Global Warming is upon us

Sure a UN conference is coming up soon, and sure the media are rabid in stockpiling ammuntion.
But could it be true that the end is nigh?

Pacific islanders move to escape global warming
Reuters - Mon Dec 5, 4:36 PM ET
MONTREAL - Rising seas have forced 100 people on a Pacific island to move to higher ground in what may be the first example of a village formally displaced because of modern global warming, a U.N. report said on Monday. With coconut palms on the coast already standing in water, inhabitants in the Lateu settlement on Tegua island in Vanuatu started dismantling their wooden homes in August and moved about 600 yards inland.

In unrelated news. Here is some more simple single-mindedness from Young Guns 2005. I've yet to find a good, simple, single-minded ad about the dangers of global warming - but if anyone can track one down, let me know!

If you visit the church west of the Creative Wonders office, you'll see a fascinating photo of that building 100 years ago - right on the waterfront. The rest is reclaimed land. Will Blogger Mike soon face the same fate as the islanders of Tegua? I do hope not.
