Why scientists are so worried about this glacier

quote:

It's at the heart of Antarctica and on the verge of collapse.

In Antarctica, home to the largest chunk of ice on earth, ice shelves and glaciers are beginning to collapse, and one in particular could spell disaster. The Thwaites Glacier, in West Antarctica, has retreated more than 14 kilometers in the last two decades as warm ocean water undermines it. The glacier is situated on a downward slope that falls deep into the center of Antarctica. It's why scientists are racing to find out how close it is to total collapse - and what that would mean for future sea levels.

re: Why scientists are so worried about this glacier
From the estimates, it contains almost an unfathomable amount of water. How accurate they are and how much it will impact the ocean levels is up for debate.

Just fricking stop.

You people are insane. Get back to me when all the homes in Martha’s Vinyard are evacuated due to the existential threat.

You mean beyond calculation? How? They calculate all kinds of shite in space.

Hopefully the little water taxis will be careful around this thing.

This is how you know the article is bull shite. They've been collapsing for millions of years.

I think he meant that most people don’t know what fathoms are these days since it’s an ocean topic

That's a subjective as a journalist these days. The Earth has cyclic weather patterns. Don't fall for the arrogant arguments that humans could change it, or keep it from changing. You and I are of no consequence with changing weather patterns.

Globaism 2022. Make you scared of it. Convince you only they have the solution. Sell it to you. Tax the money back.

I got the joke. I guess I should have taken that and moved on.

No the incomprehensible meaning. The amount of water the estimates suggest is hard to imagine.

As for the calculations that have been done they are estimates and I honestly have no idea how good those estimates are nor how good the estimates of how much volume is needed to increase the oceans' levels by a specific amount.

These Climate Alarmists are truly insane. What ever happened to the coming Ice Age from the 70’s?!? And who could forget corrosive acid rains in the 80’s and THE Ozone HOLE!!!!!!!!!!!!’
I love it how these nutjobs leave out the most important factor….the Sun.

Fill a glass with ice and water. Leave it out to melt. Get back and let us know if the glass overflows.

Winner winner chicken dinner. This is all about creating fear in an effort to get more control over you.

This is land ice, not sea ice.
