    Eh... we've made it 200,000 years so far... and that is in our current incarnation. Other Homo variants that were capable of reproducing with Homo sapiens date back at least 500,000 years.

    I suspect Homo sapiens or some genetic descendant will still be around in 150,000 years.

    ,
    You have to think Nahiu, Hana, and Kaupo. You know closer to the Hawaii, (the Big Island).

    It would be interesting to see what it would be like in 150,000 years. IDK though, the rate we are going I think we'll take ourselves out before then, if a natural disaster like Yellowstone doesn't first.

    I think I have found former President Obama. It appears he is in Hawaii checking things out, just look close:

    You get a free drop from a lava flow?

    You have to find and retrieve your ball otherwise it is considered lost.

    Obviously you're not a serious golfer. Small hazards are expected on a golf course. A four or five iron should clear that hazard.

    I will defer to your superior knowledge of hot air.

    They are all volcanic islands, all formed by the same "hot spot". Hawaii is now over that "hot spot" and continues to be formed. It will continue with that process until it moves off of the "hot spot".

    Then, another island will be formed.

    Yes - but outside the island of Hawaii and maybe Haleakala on Maui (last erupted over 200 years ago)... they aren't on the hotspot anymore.

    It's already doing so - the Loihi seamount off the the SW of the big island shows that. It appears likely that the island of Hawaii is more over the edge of the hot spot.

    ...or maybe just seamounts, depending on the output of the hotspot and it's rate of shift.

    It will likely be more islands, that is it's history.

    200 years ain't squat in geologic time.

    Those islands are in a continous state of movement, along with all land masses on the planet.

    The Earth just rambles along as it pleases. We can't stop it, we would not want to if we could. We just have to learn to live with it, and realized, that IF we chose to live in certain "danger zones", we have a good chance of getting bit.
