Collapsing iceberg

I like this (h/t: QS):

The change from “Oh look that’s fun, lets stop and watch” to the brief “Oh shit” to the “Ha ha, we all lived, that was great fun” to “who got it on video?” is oh-so-typical of our species.

  1. Next up, video of Antarctica falling into the Pacific (from the space station, of course …).

    [Absolutely, and I can just see everyone going “Woooooo” as those huge chunks of ice whizz past… until one hits them on the head, of course -W]

  2. Mind you, there’s also quite a lot of “Oh look that’s fun, lets stop and watch” to the brief “Oh shit” to complete silence. Especially with tsunamis.

  3. Antarctica falling into the Pacific?

    …imagine that happening… in the arctic with the ice that’s formed from snow.

    WTF are you [PA redacted -W] about?

    Average temperatures in Antarctica are below freezing year round.

    [Not a very useful measure, if you’re interested in the coastline -W]

    Arctic ice is doing just fine:

    Empirical data please!

    [You’ve misread the picture you link to. But as for your call for empirical data: you can either read your own pic properly, or perhaps more easily see the nice big pic I inlined: http://www.flickr.com/photos/belette/6860682216/ which is http://arctic.atmos.uiuc.edu/cryosphere/arctic.sea.ice.interactive.html. Given that, your call for “empirical data” cannot be seen as anything other than dishonesty -W]
