This isn't the first large chunk of the glacier to break off: the glacier calved a bigger chunk in 2010.
Absolutely amazing - not the glacier calving - the fact that climate change is mentioned anywhere but in The Times of India.Muenchow said climate change was a factor in the current state of the Petermann Glacier. He said this glacier is as far back toward the land as it has been since the start of the Industrial Revolution more than 150 years ago.
Tick , tock, tick, tock ....time is short. The retreat of [most] glaciers means we're facing more than a shipping hazard.
