It's hard to believe that Bermuda wasn't always a vacation paradise, but since the island lies about 600 nautical miles from the U.S. East Coast, it was once a strategic military outpost for Great Britain. During the American Revolution and the War of 1812, its proximity to the young American nation made it an ideal spot for Britain to station troops and deploy arms. Once nicknamed the Gibraltar of the West, Bermuda was the Royal Navy’s Western Atlantic headquarters for many years.

Arctic ocean acidification. Between the 1990s and 2010, acidified waters expanded northward approximately 300 nautical miles from the Chukchi slope off the coast of northwestern Alaska to just below the North Pole. Also, the depth of acidified waters was found to have increased, from approximately 325 feet to over 800 feet (or from 100 to 250 meters). This threatens marine life.
