Huge Ice Shelf Breaks Off Antarctica - More Global Warming Proof

Imagine the island of Manhattan.

Now imagine that it is actually a huge mass of Antarctic ice.

Now imagine that mass breaking off from the huge ice shelf that surrounds the Antarctic, and you have an idea of what is happening right now. The Wilkins Ice Shelf just lost a 160 square mile section of ice. The huge shelf broke off as a result of global warming and should serve as further proof that the global warming deniers are full of hot air, more precisely hot CO2.

Satellite imagery from the National Snow and Ice Data Center at the University of Colorado at Boulder reveals that a 13,680 square kilometer (5,282 square mile) ice shelf has begun to collapse because of rapid climate change in a fast-warming region of Antarctica.
