Holy Headlines! #3

Free Floe-This past week a massive chunk of ice collapsed in Antarctica. The slab of ice is seven times the size of Manhattan and has been there between hundreds and 1,500 years. It broke of from the Wilkins Ice Shelf in Western Antarctica. The rest of the shelf, about the size of Connecticut, is narrowly holding on by a thin beam of ice which could also break apart.

If only those penguins, seals and polar bears would just stop jumping on the ice.
