New NASA Images Reveal Massive Crack in Antarctica, Will Create Iceberg the Size of Delaware When It Breaks Off
Perhaps this had something to do with Secretary of State John Kerry’s recent trip to Antarctica…
NASA claims the crack only appeared on satellite imagery just this year. It’s as wide as a football field is long and stretches for 70 miles.
The massive crack is in Larsen C, a shelf floating off the Antarctic Peninsula.
Live Science reports:
When the crack eventually spreads across the entire ice shelf, it will create an iceberg the size of the state of Delaware, according to IceBridge… The dark depths of the crack plunge down about a third of a mile (0.5 km), all the way through the ice to the ocean below… Larsen C is Antarctica’s fourth-largest ice shelf, and it holds back the land-based glaciers just behind it: Once the ice shelf goes, those slow-flowing glaciers have one less barrier in their journey toward the sea.
The Larsen B ice shelf already partially collapsed in 2002, and NASA says the rest of it will break up by the end of the decade.
Elsewhere on Antarctica, climate alarmists are still trying to explain why the amount of ice has essentially remained unchanged for years, and temperatures in the Antarctic Peninsula have actually gotten cooler, not warmer in the past two decades.
