Re: Antarctic Ice Shelf Collapses In Largest Event Of Last 30 Years (Mike Kremer)
And for those who have no time for 'Greenpeace' In 1977 Greenpeace found large cracks in the Larsen B Ice Shelf, and suggested its collapse was imminent. As early as 1968 the rapid breakup of ice shelves around the Antarctic Peninsula has been considered as a "sign that dangerous warming is beginning in Antarctica"... (a prediction they made over 30 years ago)
So you (and I suppose Greenpeace) are asserting that a colder climate would have prevented the calving? How? What does the calving have to do with temperature? How do you think an ice shelf comes to be in the first place? Wasn't Greenpeace predicting global cooling thirty years ago?
Inspite of the fact that Antartica has not changed its shape for 5000 years
How is the “shape” of Antarctica relevant? And what occurred 5000 years ago?
