Will the world after the Pole Shift still have economic and military super powers? Which country will dominate?
The factors to consider are many, and still within the hands of man so not precisely predictable. First, there is the devastation of the Pole Shift, with subsequent flooding of lands to the 675 foot level above the present day sea level. This wipes out half of Russia, flooding its current heavily populated areas near Moscow. But Russia has already set out to position itself in the Far East, moving its populace and infrastructure there. This wipes out India, but it has already arranged to partner with Russia. This wipes out a quarter of the central US, but the US has already moved to the Denver area.
Second, consider which countries today are an economic or military super power. A strong economy gives the country a skilled workforce and funds to proceed if it needs to relocate. The US is both an economic and military super power, thus Denver will be a future Power Center. Russia is both thus the Far East will be a future Power Center. China is likewise both and will be a future Power Center which we estimate will be as close to the new Equator as possible. Germany likewise has both, and Europe has highlands which Germany will dominate, so Germany will be a future Power Center.
The UK will be devastated by the pending European tsunami, but their elite plan to seek refuge in Australia so they will move their war ships and armaments to Australia, which will thus be the new Power Center for Britain. Turkey lusts to return to the days of the Ottoman Empire, and given the amount of weaponry scattered about in the Middle East, will be a military power, thus a new Power Center. We have often mentioned that S Africa will be literally invaded by former colonial powers wanting to land grab Antarctica and the new land to emerge nearby after the Pole Shift. Thus between the wealthy elite and hired mercenaries S Africa will be a new Power Center.
What of the lands in S America? The rising sea level after the Pole Shift wipes out half of S America but this is not the determining factor. S America does not have an economic or military giant that would qualify a S American country. It will remain essentially a Third World continent. Canada has vast lands but a small population, and will be absorbed by the US. Alaska may become a point of conflict between the US and Russia, and may be ceded to Russia if the Chinese join the fray, pushing across the Bering Strait to take control of Alaska.
The former Russian satellite countries above India do not in and of themselves have an economic or military power, and will be ruptured by the new inland Seaway we have predicted to rip up through Persia to the Ural Mountains. This will disrupt travel by rail or roadway. Europe will become a series of islands and the populace will likely migrate south to Africa, as will Israel. Iraq and many Arab countries will be devastated by exploding oil fields, which will rob the ruling class of their wealth. They will thus return to being Bedouins.
