Goodbye New Moore Island

As the temperature rises so do the oceans- not just from the melting icecaps but also from thermal expansion of all the water in them. On the other hand, this is solving some international disagreements.

India and Bangladesh have argued over possession of New Moore Island (South Talpatti to Bangladesh) for 30 years, but they don’t have to any more. The island is now submerged.

Yesterday I was drawing a view, as from space, of India and its neighbours. Let’s hope it isn’t out of date by the time it gets published.
