I don’t usually like just relinking BoingBoing posts because the chances are you’ve all read them already. But the news that a chunk of ice four times the size of Manhattan has broken off of the Petermann Glacier in Greenland hasn’t been picked up by any UK papers as far as I can tell*.
I have no idea whether this is related to recent warnings that 2010 could be the hottest year on record, but even it’s a slightly terrifying coincidence at the very least.
*Although it was covered in Pravda. Just goes to show.
