A huge chunk of an iceberg broke off from Antarctica this week, and you can be sure it’s going to fuel a lot more “climate change” alarmism:
JUST IN: World's largest iceberg, with an area of over 4,000 square kilometres, has broken off from Antarctica.

The story caught the attention of Greta Thunberg and others:
An iceberg about the size of Mallorca has calved from Antarctica, making it the biggest iceberg in the world. https://t.co/VvzUUOYkJo

And of course that helped whip up some of the usual panic.
How long before we realise that this is the biggest news story of today? I rewatched The Day After Tomorrow the other day. When it came out in 2004 it might have seemed a little far fetched. It doesn’t feel like that now. https://t.co/9iHlEIp107

However, even some in the media aren’t trying to help the Dems forward their climate change narrative. The New York Times was one of them:
NYTimes #ClimateBuzzkill-es itself so I don't have to:
"Researchers sought to put the formation of A76 in context, saying that the forces that severed it from the Ronne Ice Shelf were part of the shelf’s normal life span."https://t.co/NWQdt2LBM8

CNN delivered the buzzkill as well:
CNN: "Iceberg calving is part of the natural cycle, w. huge chunks of ice breaking off the ice shelf at regular intervals. Scientists aren't attributing this particular break-off to climate change, & instead believe it's part of the natural cycle of iceberg calving in the region"

Researchers sought to put the formation of A76 in context, saying that the forces that severed it from the Ronne Ice Shelf were part of the shelf’s normal life span and may not be directly related to climate change.
Nature is cyclical? No way!
