It combines the spirit of old Greenland with a little big city panache.

It's not an iceberg. It's an urban iceblock.

These icebergs, they're real. And they're spectacular.

Maybe I missed the Fark link, but TFA links to:

Among the gems: "Mann could be said to be the Jerry Sandusky of climate science, except that instead of molesting children, he has molested and tortured data in the service of politicized science that could have dire economic consequences for the nation and planet."

Petermann's in a pretty cold part of Greenland, but it has a bottom filled with a seawater intrusion, and from what I recall it was widely surmised by 2008 that the combination of tidal forces and climatic change were eventually going to wreak something like this. It had a long time to accrete a piece "as big as Manhattan" before the 2010 calving.

We have to teach the polar bears to stop jumping so much.

It's so cute when the calves are young and can barely stand on their own, let alone sink a cruise ship. Awwwww!
