Cheerful News

Patrick just read my island poem and pointed out that many islands appear to be rising in response to the rising ocean water. If I remember correctly, the coral is simply growing upward.

And also per New Scientist, the glaciers in the Himalayas are not shrinking. This is very good news, since large populations in India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and China rely on water in the rivers that flow out of the Himalayas.
