Ice Shelf the Size of Manhattan is About to Break Off!
Every day I hear more evidence about our planet warming up and that it is caused by us – humans. NASA scientists are concerned about a growing crack in the Nansen Ice Shelf that may break off and create a massive iceberg the size of Manhattan. Over the past 2 years, this small crack has spread across the entire width of the shelf, which is about 20 miles wide and 30 miles long. The rate of ice shelf loss has been speeding up according to ScienceAlert. Over the past 20 years, Antarctica’s Larsen ice shelves have lost about 75 percent of its land mass.
Others may argue that the Nansen Ice Shelf is just 0.1% of Antarctica’s ice shelf coverage, NASA researchers want to continue studying why ice shelves collapse and how to prevent it. I’m worried that massive ice shelves are breaking away in Antarctica and Greenland/Arctic regions. We need to drastically – and quickly – reduce our CO2 levels in order to stop inevitable catastrophic disasters in the near future.
