She reaffirmed the long-standing facet of U.S. foreign policy: that the United States is – and will continue to be – an Indo-Pacific power. “We are also expanding our navy-to-navy relationship with Sri Lanka, with our first-ever naval exercise set for October,” she said. “Already, American companies operate across the region, supplying everything from bottled drinks to airplane parts. In India alone, over 600 American companies have contributed to a 500 percent increase in FDI over the past two years. We are partnering with South Asian countries to develop legal and regulatory regimes that encourage transparent FDI, build resilient energy infrastructure, and connect budding entrepreneurs with the resources they need to develop their ideas. As President Trump and Prime Minister Modi underscored during their June summit, both India and the United States are committed to bolstering regional economic connectivity through transparent infrastructure development and responsible debt financing practices,” she added.She also commended the progress in BIMSTEC and hopes agreements on electricity grid connectivity and transport can be finalized before the next BIMSTEC Summit.“While the region offers unprecedented opportunity, it is also confronting a myriad of security challenges, including terrorism, transnational crime, trafficking-in-persons, and illicit drugs,” she added. “For more than seven decades, we have embraced the responsibilities this distinction requires across this vast expanse, from the shores of East Africa to the western coast of the Americas. This will not change in the decades to come,” she added.Wells said if South and Southeast Asia reduced non-tariff barriers by 50 percent – an ambitious but attainable goal – increased intra-region trade would net $568 billion in increased GDP by 2030. The United States says it hopes to expand the navy-to-navy relationship with Sri Lanka.US Acting Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asian Affairs Alice G. Wells told delegates at the Indo-Pacific Regional Architecture Indian Ocean Conference 2017 in Colombo today that Sri Lanka and the US will hold the first-ever naval exercise in October. Wells noted that to combat these challenges, the United States has sought to improve intelligence-sharing among regional partners and improve capacity-building in areas like community policing, counter-narcotics, aviation security, and forensics analysis.

“Nutrient availability along with, and as a consequence of, rising temperatures and drought, may also have a direct effect on body size. Drought conditions have been known to lead to smaller offspring.“This suggests that dwarfing will be a likely natural response of some mammals to future global warming.”The research was published in the journal Science Advances. Evidence of mammalian dwarfing during the largest warming event on record, the Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum (PETM), is already well-documented and some creatures shrunk by as much as one third as temperatures rose between 5C and 8C.But the impact of less extreme ancient global warming events on animals has remained unclear until now. The animals shrunk during a warming period similar to what we are experiencing today Credit:University of New Hampshire The researchers analysed tooth enamel from mammalian fossils collected in the Bighorn Basin of Wyoming including Arenahippus pernix, an ancestor of modern horses. The teeth provided information on ingested water and consumed vegetation as well as acting as a proxy for body size. The authors propose several warming-induced mechanisms that could have caused the mammalian dwarfing, including lower nutrient availability.“Body size change during periods of climate change is commonly seen throughout historical and geological records among mammals and other organisms,” added Dr Ambrosia. Animals could start shrinking because of global warming, scientists have predicted, after discovering that mammals became ‘dwarfed’ in a similar episode of climate change 50 million years ago.Paleontologists discovered the fossil teeth belonging to an early ancestor of modern horses as well as a rabbit-sized hoofed mammal.The teeth revealed that during Eocene Thermal Maximum 2, a warming event of around 3C that occurred approximately 53.7 million years ago, the animals shrank in size by 14 per cent.Climate researchers currently estimate that the planet will warm between 2C and 4C by 2100.
