Sounds Like a Bad Turtledove Book--You Know, If Any of His Books Weren't Bad

How unlikely is this Apocalyptic political prediction? The (Kinda) Midwest becomes a part of Canada? Is this an insult? The Carolinas stick with the East Coast? California swallows up Idaho, Arizona, and the West Coast? (Okay, maybe.)

This "scientist" has not done his geographical and historical homework on the United States. I think the Carolinas would DIE before joining the northern remnants of the union. And if anything, the Midwesterners, overly polite people, would scare the Canadians, even more overly polite people, into submission.
