    THE CLIMATE CHANGE OMG MOMENT IS NOW

    This Is What a Holy Shit Moment for Global Warming Looks Like; According to two new studies, the collapse of much of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet may now be irreversible. That could ultimately mean 10 feet of sea level rise.

    Chris Mooney, May 12, 2014 (Mother Jones)

    “…Planet Earth has not always had great ice sheets at the poles…In other periods, much of that water has instead been in liquid form, in the oceans—and the oceans have been much higher…[S]cientists have long feared a day like this would come. Two new scientific papers, in the journals Science and Geophysical Research Letters, report that major glaciers that are part of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet appear to have become irrevocably destabilized…[D]ue to the particular dynamics of this ice sheet, the collapse of these major glaciers now [over the next 100 years] ‘appears unstoppable’…[A]n array of large glaciers along the Amundsen Sea in West Antarctica, which collectively contain the equivalent of four feet of sea level rise…[are in] ‘continuous and rapid retreat’…[The Thwaites Glacier, which contains about two feet of sea level rise]…is retreating rapidly…[and will probably undermine] ‘much of West Antarctica’…[which] contains enough water to raise sea levels by 10 to 13 feet…” click here for more
