Greenland Glacier Loses Huge Ice Chunk

Now, before you go jumping to conclusions that this means global warming is real (it isn't), look at the second sentence. This was about 10 years before climatologists, at the time, were declaring "The Coming Ice Age." Yes, we were all going to die then too, but it was because we were going to freeze to death.

These morons have been guessing and getting climate predictions wrong for decades, but apparently we're all too dense to see the pattern of stupidity and fear into which we lead them lead us.

A chunk of ice four times the size of Manhattan has calved from Greenland's Petermann Glacier, scientists announced today.

The last time the Arctic lost such a large chunk of ice was in 1962.

"In the early morning hours of August 5, 2010, an ice island four times the size of Manhattan was born in northern Greenland," said Andreas Muenchow, associate professor of physical ocean science and engineering at the University of Delaware.
