A Delaware-sized iceberg has fallen off Antarctica. This is great. Cenk Uygur as well as John Iadarola, hosts of The Young Turks, discuss. Inform us what you think in the remark section below.
" One of the biggest icebergs ever tape-recorded broke short Antarctica's Larsen C ice shelf previously today, according to satellite images and researchers that monitor such things, permanently changing the shoreline of our planet's icy continent.
Two times the size of Long Island and also packing a trillion tons of ice– completely melted, that's enough water to fill Lake Michigan– the recently birthed iceberg appears like an ideal symbol for our overheating globe. However there's a much more complex story at play.
You may be believing: Should I have relocated to the hills of Coloradoyesterday? Well, this one iceberg itself (most likely to be called A68) doesn't mean much on its own. Its "calving" (as researchers call it) was likely mostly all-natural, and it was currently drifting, so it won't contribute significantly to sea-level surge. As well as there are various other regions of Antarctica which contain significantly much more ice.
Now the clock might be ticking on the collapse of Larsen C itself, beginning one of one of the most potentially essential natural science experiments in human history. By very closely watching exactly what happens at Larsen C, we'll be able to learn more about what could occur to the rest of Antarctica in our life times, and also fine-tune sea-level surge forecasts for the coming years." *.
