BBC radio programme Costing the Earth was recently broadcast claiming that the Cartaret Islands were being submerged by rising sea levels. This claim just does not fit the evidence, however. While there is no doubt that the islands are suffering by inundations of sea water, the reason for this is because the islands are SINKING as they sit on top of a subduction zone. Sea level monitoring records on either side of the islands show clearly that there has been no rise in sea level.
