Plate tectonics essential for life

Plate Tectonics and the Origin of Life

This long article, brought to my attention by a reliable source, reviews the thesis that plate tectonics is essential for the evolution, if not the origin, of life. It covers many topics but is mostly concerned with how the Earth's crust started moving. And when did it start?

And is there plate tectonics on other planets - research possibilities are endless!
