It’s got to be hard to deny the planet is warming when an island is submerged by rising sea levels…right?
“For nearly 30 years, India and Bangladesh have argued over control of a tiny rock island in theBay of Bengal. Now rising sea levels have resolved the dispute for them: the island’s gone.
New Moore Island in the Sunderbans has been completely submerged, said oceanographer Sugata Hazra, a professor at Jadavpur University in Calcutta. Its disappearance has been confirmed by satellite imagery andsea patrols, he said.
“What these two countries could not achieve from years of talking, has been resolved by global warming,” said Hazra.”
“Bangladesh, a low-lying delta nation of 150 million people, is one of the countries worst-affected by global warming. Officials estimate 18 percent of Bangladesh’s coastal area will be underwater and 20 million people will be displaced if sea levels rise 1 meter (3.3 feet) by 2050 as projected by some climate models.”
