Hit or Miss? Gigantic Iceberg Bears Down on South Georgia Island

An enormous iceberg, called A-68A, has made headlines over the past weeks as it drifts towards South Georgia in the Southern Ocean. New images, captured by the Copernicus Sentinel-1 mission, show the berg is rotating and potentially drifting westwards. Credit: Contains modified Copernicus Sentinel data (2020), processed by ESA

    Climate fear-mongering at its finest. “If this happens, then that undesirable outcome must follow.” Usually, the undesirable outcome is some negative impact on “the children”; children in South Georgia presumably don’t cavort in those icy waters, so another undesirable outcome had to be found — how the iceberg might affect wildlife too inflexible in their response to a changing environment to avoid the berg. If living creatures are really so stupid as this suggests, it’s a wonder there is any life left on this planet given the wild climate perturbations of the Quaternary.
