Sea level cannot be rising, that would prove global warming.
Therefore the island must have sunk.

Can't do a thing with him. He seems to think flea medicine is covered under the health care reform bill.

He watches some left wing poodle pundits on the Animal Channel.

Something out of a Terry Pratchett novel... Name of the novel is Jingo.

NEW DELHI – For nearly 30 years, India and Bangladesh have argued over control of a tiny rock island in the Bay of Bengal. Now rising sea levels have resolved the dispute for them: the island's gone.

Disputed isle in Bay of Bengal disappears into sea - Yahoo! News


I guess some good comes from everything. :lol::lol:

Oh my... Yet another classic case of Selective Rising Seas!

Apparently, the Bay of Bengal is able to increase it's mean level; without effecting the levels of any other body of water which is adjacent to it... most notably, the Indian Ocean; which it follows would realize rising levels in the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans... which would seem to require that the Gulf of Mexico would be on the rise and living on the Gulf; we just aren't seeing any signs of it.

But it is HYSTERICAL that some people would actually expect people to believe that one ocean could rise, wholly isolated from the rest of the planet's seas...

ROFLMNAO... you can't make this crap up kids...

Now since it's a certainty that rising levels didn't cause the Island to submerge; what then COULD cause it?

Hmm... Let's see... Could it be that the sea floor simply slipped lower?

:eek: Which naturally would be impossible; given that there's been almost no recent shifting of the earth's crust... I mean if there were; we'd have seen a major increase in earth-quakes recently...

So it can't be THAT! No no... Has to be a case of isolated increases in sea-levels...

LOL... But some people will no doubt BELIEVE IT! Proving once again; that some people are idiots.

Perhaps somebody stole the island?

Sea Level Rise May Sink Island Nations : Discovery News

Sea level rise from anthropogenic global warming could erase some island states from the face of the Earth -- but those nations could survive even without land, say researchers.

Governments and people of lost islands could survive "in exile," build structures to mark their submerged territory, retain their status in the eyes of other states and await the day when their islands emerge again when global cooling drops sea levels.

The trouble is current international agreements, including the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea, don't address the issue, said international law professor Rosemary Rayfuse of the University of New South Wales in Australia. Just what to do about the possibility of nations being lost, and how to do it, is very much on the frontiers of the legal thinking.

"From the international law perspective, it's fascinating," Rayfuse told Discovery News. "Ultimately, this is going to be a very serious problem."
