/ City sized glacial collapse
A calving event is no evidence of global warming, it just looks good on the news.
Having said that...most glaciers are in net mass loss anyway as a result of global warming. Just a little bugbear of mine when people go "whoa, look at that massive chunk of ice coming off, that global warming is messing things up".
Wow thats phenomenal , must be hell of a thing to witness first hand .
Ta for posting Denni .
"While shooting a tongue of glacier that has receded as much in the past ten years as in the previous 100,"
We all know that lumps fall off glaciers it's the speed at which they are falling off that's changed.
