    A natural occurance, sped up by humanity. Captured and now televised by the same species. Can we reverse the process at this point? Who has the ambition?

    • Calving is not a sign of global warming. Its a sign of a growing glacier.

      • Evidence, please.

      • When glaciers dry up, they don’t calve. They form higher up and push their way down. If there is insufficient snowfall or high temperatures up in the mountains they don’t form. Hence no calving. Calving implies that its cold enough and snows enough for the winters precipitation not to melt. Thats how glaciers form.

        • Glaciers don’t “dry up,” they melt, and they do calve when they melt as well as when they grow.
