A University of Delaware researcher says the floating ice sheet covers 100 square miles — more than four times the size of New York's Manhattan Island.

Ice Island

It seems as if a giant chunk of ice has broke off of Greenland, this is the biggest chunk that has broke off in the Arctic since 1962. I wonder if the other cracks that have been noticed will mean that ther will be more "ice islands" breaking off in the near future? Is this caused by global warming?

It's kind of like the ice maker in my freezer. It makes ice....the ice breaks off....then it makes more ice.

I vote we get about 100 miles worth of fruit flavored syrup and make the world's largest snowcone!!!!!

How does a guy in Deleware know the ice sheet broke off anyway?

nothing to worry about people. just planet x aka nemesis coming. might experience some extreme temps . earthquakes. guatamola style sinkholes. katrina. rita sized hurricanes . insane hail storms. intence wildfires and food water shortages

Also of great concern was B-15 of the Ross Ice shelf when it broke of
in Antarctica.

It was 11,000 square kilometers, or the size of Jamaica.

en.wikipedia.org...


Iceberg B-15 is one of the world's largest recorded icebergs. With an area of over 11,000 km², it was larger than the island of Jamaica. Note that after almost a decade, parts of B-15 still have not melted.[1]


It has broken into smaller pieces and they are drifting around.

So this was the "good" ice breaking up. Already in water and not land based, like it slid into the Arctic Ocean?

Ocean levels not really affected by this one.

Another giant ice sheet broke away...

"Massive chunk of ice breaks off Greenland glacier"
voices.washingtonpost.com...


NASA's MODIS satellite sensor, which has a history of providing breathtaking shots of our planet, was at it again yesterday. A large -- approximately 97-square-mile -- chunk of ice broke away from the Petermann Glacier in northern Greenland. This new ice island (as seen in the image above just to the right of center) is the largest iceberg formed in the Arctic since 1962, according to a University of Delaware news release. It's about 40-percent larger than the District of Columbia.

Well that proves it guys!
Nibiru is picking ice off of greenland before it comes into view for some reason.
Also planet x = planet nemesis = star
Which is it?

BIG announcement of ice breaking off Greenland?

Odd how they never talk about the glaciers that are GROWING! This among many others in the Northern Hemisphere.

26 July 10 - Berlingske Glacier is (supposedly) the only glacier in northwest Greenland that steadily grew over the past 100 years, says this article by Lars Henrik Aagaard. Yes, grew. "Its length has increased by almost five kilometers (three miles) in the period."

3 miles in 100 years compared to about 100 miles of glacier breaking off.
Yeah, looks like the problems solved guys!

My point is there are others growing but NO one ever puts that out there for folks to see. They only want us to see the "warming" side of it. Unbalanced! It's all about doom and gloom. The real doom lies ahead when the "warming" is over and the cooling comes.... and it will come, it always does, so enjoy the warmth while you can.

List of growing glaciers!
