Welp i was made to erase my article i found so now i will simply say that the piece of ice floating around is a sure sign of bad things to come its over a hundred miles accross and floating freely in the ocean destination unknown........

I dont know about an ice age but its deffo a sign that climate change is real
thank you skeptics.

it appears this is going relatively ignored keep in mind its a hundred miles accross and thats the surface this is the size of where i live long isla takes three hour or so from one end to drive to the other a really really big ice cube roaming the ocean it should be center stage and its being totally overlooked

Here's a good video about what's going on in Greenland ice wise.

I don't get it, the ice melting means a new ice age?

Isn't that the opposite?

Massive areas of ice have been breaking away all throughout the history of there being ice at the poles... This in it's self means absolutely nothing as far as 'global warming' goes.

Who's going to be the first to show a picture of a polar bear taking a breather on an ice flow and scream the THE SKY'S FALLING IN!!!!!!!!

Thermohaline Ocean Circulation
www.windows2universe.org...


According to this theory, the influx of fresh water shut down the normal cycle of the thermohaline circulation, effectively turning off that current system in a very short time. As we've mentioned, the thermohaline circulation brings warm, tropical waters northward towards the Arctic and sends cold, polar waters southward. A disruption of this flow would dramatically alter regional, and possibly even global, patterns of heat transfer. The theory claims that this shutdown temporarily plunged at least some parts of the Northern Hemisphere back into peak "ice age" conditions. Eventually, the flow from Lake Agassiz subsided, and the thermohaline circulation re-established itself.

CLIMATE COLLAPSE
The Pentagon's Weather Nightmare
The climate could change radically, and fast. That would be the mother
of all national security issues.
By David Stipp

aaronherres.com...


A total shutdown of the ocean conveyor might lead to a big chill like the Younger Dryas, when icebergs appeared as far south as the coast of Portugal. Or the conveyor might only temporarily slow down, potentially causing an era like the "Little Ice Age," a time of hard winters, violent storms, and droughts between 1300 and 1850. That period's weather extremes caused horrific famines, but it was mild compared with the Younger Dryas.


en.wikipedia.org...

Causes of the Younger Dryas
The prevailing theory holds that the Younger Dryas was caused by a significant reduction or shutdown of the North Atlantic thermohaline circulation in response to a sudden influx of fresh water from Lake Agassiz and deglaciation in North America.[13] The global climate would then have become locked into the new state until freezing removed the fresh water "lid" from the north Atlantic Ocean. A recent alternative theory suggests instead that the jet stream shifted northward in response to the changing topographic forcing of the melting North American ice sheet, bringing more rain to the North Atlantic which freshened the ocean surface enough to slow the thermohaline circulation.[14] Neither theory explains why South America cooled first.

This paradox is absolutely amazing to me. To think that all of that freshwater melting/dumping into the Atlantic due to warming could cause an Ice age is incredible.
Hope for the best, prepare for the worst.

It's been years since anyone disputed the fact that climate change is occurring. What's up for debate, is whether or not the current climate change is a result of human actions, which the evidence disputes.

So yes, the climate is changing, but no, we didn't do it. Mars is heating up too, but my SUV has nothing to do with it. Nor does my SUV have anything to do with the fact that Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune are heating up. If you can believe it, not even the increase in average temperature of Pluto is man made!

Thanks for that, I didn't know about it.


But I think that the conditions are not the same. From what they said it was the water from a huge lake that entered the ocean, not just a ice block as big as one that appeared in 1962.

Where do some of you learn mathematics in life? If an object is 100
square miles, does that mean it is 100 miles wide? NO !! That would mean
approximately 10 miles by 10 miles. You see, 10 X 10 equals 100 sg. mi.
An object that is 10 miles wide and 10 miles long could hardly keep the
two rivers mentioned, flowing for the time that was mentioned. And it
wouldn't provide enough water for the entire country. Get real with the
facts some of you. And it darn sure is not an ice age event. It is just a big
chunk of ice. That is all. Go back to math class now. Besides, it would be
half melted by the time it reached another country. Everyone panic and
jump out of the nearest window. Nothing but doom and gloom as far as
the eye can see.

it seems that the ice is what disrupts earths ocean currents slowing the warm water circulation hence the earth gets cooloer i know it is not what logic would infer

Strange. I flagged this thread, but there are no flags posted. And the flag button won't let me flag it again, since I already flagged it. What's uh, the deal?

I know the original post made reference to the Hudson River and one
other that this chunk of ice would have enough water to keep them
flowing for two years and that the iceberg also had enough water
to supply the entire nations drinking water for a year. It also said it
was 100 square miles, thus my question about it being a hundred miles
across. Weird post. 100 square miles could be 10 X 10, 2 X 50, 4 X 25,
and so on, but nowhere near 100 miles across, unless it is 100 miles
long and one mile wide. I hate posts like this that have so much BS in
them, that some people just jump on the band wagon and wave the flag
and say this is all true and doom and gloom and on and on and on.

If you want a big piece of ice look back to the chunk that
came off the Ross Ice shelf.


Sometimes, fissures and cracks may cause part of the shelf to break off; the largest known is about 31,000 km² (12,000 square miles), that is slightly larger than the size of Belgium. Iceberg B-15, the world's largest recorded iceberg, was calved from the Ross Ice Shelf during March 2000.


But as other ppl have pointed out heating of other planets in our
solar system has been observed.

On mars who is 50% further from the sun it saw reduction in its
polar caps as well.

In ice core data it was warmer during the Holocene maximum.

en.wikipedia.org...

The hacking of the Hadley CRU in climate gate shows the scientists
were committing fraud and lying about the climate.

I think pollution is real and very bad, and we need to work to
get rid of it.

You want us off oil and I have a way to do it.

Paper nano batteries and Thorium.

en.wikipedia.org...



That would solve all energy problems and auto travel til we can
work up Helium-3 fusion.

They have a running He3 fusion reactor now...
