An iceberg expected to be one of the 10 largest ever recorded is ready to break away from Antarctica, scientists say. A long-running rift in the Larsen C ice shelf grew suddenly in December and now just 20km of ice is keeping the 5,000 sq km piece from floating away.
Larsen C is the most northern major ice shelf in Antarctica.
Researchers based in Swansea say the loss of a piece a quarter of the size of Wales will leave the whole shelf vulnerable to future break-up.

The British expedition 'tell' us that the rift has increased by 18km, but there is sod all video of it. Have they ever heard of a drone? I will chip in the 50 quid to buy a drone if they are short.

I hope they get some decent video of the calving event. This will be pretty spectacular, especially as Larsen B break up was totally missed apart from a few satellite still photos.

Global climate change has to be the cause of this and it aggravates me that researchers say "they do not have evidence" that can prove this Antarctic iceberg is breaking away as a result of our human consumption and ignorance leading to an accelerating greenhouse effect. We just recently passed 400ppm of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and show no signs of slowing down...

Lmao we still have a net gain of ice in the Antarctic despite what we loose from melt and break offs.
So we are still gaining ice in the Antarctic.
It's a cycle people the ice breaks off and more ice forms. Nothing new.

I don't seem to remember any ice shelves the size of 1/4 of Wales ever breaking off either one of the poles back in the 1970's or 80's....but the climate is exactly the same now as it was then right? ....nothing is stagnant, change is constant, adapt or die. we just need to quit adding to the problem, ceasing fossil fuel use would help....exponentially...

I would like to know how many people believe these words spoken by the non-Scientist announcer. -
"Researchers say they have no evidence that Climate Change is playing any significant role in the new icebergs formation."
If you believe your media announcer, I recommend that you look around the internet for yourself and find out what the real Scientists are saying.
As an Engineer and a Student of Climate Science, I will tell you that the rate of melting in the Antarctic has accelerated in the last 2 months. Scientists are shocked because the rate of melting has gone up by a factor of 4 to 10. With this new rate of melting we predict that Sea Level will go up 2 meters by 2050. This erases all previous predictions and we don't know what is going to happen next in specific areas.
The melting in the Arctic has also accelerated at the same time. Six months ago, methane started being released into the atmosphere over the Arctic.
It is clear that the BBC has not done their research.
I recommend, if you live at low elevation, move uphill.

I am glad that global warming is now doing its best to destroy us. I know it is not a popular opinion but I am convinced that it is best when we get to go now. The End of the World is Nigh and it is a good thing. Humans have done more than any other creature to destroy the planet and other species, it is now only just that we get to go and be the ones who are catapulting ourselves out of the biosphere and the gene pool.
