|Crater, page 20 of Chesapeake report.|
Distrust ecopoliticians painting good and evil on a simple canvas. The earth is still rebounding from the recent ice age as a mile thick layer of ice melted from Canada. Ten thousand years ago, native people were migrating from the Prince Rupert area (through what is now the 100 ft deep Hecate Strait) to the Queen Charlotte/Haida Gwai area on foot. Tectonic plates are grinding into each other and slipping past as one rises and one falls. The study referenced by the chart even found a hitherto unknown but enormous meteor impact by the mouth of Chesapeake Bay which is still altering the land's response to the sea. Worldwide you can see drowned coastlines (like the fjords of Norway and the west coast of BC) and emerging ones with lazy deltas and flats. Not that long ago, the Thames and the Rhine emptied into the same bay and the settled areas of Doggerland in the North Sea (once the heart of Europe) subsided below the sea.
