Iceberg B-15 broke away from the Antarctic ice shelf in 2000. It’s been tracked from space ever since, and it’s nearly gone. The wonderful Earthsky.org notified me of the event and I thought you’d be interested.
This seemed so wild it could be part of my #30DaysWild challenge. I hope you agree.
Of course, it’s all about climate change. This bit really is about global warming, since the overall warming of our atmosphere through increased concentrations of carbon dioxide is what caused the instability of the polar icesheets in the first place. The freak storms and crazy seasons we have been experiencing in the last couple of years are well within the predictions of changes to global climates due to global warming. That’s why it’s so hard to convince people that global warming can mean your country could experience lengthy big freezes (like the UK’s Beast from the East in March).
