On August 9th, a massive sheet of ice (the size of Manhattan times 4 and half the size in height of the Empire State Building) broke off from the Artic called the Petermann Glacier. There is much to be concern according to scientists, especially the eventual contribution to rising sea levels. Climate change and global warming, everybody! We must not ignore this!
A giant iceberg that snapped away from Greenland last week is a signal that global warming is causing the island's continent-sized ice cap to melt faster than expected, scientists say.
This is an iceberg 4x the size of Manhattan that will melt into the sea. Its implication are still unknown. Scientists and environmentalist are calling this a result of global warming. We have hit record high temperatures! The sea is getting warmer and this still doesn't seem to phase Conservatives that continues to believe this is all a myth!
Environmentalists say ice melt is being caused by global warming with Arctic temperatures in the 1990s reaching their warmest level in any decade in at least 2,000 years, according to a study published in 2009. Current trends could see the Arctic Ocean become ice free in summer months within decades, researchers predict. Link
