The breakup of Pangaea influenced the distribution of continental landmasses, ocean basins, and oceanic and atmospheric circulation patterns, which in turn affected the distribution of natural resources, landforms, and the evolution of the world’s biota. Reconstruct a hypothetical history of the world for a different breakup of Pangaea – one in which the continents separate in a different order or rift apart in a different configuration. How would such a scenario affect the distribution of natural resources? Would the distribution of coal and petroleum reserves be the same? How might evolution be affected? Would human history be different?
