No editorial from the submitter (richanddead), but I'm assuming this article is in response to this post submitted by LaLaPancakes.
The Guardian article Lala submitted contradicts the Guardian article richanddead submits here.
"Many media outlets, including the Guardian, jumped to the conclusion that the islands were lost to climate change. But this largely misinterprets the science, according to the study’s author, Dr Simon Albert.
All these headlines are certainly pushing things a bit towards the ‘climate change has made islands vanish’ angle. I would prefer slightly more moderate titles that focus on sea-level rise being the driver rather than simply ‘climate change’,” Albert told the Guardian."
