+ - Ancient ice shelf breaks off from island

Submitted by
CDMA_Demo
CDMA_Demo writes "Several new websites are reporting that The Ayles, an ancient ice shelf the size of 11,000 football fields has broken off from Ellesmere Island. FOX News says: "The collapse was so powerful that earthquake monitors 155 miles away picked up tremors from it." Climate change is being blamed by scientists for the first such event in 30 years. (Amazing that Slashdot doesn't have a subsection on environment)."
