It seems global warming is good for something after all. New Moore Island, a tiny rock island in the Bay of Bengal, had been claimed by both India and Bangladesh for nearly 30 years.
Years of negotiations have failed to settle the dispute of who own the island, and now it doesn’t matter. Because the island is gone!
Yes, it is GONE!
Rising sea levels have completely submerged the island. Granted the island was only about 3.5 km by 3 km, but for it to be completely submerged was still something else.
On the bright side, no one will be stupid enough to go to war over an island that’s underwater (touch wood). So it seems global warming is good for something after all.
