Giant Iceberg

Sydney (dpa) - Eine Jahrhundert-Kollision hat in der Antarktis einen gigantischen neuen Eisberg geschaffen. Der 78 Kilometer lange und bis zu 39 Kilometer breite Koloss brach von einer schwimmenden Gletscherzunge ab, nachdem ein anderer Rieseneisberg dagegen gekracht war.

Nothing to do with global warming this time. What influence is this likely to have on the ecosystem? Some seem to think it might influence the weather thousands of kilometers away but others suggest that's unlikely. To see the full report, from which the quote above is taken, go to Neuer Eisberg nach Jahrhundert-Kollision
