The lowlands of present day Finland are reminiscent of Doggerland --
before it was finally submerged by rising sea levels about 8000 years
ago. [Note: This is within the same time frame that the lands of the
legendary Garden of Eden (at the head of the Persian Gulf) were
submerged & the fabled 'Noah's Flood' aka 'Black Sea Deluge'
"Doggerland" is a name given by archaeologists and geologists to a
former landmass in the southern North Sea that connected the island of
Great Britain to mainland Europe during and after the last Ice Age."
In another couple hundred years, coastal regions around the world
will be in a condition similar to Doggerland and the Finnish lowlands.
One only has to look at currently exposed coral reefs sitting well
above sea level and inland in Florida from the last interglacial
period to be aware of that.The variable in the time line is the level of
increased greenhouse gases which are accelerating and amplifying the
current process of global warming. The only real 'unanswered
question' is whether or not 'methane hydrate gasification' will become
a self-sustaining cycle.
