    Oceans are not rising any faster then before the supposed Global Warming scare started. I wonder where all that supposed melting ice went?

    Sorry, this page has moved or does not exist....

    1) Old news, there was a huge thread on this two weeks ago

    2) could just be erosion.

    3) Terry Pratchett handled the story better in "Jingo"

    4) Area is in the Ganges Delta. Water flow from that creates and destroys Islands all the time. Much as what happens with the Mississippi

    And the Chesapeake. Funny how those estuaries are...been engulfing and creating islands for centuries. But, let the ignorants peddle the fear with it while the rest of us just chuckle.

    Sorry the link didn't work, but since it's "old news" anyway, I'm sure everyone already saw it somewhere.
