We have predicted new land to emerge when the Antarctic Plate tips up between the tip of S America and S Africa, due to pressure from the compressing Pacific plates. This of course would have consequences for the Scotia Plate, nearby. The Scotia Plate is rising at the Sandwich Islands, being pushed down on the other side of the plate. This trend will continue, and thus that tiny strip of land at the tip of S America that rides on the Scotia Plate will lose elevation and sink below the waves during the hour of the pole shift.
