Just a couple hour ago, it was reported that a massive iceberg weighing over a trillion tons (comparable in size to Wales) just broke off of Antarctica! While scientists have not found any link to human-induced climate change yet, they acknowledge that the rift that split the ice shelf occurred when the shelf was receding at an alarming rate likely due to climate change, so perhaps there is a link. If this massive breakup of Antarctic ice was indeed caused by human-induced climate change, how do you all think the world (namely the Trump administration) will react? Will attitudes change or will no one take real action?
