STORY HIGHLIGHTS
At 74,000 square miles, the glacier is roughly the same size as Florida.

The glacier earned its ominous "doomsday" nickname because it's one of Antarctica's fastest melting glaciers.

Already, ice draining from Thwaites accounts for about 4 percent of global sea-level rise.


An underwater robot discovered warm water under the Florida-sized Thwaites Glacier in Antarctica, which could speed up the already-melting glacier.

Scientists have discovered warm water underneath the Thwaites Glacier in Antarctica, which could speed up the melting of the Florida-sized block of ice, potentially affecting sea-level rise around the world.

Before everyone panics, maybe we need to understand a longer term dataset of the temperature of the water under the glacier.

Climate change: 'Stop using the worst-case scenario ... as the most likely outcome,' experts say

“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”

I did catch that. This caught my eye.

 

"According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the worst-case scenario predicts the globe will warm by 9 degrees Fahrenheit (5 degrees Celsius) by the end of the century. This is "a dystopian future that is fossil-fuel intensive and excludes any climate mitigation policies," the authors said."

In other words, if you follow Trump's vision of coal, oil and gas...you could face dystopian future.

For most of his life he was a Dem and his ideas were pretty much main stream Dem, I can understand people who do not like him, I do not, but for his ideas is somewhat confusing when they describe themselves as basically being of the same philosophy.

Which Democrats?

 

 

That is an excellent question, are Progressives, the Antifa and Woke wing Dems?
