South Pacific Olympians in Danger!

This might be the first and last Olympics for athletes from Tuvalu, Kiribati and Nauru, Pacific Islands whose shores are being encroached by higher and higher oceans, all as a result of Anthropogenic Global Warming.

Planet Ark reports: "For a handful of South Pacific athletes it may be now or never to take part in the Olympics because rising seas levels are causing their tiny island nations to sink and maybe one day disappear."

Kaboom sez: "That sea-level off the reef at Tuvalu looks bally high, doesn't it?"

Makes you wonder how their Marathon Olympians train properly, given the land area.
