A Mighty Big Calve

A chunk of Greenland's Petermann Glacier calved last weekend, all at once (link here). The broken off iceberg that is floating in the Atlantic now, was only about 1/4 of the 70 Km (40 miles) long glacier that spawned it. It's just around 100 square miles - about 4 times the size of Manhattan Island.

Yeah, there's no such thing as global warming. Glaciers are not melting, seas are not rising. If I say that enough, eventually I'll start to believe it.

Maybe I should by some desert real estate around Yuma AZ, before it becomes beach front property?
