Massive Iceberg Breaks Free In Antarctica

Quote:
A massive iceberg the size of Delaware has broken free from Antarctica and is floating in the sea.

Earlier Wednesday, scientists announced that the 6,000-square-kilometer (about 2,300 square miles) iceberg had come loose, after satellites detected it had calved off the Larsen C ice shelf on the Antarctic Peninsula.

"Put any adjective you like on it: a corker, a whopper it's a really large iceberg," says Anna Hogg, a researcher with the United Kingdom's Centre for Polar Observation and Modelling at the University of Leeds.

"There have been some this big before," says Adrian Luckman, a glaciologist at Swansea University in the U.K. who leads a project to track changes in the ice shelf. But he adds, the roughly trillion-metric-ton iceberg is unusual. "This is certainly in the Top 10, maybe possibly in the Top 5."

I wonder if the Steve Urkel of global warming scientists that created this ice fault line with an ice pick will ever fess up?
