Although there were many news reports that the island has appeared, they were false. As a low lying island, it is totally submerged during high tide. People who reported that the island has disappeared saw it during high tide. The fact is that the island is still there.

Kinda funny they're blaming it on global warming... when the island "appeared in the seventies." ><

When everyone was complaining about global cooling.

Totally unrelated, but might I add I like the new opinion board format?

It was probably really destroyed by attrition. That's what happens to small islands, as sea levels fluctuate over geographic time, small islands get ground down. Just look at the trail of seamounts behind the Hawaiian islands leading all the way northwest to Kamchatka Peninsula, Russia.

Indeed.

"You two couldn't share the island; so now NO-ONE gets it!"

It's the proven way of sorting out arguments.

Why did they have to argue over it anyway? I'm sure there would be scientific interest, but from the point of view of a sovereign state it's a lump of rock in the middle of nowhere. The study of such is something for the international community, leaving the claims being for the valuable deposits of... eh.... rock?
