Clue/Question:  For the Marshall Islands, the rising sea level was – – –

Poverty Rate in the Marshall Islands - The Borgen Project

Answer:  TAKING ALLOT  “ATOLL”  (Thanks, Merle, then Liz!)

(Waaay out in the Pacific Ocean, somewhere between Hawaii and The Philippines, lie the Marshall Islands.  They are a chain of volcanic islands, and they’re in a peck of trouble.  They’ve been experiencing a significant rise in the sea waters, averaging 7mm a year since 1993.  Some of the islands already face the risk of permanent flooding.  Maybe someone should tell them to:  “Use the Force!”???  That will help . . . NOT!

All of today’s clue words are high and dry though.  They all reside comfortably on the ralis95 clue word database.  Three of the jumbles appear to be wet behind the ears, with only “yetliv” having strong Jumble legs.  The answer letter layout was an elusive eleven letter jumble.  It did a fine job of submerging the final answer.

Fine cartoon of a high school, or college, classroom.  The dais/lectern might indicate college level.  They can overlay a map over a photo, and all kinds of things using the computers.  I just can’t make out that small inset at the top right corner.  Fun Friday Jumble, with a message!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    There’re probably thousands of inhabited islands in the Pacific whose populations are in dire need of moving before their home bcomes inhabittal.

    There may not be enough time to reverse Global Warming and Sea-Level rises.

    Atoll is what I got.

    I think you meant Taking ATOLL

    Thank you, Merle! My answer technically works, but yours makes MUCH more sense! Time for a correction. — YUR

    Wow! Yet another smart cookie calling me out! LOL! Thanks, Liz. I need to make my correction before another one comes.

    I got atoll since that’s what they are. And there were quote marks

    You’re absolutely correct, Jess. I should have made the connection, but I guess I was a little off my game, this morning. I was seeing a pun on “A LOT” . . . even though that really didn’t make much sense. The letters just fit, and I ran with it. Apologies.

    Thanks, Bob! The correction was made yesterday around 4:00PM. — YUR

    “Atoll” was also what I got, Unc.

    I was surprised when it suddenly jumped out at me. They don’t usually come out so willingly.

    Tell me, lwc. Do you see that I corrected it? I’m not sure how subscribers see it. — YUR

  12. 12 lwc May 9, 2022 at 4:10 pm

    Yes, I saw when you made the change. “atoll” is not a common word we landlubbers have occassion to consider.

  13. 13 unclerave May 9, 2022 at 8:15 pm

    It’s not uncommon though. I just saw “allot” first, and ran with it. I know it’s not a Jumble clue word, but I think my brain thought there must be only one word using those letters, and I didn’t think to look for alternatives. — YUR
