In April’s monthly paid Q&A with Penny Kelly (author of Robes and numerous other books). One of the participants asked Penny about the best place to move in light of coming earth disasters. I have read three of Penny’s books, I enjoy her perspective and respect her gifts that she is sharing with the planet.
She replied that it is good to move to the Southwest USA: West of the Mississippi and south of the Mason-Dixon line. She said it’s good to be on the North American Craton as it’s a large plate with not a lot of fractures on it. Although she also said we have some time yet – a year or two would be alright. The craton stays solid, and Canada stays solid.
So that made me curious – and what/where the heck is the Mason-Dixon line? Turns out it’s a line drawn by astronomer Charles Mason and surveyor Jeremiah Dixon in the 18th century.
Then I took a look at where the North American craton is located:
The craton is the part of the North American continent that has been stable for over 600 million years. This region is made up of a basement older Precambrian metamorphic and igneous rock that is mostly covered by a relatively thin cover of younger sedimentary rock. There are numerous cratons around the world; geologists call these long-stable continental cores, cratons.
Lastly, I tried to put these two together to map out the area that Penny Kelly is recommending as most likely to be stable geologically during upcoming earth upheavals (earthquakes, north-south poles flipping positions, etc.). This is what I came up with:
I’ve cued up the Q&A vid to the place where Penny is asked this question and gives her answer:
