Iceberg Breaks Up

(Live Leak link)

If someone told me the local iceberg was collapsing, I would be out there with the crowd watching it. This was recorded in Argentina. The show gets more intense toward the end. ~via Ursi’s Blog

Update: I did a little digging, and this has been identified as the Perito Moreno Glacier {wiki} in Los Glaciares National Park. The breakup is a natural phenomena that can be forecasted, but it’s not regular, happening every one to ten years. It's a big tourist attraction.

Hauntingly beautiful, yet, I would've chosen a slightly less "new age" soundtrack. Oh well, global warming is here already might as well enjoy the show.

Hasn't anyone heard of glaciers CALVING?

If there are substantial winter snowfalls further up the glacier, it thickens at the ends, and pieces drop off. A natural phenomenon.

People who blame this on global warming are being intellectually lazy, and probably should not be allowed out without a minder.
