    George W. Bush is planning to create the world’s largest oceanic protected area in the Pacific as part of a bid to improve his record on the environment before leaving office. In an attempt to protect pristine coral reefs, rare fish and underwater volcanoes, Mr Bush will mark out an area spanning 195,000 square miles in the Pacific Ocean as a trio of “marine national monuments,” a spokesman said. The areas include the Mariana Trench and northern Mariana Islands, the Rose Atoll in American Samoa and a chain of remote islands in the Central Pacific.
    This is a California sized area.
