Synopsis:

When Eco-Logic was an hour-long, we had a News, Announcements, and Information segment. For several years, we've been reporting on chunks of Antarctic ice breaking off of the continent and floating away. Some of the icebergs have been the size of Rhode Island. A recent chuck was "only" the size of Manhattan. Ice that breaks off a glacier contributes to sea-level rise. If the ice broke off a floating ice shelf, it won't contribute to sea-level rise directly, but it will speed up land glaciers which will add to sea-level rise. If all the ice on West Antarctica flowed into the ocean, it would raise sea levels by over 20 feet. East Antarctica is several times larger and the ice is much thicker; that is melting, too.
