Sounds like Antarctica has an attitude which will need adjusting with a couple of mega-tonnes of freedom and democracy.

Any recession of ice from Antarctica is UNPRECEDENTED...
newsfeed.time.com...

If you’d visited Antarctica 50 million years ago, you could have lounged beneath swaying palm trees and enjoyed balmy 68-degree weather.

Yes, seriously. Drilling off Antarctica’s east coast has revealed fossil pollens that came from a “near-tropical” rainforest that once covered the icy continent, AFP reports. Analysts estimate that the lush forest thrived throughout the Eocene period, some 34-56 million years ago. The new findings corroborate the 2010 discovery of turtle bones — which also indicated that Antarctica was once home to a much warmer, lusher climate.


Uh, obviously this lush rainforest on what is now an ice shelf was the product of DGW (Dinosaurpromorphic Global Warming).

Melt Water washes away the base of the ice against the land/rock, and the ice slumps and slides away when it has no support from below.

The melt water running beneath the ice acts like a lubricant, and the sheer weight of the ice causes it to slump.

Most of the results of climate change we cannot see.

We'll find out...

We'll burn them until they're icy cold again!

...AKA "blind faith" in the religious world. Ironically one of the preeminent criticism of religion by the same scientific Waldos begging us to buy into their overlord's AGW ponzi scheme.

We need a glass 5000 feet tall and 8 million gallons of scotch.

Problem?

Solved.

Definitely an investment I can get behind (and swim in).

If the area of the potential iceberg is 31,000 sq miles, it is closer in size to South Carolina (32,000 sq miles) than Rhode Island (1,500 sq miles).
They weren't wrong in stating that it would be larger than Rhode Island, but it isn't the best comparison.

That's a big iceberg , I wonder how many bottles of melt water would could make out that puppy.

Anyone own a really big tug boat?

or maybe it the fohn winds, which are prevelent over larson shelf C in the spring?

www.upi.com...



In 1995, the Larsen A shelf collapsed. In 2002, Larsen B did the same. Scientists believe the collapse was triggered by crevices and cracks that were widened and deepened by the flow of surface meltwater. Researchers hypothesized that foehn winds melted the water flowing through the cracks. Researchers found foehn winds frequently blow across the Larsen C ice shelf, the continent's largest ice shelf. The winds blow year round but are most common in the spring. "What's new and surprising from this study is that föhn winds occur around 65 percent of the time during the spring and summer," Jenny Turton, a researcher at BAS and Leeds University, said in a news release. "Whilst a high number occur in spring, the combined warming over a number of days leads to much more surface melting than was experienced during days without föhn winds." Melting and refreezing makes the ice shelf's surface more vulnerable to future melting.


Did it never occur to you that mother nature might be responsible for a change?

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.


Your video has piqued my curiosity.

Something about the globalists using HAARP to force Antarctica to melt so they can murder half the planet and make a run for their breakaway civilization.

You have to admire that kind of creativity as a conspiracy theorist.

Conspiracy Theory is ART.

I don't agree that it's unprecedented, at one time Antarctica moved, via continental drift, from near it's current position, upwards into the southern shore of Australian and then reverted to a polar location when the Southern Ocean opened up.

Not the greatest video but if does show the suspected path it followed:

The jokes are all good and many funny!

These types of glacial 'floating' fissures happen...it's called "nature".

Antarctica has had them let loose the size of Vermont, Artic regions similar.

We are a but a flash in the pan as far as climatology is concerned...we are just learning.

Turns out it is a cycle...wow.

Geothermal heat would cause that, not so much atmospheric conditions.

If you swap put "climate change" with "Jesus" you sound like a religious nut.
