In addition to how amazing the footage and the scale of this iceberg calving is (larger than the size of lower Manhattan and more than twice the height of the tallest buildings), is how quickly the glacier has receded in the last decade.
From approximately 13,000-9,000 BC, a great melting happened on our planet as the northern hemisphere came out of the Ice Age. Water levels rose by over 350 feet on all coastlines and it is thought that all the myths of the Great Flood or Great Deluge come from that collective experience.
We should be stunned by this footage by what it is telling us. Our planet has warmed and continues to do so. Let us be informed by facts and understand the consequences of capitalist decisions based on materialism, greed, and “tomorrow doesn’t matter” lack of ethics.
