Wisconsin is central to a number of changes that will leave the state unscathed in the main. Situated near the center of a large plate, the state will experience jolts with minimal aftershocks. Where the St. Lawrence Seaway will tear open, the tear will not directly affect the state or its boundaries. Mountain building will not occur, and the majority of the state will remain above water during the polar melts that follow the shift. Blessed with gentle rolling hills and rich soil, the state offers protection from high winds and the ability to garden. Nonetheless, few will migrate to this part of the world, due less to harsh winters than high taxes and restrictive pollution control rules that tend to dampen business and industry, which move where the political climate is friendlier. Thus over-population of this state is not likely to occur.
