UK better than US?

We're finally going to resolve whether it's color or colour? Maybe debate the usage of "guy" and "bloke?"

Nothing so exciting, instead it's the UK vs. US contest in who can create the world's largest marine protected area.

The US is currently in the lead with the great conservation president George Bush's Marianas Trench Marine National Monument and the Pacific Remote Islands Marine National Monument that includes areas around Kingman Reef, Palmyra Atoll, Howland Island, Baker Island, Jarvis Islands, Johnston Atoll, and Wake Island.

The UK is considering a marine protected area in the Chagos Archipelago in the Indian Ocean (photo above right).

Check back later for the final score...
