New Moore Island in the Sunderbans has been completely submerged, said oceanographer Sugata Hazra, a professor at Jadavpur University in Calcutta. Its disappearance has been confirmed by satellite imagery and sea patrols, he said.
“What these two countries could not achieve from years of talking, has been resolved by global warming,” said Hazra.
The island was at the heart of a dispute between India and Bangladesh. Since it has pulled an Atlantis and disappeared into the ocean, I suppose India and Bangladesh will find something else to fight over. [via]
