    Next time they come calling I think we should offer to repair their corral … with a hydrogen bomb. It works.

    Still looking but cannot find an upload of a documentary called “Return to Bikini” ( probably Discovery Channel ) where they analyze the islands and their corral reefs and you cannot helped but be stunned by what mother nature is capable of when left alone, even after thermonuclear testing..

    NOTE: that clip is NOT from the documentary I am looking for. It appears to be ripped from the excellent “Trinity and Beyond” narrated by Shatner.

    It’s worth remembering that the Pacific Islands were being populated during the Roman Warm Period. So many gullible fools around today.

    Half a world away in the tropical Pacific Ocean a similar saga unfolded. During the Greco-Roman climatic optimum, the Polynesians migrated across the Pacific from island to island, with the last outpost of Easter Island being settled around A.D. 400 (35).

      Those peoples had to have been the greatest mariners of all time.

        Actually whoever came and mined all the copper in the UP of Michigan, and fueled the Bronze Age would get my vote for the greatest mariners, and navigators.

    If coral can’t be destroyed by an atomic bomb, I’m pretty sure it’s safe from “global warming”.
