tone in response. If you did *not* imply that sort of a meaning, then I whole-heartedly apologize.
Having said that, alot of these 'changes' are not supported by modern science, and as such any models that may exist are likely EXTREMELY flawed and
useless for your purposes. What I mean by this is, if the idea isn't supported by people with sufficient scientific knowledge, there will be nobody
to build the models.
Finally, which *specific* doom and gloom scenario would you like a model for (not saying you believe in the doom and gloom, just asking which one in
particular you would like to see the model for).. If you are looking for a combination of all the scenarios I will save you the time and describe the
outcome below (please note, the next portion is aimed at comedy and is not an attack):
First of all, all the polar ice melts due to global warming. This floods anywhere on the planet below 200ft above sealevel (which is a lot of the
planet).. NYC, most if not all of Florida and California, Seattle, Oregon, the Canadian Maritimes, Vancouver are all gone in North America alone.
Holand is under about 150 ft of water, and large portions of Europe are similarly innundated.
The Mediteranian merges with the Atlantic in a seemingly boundless combined ocean. Much of Asia is similarly submerged and a good portion of India is
now floating on the bottom of the ocean.
The change in salanity of the ocean from this water release results in a disruption of the steering currents that currently exists. As a result the
entire tropics (most of which are underwater now-anyway) unleash year-round mega-hurricanes with wind speeds in excess of 250MPH. This super-storms
tear far inland (the new shoreline, remember) and make the first 100 miles from the coast line unliveable for approximately 45 degrees on either side
of the equator.
Just when humanity adapts to this, the magnetic field of the earth breaks down, and we are all subjected to extremely powerful cosmic radition.
Cancer rates sky rocket to 1 in 3 or 4, and many people take to living very deep underground.
Just when we think it's all over, the poles suddenly shift, and massive earthquake ensue, causing cave-ins in most of the underground dwellings
killing a good chunk of what is left of the earth's population. Still more are killed by enormous tsunamis and volcanic explosions. The yellowstone
super-caldera goes off, killing many at the site of the new capital of North America. Africa is smashed back into India as a result of massive
techtonic slippage and the Indian ocean is gone.
This causes the earth to contract fairly noticably and days are now only approximately 21 hours long. An interesting side effect of the more dense
earth is it mucks up our orbital trajectory and we lose the moon. Another unfortunate side-effect is that our new orbal trajectory (slightly more
elliptical) causes us to be right in the path of one of the asteroids that has barely missed us in the past.
Four days later an asteroid the size of Texas smashes into the middle of Russia and vaporizes everything, raising the air temperature globally to a
point where all the water boils and Earth is left completely baron. No humans survive as all the underground dwellings were compromised during the
The three astronauts on the ISS after watching the last week, all decide that they can't bear it and open the hatch on the station, irradicating the
last trace of humanity.
A few billion years later the sun explodes, for good measure
