Island uncovered by retreating Greenland ice (http://www.ananova.com/news/story/sm_2291294.html).

Everyone believed Warming Island was part of the massive island of Greenland. Then retreating ice uncovered that it was apparently a peninsula connected to the mainland, then the ice retreated further and it became apparent that the landmass in question was an island.

And here I sat thinking that we wouldn't discover more islands in the year of 2007. Global warming proved me wrong:p.

I'm not going to let this brand new itty-bitty island get out of my reach and prevent my plan to create a small nation from starting up. I don't want Greenpeace to take over this island and create a brand new government like it did last time (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rockall#Waveland_and_the_Greenpeace_occupation)...

I hereby establish the "Warming Island" provisional government, to be the offical rulers over Warming Island. I claim Warming Island as my own. Consitution forthcoming. (Yes, I'm serious...)

Good luck. Sealand off of the UK faced invasion, you know.

But sure, if you want to go through the enormous hassle of creating your own country, go right ahead. I'll eagerly await your results;).

Is it for sale? More importantly though, have they found the pyramid beneath it?
