11 Aug 05 – Norwegian researchers at the University of Bergen have found underwater hot springs – hot enough to sustain coral – in the chilly waters of the Arctic.
4 Jul 05 – The tiny country of Tuvalu is not cooperating with global warming models. In the early 1990s, scientists warned that the Pacific coral atoll of nine islands – only 12 feet above sea level at their highest point – would vanish within decades, swamped by rising seas. Sea levels were supposedly rising at the rate of 1.5 inches per year.
Temperatures dropped an average of 1.23 degrees Fahrenheit per decade from 1986 to 2000.
