Giant Antarctic ice shelf breaks into the sea | Environment | guardian.co.uk: "A vast hunk of floating ice has broken away from the Antarctic peninsula, threatening the collapse of a much larger ice shelf behind it, in a development that has shocked climate scientists.
Satellite images show that about 160 square miles of the Wilkins ice shelf has been lost since the end of February, leaving the ice interior now 'hanging by a thread'.
The collapsing shelf suggests that climate change could be forcing change much more quickly than scientists had predicted."
