It is natural to wonder what the world will be like in the future. And one of the things I wonder about is the landscape itself. Mountains are among the most awesome features of our landscape. There is greatest importance about which spots on earth are the highest. The reality of geology, even within a short time frame, becomes apparent in the relative rise of the highest mountains among each other. Rates of mountain rise and erosion can be calculated (within a range of error) for each of the world's highest mountains. Based on this, it believe a reasonably knowledgable geologist could answer this question (or already has). I can't do that calculation myself but I would be very interested in the results.
