Zounds! – CBC News:Huge ice shelf in Canadian North splits

CBC News:Huge ice shelf in Canadian North splits: “QUEBEC CITY – Canadian and American researchers are blaming warming conditions for the breakup of the largest ice shelf in the Arctic.
The Ward Hunt ice shelf on the north coast of Ellesmere Island broke up between 2000 and 2002, according to scientists who visited the site and studied satellite images.

Local warming since the 19th century is to blame for the breakup. Atmospheric warming has been named a cause of a collapsing ice shelf in the West Antarctic, but scientists don’t have enough evidence to link the Arctic melting to global climate change.”

OK lets see, heat melts ice. And to melt an Artic Cap, it would take a lott of heat, say Global Warming?
