A massive iceberg has just broken away from Antarctica, and it’s making scientists worry for the future

It’s estimated to weigh a trillion tonnes, and has an area of 5800 sq km, the size of a small country

The iceberg detached from the West Antarctic ice shelf Larsen C, which could now become highly unstable

Researchers at Swanlea University had been watching the glacial divide for months using satellite imagery

Though it may be too early to tell, this fracture in the polar landscape could be the product of global warming

Antarctic temperatures are rising rapidly, causing ice sheets to break apart and drift into the Atlantic Ocean

That rogue ice disrupts maritime safety, then melts, causing water levels all around the world to rise

Polar animal species, like emperor penguins, are also threatened by the slow decimation of their habitats

This giant iceberg will now be monitored intensely, as will the resulting fragility of the glaciers it left behind

Bull Shit, Fake News. This has happened many times before. it'll happen many more times. Global warming is the biggest hoax ever perpetrated on mankind. You alarmists need to do some actual research instead of just drinking the fucking Koolaid.
