4. The folks at Google have really outdone themselves with Google Earth.

To think that was all above water during the last ice age.

Thanks for that, Ghost Dog. This ruling is important above all because it gives Argentina increased authority to stop illegal fishing along the continental shelf by the British, the Chinese, and others. It will also impact certain oil exploration plans going forward.

As the article mentioned, it doesn't address the Falklands/Malvinas dispute at all; but it does make the western half of the 200-mile "economic zone" Thatcher illegally decreed thirty years ago illegal. Not that anyone expects them to abide by laws (heaven forbid).
