Disputed Island Resolved By Global Warming

There has been a controversy between Bangladesh and India who wanted to control over a tiny rock island in the Bay of Bengal.

It has been going on for 30 years until lately the island named New Moore Island in Sunderbans has completely been submerged said oceanographer Sugata Hazra, a professor at Jadavpur University in Calcutta, India.

The rising sea levels have resolved the dispute for them now that the island is gone. Its disappearance has been confirmed by satellite and sea patrols. “What these two countries could not achieve from years of talking, has been resolved by global warming,” Hazra said.

Scientists at the School of Oceanographic Studies at the university have noted an alarming increase in the rate at which sea levels have risen over the past decades in the Bay of Bengal. Until 2000, the sea levels rose about 3 millimeters (.12 inch) a year, but over the last decade they have rising about 5 millimeters (.20 inch) annually, Hazra said.

Another nearby island, Lohachora, was also submerged in 1996, forcing the inhabitants to move to mainland while almost half of the land of Ghoranas island was underwater, Hazra said. At least 10 other islands in the area were at risk as well, he said.

“We will have even larger numbers of people displaced from the Sunderbans as more island areas come underwater.” Hazra said.

Bangladesh, a low lying delta nation of 150 million people, is one of the countries worst affected by global warming. Officials estimate 18 percent of Bangladesh coastal area will be underwater and 20 million people will be displaced if sea levels rise one meter (3.28 ft.) by 2050 as projected by some climate models.

India and Bangladesh both claimed the now underwater New Moore Island, which is about 3.5 kilometers long and 3.0 kilometers wide. With the disappearance of the island, the ongoing talks between two nations are at stalemate.
