Which parallel universe Earth is more appealing to you in terms of North American climates? Earth 1a: Canada is an ocean. Everything else is physically the same in the U.S. Earth 1b: U.S. and Canada do not have mountains. Basically flat throughout.

I'd go with Canadian Ocean. It might be silimar to the Cretaceous Period when there was a North American inland sea.

Lets be honest, the world would be a much better place if Canada never existed

Really don’t know how Canada could be considered a net negative.

I wouldnt consider those countries. I imagine they're like a madmax hell hole

If Canada and the US are completely flat the west and east coasts would be thousands of feet above the pacific and atlantic ocean.

Earth 1a more.

I hypothesize that if Canada was an ocean, the northern tier of United States would have milder winters and be more similar to Europe climatically. Climates wouldn’t be as extreme.

Earth 1b is also interesting. There would be a more gradual shift from marine/oceanic climate to continental climate in the United States and Seattle. In a sense, things wouldn’t be as extreme in this Earth as well, at least for United States and Canada. I would also be interested in seeing this Earth.

Still, Earth 1a is slightly more appealing to me.

I agree with you on 1a. What would be the effect of 1b on humidity in the central inland areas of the country?

That is a good question. I am honestly not sure. I might pose that for the next poll question.

Also, I noticed I said Seattle unnecessarily in the second post. lol
