Sure you know about plate tectonics and plates sliding around the globe’s surface and subduction and mid-oceanic ridges.
But have you thought through the implications?
This is one of those lectures, that’s truly mind expanding for those who are interested in continuing to learn about our Earth.
Eventually I want to do some time-signature notes, but right now this is the best I can do.
I thought I’d share it here for those who like this stuff and
who have been paying attention to the development of geologic knowledge,
since it does require a certain degree of pre-understanding for these pieces to fall into place,
and develop their full bouquet (as they say),
with a head thumping:Oh WOW! . . . , … Why of course!

Mitrovica https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7oD3I7lYCRYHe's the same dude with that other mind-blowing, well okay - just mind-expanding - lecture explaining the impact of glacier's gravitational pull on sea levels and how that impacts globe sea levels.
