One of the biggest icebergs in recorded history just broke loose from Antarctica

That's a lot of martinis.

So what is hidden inside or better what is underneath the iceberg? The crack looks artificial to me and not just formed by nature. I'm highly suspicious of everything that comes from that place in particular.


Looks like things are about to get very interesting.

I am going to start a petition that the UN formally designates this new land mass as 'Covfefe'

Look at it - it even looks like it should be called Covfefe.

"Where are you going for your holidays Garry?" .......... "I'm heading off to Covfefe with the missus and kids for a week in the snow, Johnno"

Covfefe - it can be a real place, then we can tax it and put a McDonalds on there - and a petrol station and pub.

I sincerely hope you people realize that this ice is not pure water. It's snow that's been building up for thousands of years and in consequence with that snow fall comes all the crap that is in the atmosphere at that time.
As for the glacier this is just normal. If you don't know glaciers are moving forward all the while. They creep forward till the leading edge reaches a temperate zone where the higher temperature creates holes, cracks and tunnels till the front just falls off. This just happens to be a bigger piece because it's a bigger glacier and if you want to wait around for a couple more hundred years you will see the same thing again.
As for the ice shelf that is dependent on the ocean currents for its movements. Who knows the currents may drive it back onto the pack.

Sea ice hits record lows


Persistent warming trend and loss of sea ice are triggering extensive Arctic changes

It's a Trumpberg, clear as a white snowflake. Don't make me help you remember that.

Btw is it moving or is it just sitting there for all eternity? I feel like this could tie in VoL's tweets about USO's and alien underwater bases. Come on world give us the happening of a lifetime.

It's moving otherwise the crack wouldn't have kept growing. With as massive as this thing is, it will take years, perhaps decades, to melt.

It will keep swirling around down near where it is following the vagaries of the ocean currents.

So theoretically this massive piece of ice and snow could now show up anywhere in the world? Could be interesting to follow this thing around and to watch where it will end up.

No, not now.

Now, it could show up close to where it is, depending on the ocean currents.

Don't worry it cant teleport and just show up on your front door step.

The further north it moves the quicker it will melt.

Yes, very interesting.

Like I said, it moves further north, starts to rapidly melt and releases large amounts of fresh water into the sea.

Something that size could really make a change in the ocean environment which in turn effects everything else.

However, I think before it starts drifting North if it will, companies will use the ice for fresh water. 80% of all fresh water on earth is frozen in Ice glaciers.

hmm, you know, I actually think that could make an interesting experiment. Why not?? I bet there is alien technology buried in it somewhere, and that some governments will be maintaining an exclusion zone around it until they recover what they want.

wasn't talking about arctic sea ice but about ice volume on Green-LAND




While we were celebrating our Independence Day on July 4th, Summit Station in Greenland may have experienced the coldest July temperature ever recorded in the Northern Hemisphere at -33°C (-27.4°F). Much of Greenland has been colder-than-normal for the year so far and has had record or near record levels of accumulated snow and ice since the fall of last year. The first week of this month was especially brutal in Greenland resulting in the record low July temperature and it also contributed to an uptick in snow and ice extent - despite the fact that it is now well into their summer season.

Is the Antarctica treaty still in full effect when the landmass moves out of the protected zone?

I think you are right. Enterprising folk won't let a chance at a good profit go to waste.

RSOE EDIS is showing climate events on both ends???...Interesting.

Are there any pics?

You'd think with the biggest iceberg ever there'd be at least a public satellite pic...

Please share pics.


I hope they put some timelapse cameras onto that iceberg and see the daytime, night-time, the sun and moon moving across the sky, blizzards move across, the weather and ocean waves as well as all the animals that make use of it.

Maybe this could be claimed as a international artic research base. Add propulsion to it or tow it to peice of the artic ocean and then anchor it. voila permanent research base for artic exploration of the ocean there.

Antarctic Iceplorations.

Ok, who's up for a kickstarter to take control over this State of Snowflake? Experience how things melt away and be the first to drown! That's quite the bucket of ice challenges for mad hashtags right there. Literally cool way to go as well.

It will take years and years to melt in the artic.
