Doomsday glacier

Scientists say a critical ice shelf in Antarctica could break apart within the next three to five years, leading to large sea-level rises.

Satellite images presented at the annual meeting of the American Geophysical Union suggest the ice keeping together the Thwaites glacier in western Antarctica could soon shatter. The glacier is known as the “Doomsday glacier” because if it collapsed, it could raise sea levels by several feet, inundating coastal communities and low-lying island nations.

My comment: And here we are, worrying about the attempted American right- wing coup and to what extent we can rely on the military being loyal to their oaths of loyalty to the Constitution. And as millions are threatened with a climatic disaster, no doubt the usual suspects will dismiss the doomsday glacier as a scam and tell us that it’s just a way of changing the subject.
