Glacier Calving??

When I first heard of glacier calving, I thought, “what on earth?” I mean, what a strange term. Come to find out, it has nothing to do with livestock giving birth on a cold winter’s night. Check out this AMAZING bit of footage (4:42 minutes) but make sure you stick with it to the end so you get the “drift” of its magnitude.

    Whoa!! Serious! This was both fascinating and scary. To see how much it has retreated in a few short years is disturbing. What an important documentation to share with the world about the status of our planet and global warming.

    I have been fortunate enough to have traveled twice to Alaska, and have witnessed first hand Glacial Calving. To see it in person simply makes you awestruck! It is a beautiful and powerful sight that speaks volumes!
    Perhaps someday all of the nay sayers will see that there really is a thing called global warming.

    Amazing! Thanks for sharing this kind of calving with us. Though it shows us global warming’s effects, which isn’t good, it’s still so awesome and amazing to watch.
