Trillion-tonne iceberg finally snaps off West Antarctic ice shelf, scientists confirm

Staff writers, AFP

THE loss of a huge ice sheet from Antarctica prompted disaster in The Day After Tomorrow. But scientists say the continent’s new trillion-tonne iceberg will not have such an immediate effect.

Larsen B

A TRILLION-ton iceberg which has broken free from Antarctica will do nothing to raise the world’s sea levels. But it has changed the face of the southern continent forever.
“The iceberg weighs more than a trillion tonnes, but it was already floating before it calved away so has no immediate impact on sea level,” a Swansea University research team said. It will likely be named A68.
The massive ice cube is twice the size of the Australian Capital Territory, four times the size of London and twice the size of Luxembourg. It is about 350 metres thick.
The iceberg is more than one and a half times the size of Adelaide (3258 square kilometres), a third of the size of Brisbane (15,826 square kilometres) and more than half the size of Melbourne (9990 square kilometres).

  1. This water displacement BS just cracks me up. Folk really have lost contact with their grey matter.

  2. In 1956 one 6 times the size broke off.

    So its hardly a record.

    But the AGW liars will crap on about it.

    1. This is why I publish these Mainstream news items guys: Spot the agenda. see the spin. Those who are awake enough to give a damn will see the bigger picture.
      Thanks Tommo and Rose.
      As for “Global Warming”, NASA knows all too well that Antarctica is growing, and Larsen B is just a little excess calving off. This article even states that it won’t make any difference to sea levels (which aren’t rising, again according to NASA’s own data).
