      Experts warn climate shifts are harming coral and other life around the
      world
      By Jaymes Song, Associated Press 5/3

      Whale Skate Island in the Northwest Hawaiian Islands was a tiny dot of
      land in the vast Pacific, about 10 to 15 acres in size. It was covered
      with vegetation, nesting seabirds, Hawaiian monk seals and turtles laying
      eggs. It no longer exists. "That island in the course of 20 years has
      completely disappeared" with rising sea levels, said Beth Flint, a
      U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service wildlife biologist for the Pacific Remote
      Island Refuges. "It washed away."
