According to AeA, this is significant because only three states and Puerto Rico saw such a job increase in 2003, and Puerto Rico saw the largest increase of all of them. "Cyberstates 2005" shows that the high-tech industry is slowly rebounding throughout the nation as a whole.

According to atmospheric researchers from UCLA, trends in global warming may lead to a 20% decrease in summer rains in Central America and the Caribbean. As water availability is already a problem in parts of the Caribbean, if these predictions prove correct, drought and water rationing could become more prevalent in the future. J. David Neelin, UCLA professor of atmospheric and oceanic sciences, was the lead researcher on the project, and its results will be published in the April 18 issue of Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
