Science On the Rocks

Global warmers: Huge iceberg calves off of Antarctica! Surely it is the work of global warming!! Except:

In 1956 an iceberg broke off from Antarctica which was 200 miles long and sixty miles wide. It was the size of “Massachusetts and Connecticut combined”.

That’s six times the size of the one which broke off from the Larsen-C ice shelf in Antarctica this week.

Another iceberg broke off in 1927 which was four times the size of this week’s iceberg.

No one is disputing, then, that a big chunk of ice broke off Antarctica this week.

But it wasn’t unprecedentedly large and it wasn’t anything to do with climate change.

Even global warming science only says mankind began influencing the climate in the 1950s. So this is kind of a normal thing.

Never mind.
