A giant ice shelf the size of 11,000 football fields has snapped free from Canada's Arctic,The collapse was so powerful that earthquake monitors 155 miles away picked up tremors from it.Even 10 years ago scientists assumed that when global warming changes occur that it would happen gradually so that perhaps we expected these ice shelves just to melt away quite slowly, but the big surprise is that for one they are going, but secondly that when they do go, they just go suddenly, it's all at once, in a span of an hour..When it hits the population,there is oil and gas theer we could lose..This IS GLOBAL WARMING PEOPLE..and were boned!! What are your thoughts on this?? u can check out the article here... http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20061229/ap_on_sc/canada_arctic_ice_break

That was a wonderful bit of information which I will definitely read in detail after writing this response. I think global warming will continue as long as the population increases. Suddenly due to heat a good part of the population will die and the world will grdually recover.

yes, i agree with you..i think that this is the first stage of many that the world is going to self recover and end up killing us off like the dinosaurs,i bet in 100 yrs the world as we know it will end..for us..and a new beginning will start..and i hope that my son isnt here to see it..

An Inconvenient Truth - An Inconvenient Truth
It is scary to think that they world, as we know it, could cease to exist... Has anyone seen the movie/documentary "An Inconvenient Truth"? It talks about the global warming. I didn't see it yet, but i think i'll go rent it today, i've been wanting to see it for some time.

I have just read the article. I have not heard of this. The size of 11,000 f.fields, that is scary!!! I am not looking forward to what could be round the corner. The affects of Global warming seems to coming quicker than was first predicted. i just hope it is not too late to make a change.

I remember several years ago this was scientists biggest fear. They showed a simulation of how things would take place and what would happen to the world if these ice shelves started falling off. You know the Bible says a great mountain will fall into the ocean. hmmmmm..Wondering if this is what they were talking about?
