Left Blames Global Warming For Enormous Iceberg Breaking. There’s Just One Problem

Talk about burying the lede.

Time issued a tweet with a video alerting readers that a massive iceberg had broken off in Antarctica. As The Daily Wire reported last week:

An iceberg roughly the size of Delaware and 600 feet thick is about to break off from one of the largest floating ice shelves in Antarctica, and the prospect is precipitating fierce debate as to whether global warming is the cause. The iceberg is part of the Larsen C ice shelf in the Weddell Sea, south of the tip of South America. The calving has been expected; a crack in the ice shelf had grown to be over 100 miles long in recent months.

No matter; over video of the iceberg, Time intoned in a caption:

A 1.12-trillion ton iceberg has broken off from Antarctica.

Uh-oh.

Time continued:

Scientists say the vast iceberg, with twice the volume of Lake Erie, broke off between July 10-12.

OMG.

Time, on a roll now, added:

The process, known as calving, occurred when a 2, 240-square-mile section broke off.

AND YOU KNOW WHY THAT IS, DON’T YOU?

Of course, the natural response from climate change zealots would be that global warming was to blame, correct?

Correct. Time’s tweet elicited the usual coterie of climate change warriors to assert that dreaded global warming was melting the ice cap.

But then, before the video ended, but after the climate change zealots had rushed to their computers to tweet their rage, unbeknownst to them, Time finally admitted:

It was a natural event that had been anticipated for months and was not caused by climate change.

Well, heck, everyone knows that.

Gee, Time, thanks for the tip!

    In order to advance their political climate meme the left must represent that the earth exists in a static environment. They must ask that we ignore the dynamic, and constantly changing forces acting upon the planet since its creation.

    This way they can explain to Hollywood simpletons and the leftstream media that any undesired natural event is by simple deduction a man-made phenomenon somehow caused by the Koch Brothers and free market economics.

    Just remember that TIME is the very same liberal rag that warned us of a New Ice Age back in the 1970’s as much as they were warning us about Global Warming in the 1990’s and they also annoyed WW II vets with their cover mocking the Iwo Jima Flag Raising replacing the flag with a tree

      political thugs, like the ALWAYS SPURNING PLOVER love to name call and make OUTRAGIOUS claims….
      take for example the asinine comment that TIME warned of a new ice age.
      (which I have corrected the name calling PLOVER about before)
      While hundreds of newspapers reported about a study which talked about AEROSOLS ‘cooling’ the atmosphere (not an ice age)…were spurred into printing the stories by 1000’s of PRESS RELEASES for OIL & COAL Company Public Relations Departments.

      THE TIME COVER and the SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN COVER were
      FAKED by ultra conservative HEARTLAND INSTITUTE…
      HEARTLAND INSTITUTE WAS SUED BY TIME & SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN….
      HEARTLAND INSTITUTE lost the court suit and SIGNED a CONSENT DECREE never to fake news media again….
      THEY promptly sent the fakes to other right wing mouth piece for Killer COAL….who continue to display these FRAUDS on their WEB SITES and BLOGS………..ALL LIES as PLOVER WELL KNOWS !

      Climate Science
      “Sorry, a TIME Magazine Cover Did Not Predict a Coming Ice Age
      (nor did a similarly forged Scientific American Cover)
      (ARCH CONSERVATIVE Heartland Institute Faked the Cover of Time/ Predicting an Ice Age and that does not make it true. )
      (Heartland was sued by Time, Signed a consent decree, agreeing to stop faking Time Mag. covers)
      An Adulterated TIME magazine cover warning of a coming ice age.
      .
      But the “reality remains” that the world is warming,
      thanks chiefly to human action….”

      TIME & Scientific American SUED Heartland Institute and Won a restraining order.

      The Liars of the Right, paid to entend the TRILLION DOLLAR CASH FLOW from tax coffers to Killer Coal & OIL billionaires.
      .
      All the while these industries are profitable and contributing to the Damage to our Climate & damaging our health.
      .
      Along with the FAKED Time Cover & Scientific American
      the BIG LIE was that
      ‘ Scientists lied to you back in the 70’s about a new ice age,
      and they are lying today about global warming. ‘
      BUT THAT IS THE BIG LIE NAZI GOEBBELS TALKED ABOUT !

        Sorry, Rakoyoyo, in the late 70’s we really were worried about another ice age. The news was full of it. (That’s a double entendre, fyi)

        What an complete dingbat you are. Even the dullest intellect can observe for himself some of the facts without any “knowledge” superimposed by the media rags, its followers, or the alarmists.You probably also do not believe in God because you have noticed nothing to indicate the possibility of His existence, so you and your all-knowing friends deny that.

    Elementary school taught us all that the Tectonic plates are shifting a few inches or MM each year. The earth is still quite thermally active with some land masses appearing and disappearing within a short amount of time. Volcano erupting, mountain ranges growing, shrinking etc… Yet it must be due to climate change? I would say that in itself is a huge assumption based on no data to support it. Subsidence of the Tectonic plate could be another explanation?

    It’s also just the nature of glaciers. They constantly build their own massive weight, and that has to go somewhere. It’s like a home with a metal roof in the winter. As the snow builds, you know it’s only a matter of time before it has to slide off. This obvious answer seems elusive for eco-leftists who must find a contorted opportunity to forward their agenda with every naturally calved ice berg.

      If that ice would just stay where it “belongs” then ocean temperatures would rise. How inconvenient. In the meantime, adjust the temperature readings higher.

    900 earthquakes in Yellowstone last week.. 600 – 900 in Oklahoma… Must all be due to climate change? Nothing to do with Tectonic plates moving around?

    When it comes to the holy grail of the eco-left, man-made climate change is at the end of every rainbow.

    You could also say that with MMGW the eco-left is constantly hearing a stampeding herd of unicorns as they stand in the middle of a cattle field.

    Want one more apt comparison? “When all you have is a hammer, everything you see looks like a nail”.

    They always reach for the most implausible conclusion first, simply because it fits their political narrative.

    Satellite images showed Russian tractors pulling a huge glass cutter across the ice shelf two years ago. It worked, ice broke-off as scored.
