On the Other Hand

With all the talk about the negative impacts of Global Warming I thought I would share this story, which should get one tick mark in the "Pros" column! Real estate speculators, get out your calculators...

Global warming creates an island

NUUK, Greenland April 24 (UPI) -- An island has separated from mainland Greenland because of global climate change.

The Independent reported that the melting of Greenland's ice sheetcaused what was once thought to be the tip of a peninsula on Greenland's east coast to separate from the mainland.

U.S. Geological Survey satellite photos confirmed the island's existence. American explorer Dennis Schmitt discovered the mass and named it Warming Island, the Independent reported.

Satellite photos show that the island was part of the coast in 1985, linked to the mainland by an ice bridge in 2002 and completely separate by the summer of 2005, the newspaper said.

It is an example of the melting of the world's second-largest ice sheet, after Antarctica, the Independent reported.
