Antartica ice block is breaking


Can you imagine breaking off Larsen C ice shelf in Antarctica which is 100 area of Manhattan, New York?
Larsen C is located on western coast of Antarctica.
This chunk is finger like shaped.
Rift has been widened from 50 meters in 2011 to 500 meters today.
The real danger is from inland glaciers.
The breaking off, or calving, of ice shelves is a natural process, but global warming is thought to have accelerated the process.
We should conserve nature and try not to intervene with nature as this phenomenon has occurred due to manmade activities only.
So be careful and never play with nature.
