Our life if Pangea never broke apart.

Millions of years ago, the Earth look very different. A huge landmass called Pangea, is covering almost a third of our planet. But, about 175 million years ago, the Earth broke apart into continents, and formed the world we know today.

But, what do you think would happen if it never happened?

Where could our countries be located?

How different would our lives today?

In this article I am going to share to you my analysis on what would happen if Pangea did not broke apart.

If Pangea still existed today, in a theory, you can make a drive from California to England, since they are part of the same landmass.

And although you may only think of Pangea as just another piece of land, it would be much more than that.

It played an integral part in Human and and animal evolution. If Pangea hadn't broken apart, you may not be here today.

But, let's assume it didn't and that we survived and evolved to a people we are today.

What would be the Earth be like?

First, lets see where your country would be located.

North America will move down a little bit to south, Europe would be a lot closer, just to the East. Asia would be up north by Russia, and Antarctica would remain down the South.

India and Australia would be further south connected to Antarctica.

These countries that used to have hot climates, would now be covered in ice and snow and would be cold. But those wouldn't be the only environmental changes. Regions in the middle of Pangea would have lush rainforests along their borders. And as you travel further inland, it would become a dessert. This is because of Pangea's landmass being so huge. Rain which comes from the ocean wouldn't be able to travel far enough to inland, leaving parts of Pangea practically uninhabitable to human and other species.

The weather in the North would be different too. With Russia being much warmer than it is today.

But weather would not be the only thing that would change. On Pangea, we might have less diversity of species.

The species that on the top of the food chain today would most likely remain there, but some of today's animals would not exist in Pangea. They wouldn't have a chance to evolve. Fewer animals might make it easier to travel.

And on this modern version of Pangea, you would probably want to do a lot of it. Luckily, you would not have to go far. If you live in Florida U.S.A., you'd be right next to the Carribbean Islands, Venezuela and Brazil. In just a day you can visit all of them.

And, if you live in Nova Scotia, Canada, you would be driving distance from France, England and Germany.

Although this might sounds like fun, a lot of countries would have new neighbors. Which could cause some serious issues for some.

Places like the United States which used to have oceans on both sides of the country, would now have Africa on its East cost. If these countries didn't get along, things could get ugly.

How much easier would it be to start a war in another country if they were just a short way drive? Transfering weapons, people and supplies would be a lot faster and cheaper if certain countries were right next to each other.

Or none of this would happen if the entire world would be more unified than ever?

With all of us sharing the same landmass, maybe we would learn to treat each other just a bit better than what we do now.

Maybe if we all live in one country, something like this would happen.
