A crack that opened up in Ethiopia in 2005 is widening and expected to become the base of a new ocean in a million years, when the Red Sea starts pouring into it.  Before then, though, I think people are going to start pouring into it when it's wide enough and build there, because that's what people do with flood areas.

It is a new ocean in the making, but be careful calling it 'oceanic' it is not made out of the right kind of rock to be 'oceanic'(Basalt)

Yeah, that's what I keep saying, too. I had to show Inconvenient Truth to a class, and when we were done, I pointed out the flaws in his logic, especially about Katrina.
