Pretty cool pictures.

Larsen C began thinning around the time that the other sections broke off, losing 13 feet between 1998 and 2012. But deterioration of the ice shelf has dramatically accelerated.

When the dark of the Southern Hemisphere winter lifted in August, scientists were shocked to see that the rift in the ice had grown nearly 14 miles.

"The growth of this rift likely indicates that the portion of the ice shelf downstream of the rift is no longer holding back any grounded ice," said Joe MacGregor, IceBridge deputy project scientist and glaciologist at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center.

Long-term satellite observations show that Antarctic glaciers are rapidly retreating. In West Antarctica, they are losing 23 feet of elevation per year. As they slip away, they add up to 150 billion tons of water to the ocean, raising seas by about a tenth of an inch annually.

One of those glaciers, the Pine Island Glacier, calved off a 225 square mile iceberg in 2015. Ohio State University researchers found that the rift began at the base of the glacier in 2013 and worked its way upward.

"It's generally accepted that it's no longer a question of whether the West Antarctic Ice Sheet will melt, it's a question of when," said study leader Ian Howat, associate professor of Earth Sciences at Ohio State.Just heard this on the radio. Ice chunk the size of Delaware expected to break soon. Will threaten some coastlines.

Nothing to worry about DWags.

If it's happening it's God's will and we all know photographic evidence isn't always correct.

Look at the inauguration crowd photos.

Weather. Of course if it were warmth we'd see the warmists pointing to it....+


Winter in June? Rare fresh powder falls at Lake Tahoe


There's fresh powder this morning in the Sierra Nevada at Lake Tahoe, and it's the middle of June. +

A low-pressure system from the Pacific moved into the mountains Sunday night, with light flurries starting around 4 p.m. By midnight, it was snowing heavily, with accumulations as low as 5,000 feet.

Brian O'Hara a meteorologist with the National Weather Service office in Reno, says snowfall reports have varied from a half-inch at lake level to four inches at 6,700 feet at Incline Village.

"We've only received a few reports at this point, but in general we're seeing three to five inches around the northern Sierra, and I think we could have received up to 12 inches at some higher elevations above 8,000 feet."

You try to hard. But then again, not hard enough because if you were really capable, we wouldn't be able to see through your BS.

I'm sorry that a foot of snow in June doesn't fit your beliefs.
