Godaddy recently made waves by taking their anti-.tv rhetoric to a new level by including a hover blurb stating “the island nation of Tuvalu is sinking” and recommending other extensions.
Is .TV going away? It’s possible, but unlikely.
I’m not worried about .TV going away. Tuvalu may very well be threatened by global warming, but smarter people than I will need to determine that for sure. According the the New Zealand Climate Science Coalition that “fact” is under debate:
A tide gauge to measure sea level has been in existence at Tuvalu since 1977, run by the University of Hawaii It showed a negligible increase of only 0.07 mm per year over two decades It fell three millimeters between 1995 and 1999.
