World’s Largest Iceberg! A-76 Forms In Antarctica – Another Example Of The Catastrophe Of Global Warming!

Meet A-76, The World’s Largest Iceberg!

As impressive as this is, the story is actually unsettling: another massive iceberg has formed, torn from the ice shelf of Antarctica…sadly, another example of global warming…

An enormous chunk of ice bigger than Rhode Island has broken off an Antarctic ice shelf, creating a new iceberg.

A-76 covers more than 1,600 square miles, making it the largest iceberg in the world, agency officials said.

The iceberg, dubbed A-76, calved off the Ronne Ice Shelf into the Weddell Sea. The European Space Agency’s twin Copernicus Sentinel-1 satellites spotted the giant slab of ice breaking away on May 13.

The U.S. National Ice Center — which is operated by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the Navy and the Coast Guard — confirmed the calving event the following day and recorded the position of A-76 in the Weddell Sea, saying:

“Iceberg A-76 calves from the western side of the Ronne Ice Shelf in the Weddell Sea and is currently the largest iceberg in the world.”

Of course, this is bad news as it suggests the solid icecap at the bottom of the world is melting…NOT god news for rising water…in fact, I reported about the devastation caused by global warming:

J. Maarten Troost wrote this book about his life on a tropical south sea island, which looked like this when he first arrived:

However, when he went back years later, rising water destroyed part of the island’s clean water, leaving it uninhabitable:

As cool as it looks, it does raise questions about where it might be headed!

  4. This seems to signal the start of far worse catastrophes to come. Very worrying for people younger than me, that’s for sure.
