Mas sive Crack in Antarctic Ice Shelf Grows 11 Miles in 6 Days, Potentially Creating World’s Largest Iceberg


In the six days before President Trump announced his decision to withdraw from the Paris Agreement on climate change, an enormous crack in an Antarctic ice shelf grew 11 miles, according to a report by British Antarctic research group Project MIDAS.

The crack, which is located in Larson Shelf C, leaves only eight miles of ice connecting what could be one of the world’s largest recorded icebergs to Antarctica. When it eventually breaks free from the continent, the resulting iceberg will measure 31,000 square miles, represent 10 percent of the ice shelf’s original mass and be larger than the state of Rhode Island.

The growth spurt between May 25 and May 31 was the largest they have observed since January, Project MIDAS says, and the inevitable splintering of Ice Shelf C will drastically alter the landscape of the continent and will make the ice that remains less stable. The group states that although this specific crack was not likely caused by climate change, the disintegration of Antarctic ice shelves contributes to rising sea levels that threaten coastal cities.

Did the spurt happen because of natural deterioration or was their an outside factor like an earthquake?

IMHO, politics and science have been doing a tango for quite some time now.

What I'm wondering is what were all of those important people doing visiting Antarctica recently. My conspiratorial mind makes me think that this is more than a coincidence.

Well, we know what it isn't.

If only Trump hadn't pulled out of the Paris Accord.
Now the giant 'Iceberg of Death' is going to kill poor people, minorities and children.

Is there any correlation with the microwaves coming from Antarctica?



Yeah i know it's Youtube but it's completely ignored by the news outlets. Go figure.

Maybe somebody got an idea reading Michael Crichton's 'State of Fear' book.

Had a part where radical left-wing environmentalists placed charges every hundred miles in order to break off a huge iceberg. They were synchronizing a bunch of climate events to garner more support and funding for some type of climate agreement.

Hmm...

I like it. Was there a super-villain in charge, like a Dr. No?

Not particularly. It was more like a bunch of environmental extremists, politicians, scientists fudging numbers to get more funding, and some billionaires with agendas. Very good read, tears the whole climate change hype to shreds.

It's interesting that when I was growing up as a child, I remember lots of news of icebergs been spotted all the time on the coast of the US.

Then they kind of disappear, I wonder why, now we are to start seen them again?
