How Earth Will look With Current International Borders in 250 million years
Pangaea Ultima (Proxima) could occur within the next 250 million years.
The Atlantic and Indian Ocean will continue to get wider until new subduction zones bring the continents back together, forming a Neopangaea. Most continents and islands are predicted to collide with Eurasia.
At 250 million years in the future, the Atlantic is predicted to have closed. North America is supposed to have already collided with Africa, but be in a more southerly position than it drifted. South America is predicted to be wrapped around the southern tip of Africa, completely enclosing the Indo-Atlantic Ocean. The Pacific Ocean will have grown wider, encircling half the Earth.
The map below shows how our planet will look with current international borders in the next 250 million years.
In general, the climate would have been more continental. Around the edges, it would have been similar to any other continent, with ecosystem type dependent on latitude and weather patterns.
Deep in the interior climate would have been much more extreme. Very hot near the equator, very cold in the winter in temperate zones. In some interior regions, it may have been pretty dry.

The border wall people aren’t going to like this.
That’s impossible we were suppose to be mostly underwater by the year 2000 accounting to the alarmist back in the 80’s … 35 years ago we only had 10 years to save the earth now we only have 12 … so this map is wrong it’ll be waterworld.
Interesting. DR Congo will be a short boat ride from my house.
Dakar and Reykjavik neighbours…interesting.
Opening up more road trips.
It will save on airfare flying to Europe from North America!
i will save money on my way to the Indian peninsula
