Islands Prove Earth Expansion and Declining Sea Levels

New Scientist: Shape-shifting islands defy sea-level rise.

For years, people have warned that the smallest nations on the planet - island states that barely rise out of the ocean - face being wiped off the map by rising sea levels. Now the first analysis of the data broadly suggests the opposite: most have remained stable over the last 60 years, while some have even grown.

The expansion is now a lot slower than it once was!

Trouble is, can it recur? Yes! Just a ? of timing. Lots more oil then!
