A NASA scientist and her colleagues have observed that the March 11 tsunami that devastated Japan broke off Manhattan-size icebergs from Antarctica, some 8,000 miles distant.




Ok, now I did some searching before I posted this and I haven’t been able to find ANY information on this topic. Why is this just now coming out? Almost 5 months later?? Is this a sly way to blame global warming or some other earth ending situation on Japan??

It was obviously global warming! I bet there were several families of polar bears on that chunk of ice to!

How dare you make a logical argument for any other scenarios.

That was not a giant wave a water it was a heat wave!

i am on the west coast of usa, in oregon, when that earthquake happened our city as well as many others got tsunami warnings we were all told to evacuate, so i packed up my car and got ready

and hour or two before it arrived we were being told Hawaii didnt really get anything so we were probably in the clear, but to be cautious and ready just in case,

so i parked my car on the beach facing the waves and recorded the ocean the moment it was said to hit us

nothing happened,

all day the ocean did not even come into the beach anywhere near how much it does during high tide.

so how then did the tsunami which couldnt reach america, cause devastation in Antarctica!

heres the video i recorded of the extremely (thankfully) uneventful tsunami arrival

www.youtube.com...




we where told the tsunami would hit us at about 7:30 am, the first half of this recording is at 8:00 am, and the second half is at 8:30 am.

i had sat there waiting with my camera from 6am, - 9 am.

While you are correct that the tsunami from Japan did not cause damage to the Northern Coast of Oregon, it did cause severe damage in Brookings, Oregon and Crescent City, California. In fact several people died when they were swept out to sea.

Tsunami Causes Severe Damage to Brookings


The large waves shook loose boats in that weren't moved in time and tore apart wooden docks in at least two California harbors. "This is just devastating. I never thought I'd see this again," said Ted Scott, a retired mill worker who lived in Crescent City when a 1964 tsunami killed 17 people on the West Coast, including 11 in his town. "I watched the docks bust apart. It buckled like a graham cracker.



Enea said the water receding from the harbor leaves boats stuck on the mud at the bottom of the harbor, and then when the surging tsunami waters racing back in, the boats are just dislodged from their mornings and overturned - "tossed about" and smashing into one another.

So, I can see how it could have traveled to Anartica, as it was pretty large.

The mentality of a global warmer.

You guys will believe anything.

Even that there are polar bears in ANTARCTICA.

As for the Japanese Tsunami breaking off ice sheets in the antarctic this same thing happened after the Indonesian Tsunami and was also blamed on global warming.
