There is an island in the Solomons that won't have to worry about the so-called affects of AGW at least until the alleged rises in sea-level reach over 3 metres.
That is because the recent earthquale has lifted the island right out of the water.Â
The pristine underwater reefs of Ranongga Island, in the western Solomons, used to attract divers from all over the world. But the quake has permanently changed the island's geography, according to an Agence France-Presse (AFP) reporter, who said the shoreline now extends out to sea by another 70m in places.Â
Go figure only a Frenchman could report that something that wasn't there before and is now isÂ a permanent change.Â
