5. Thanks for posting

The amount of ice that came off was so immense that I have trouble putting it into perspective.

But we all know that climate change is a hoax made up by the libural tree huggers designed to rob the oil companies from their rightful profits.

</sarcasm> for those who don't know me.

What an awesome force it is.

8. I am past angry already with the denier and fatalist crowds...

We should have been doing more about this for the past 20 years, but with the changes escalating so far so fast...MORE retreat and ice loss in the last TEN YEARS than in the preceding CENTURY?!?!?!?!...that we need to start eliminating the contributions of those dedicated to making things even worse before they offer anything meaningful in the way of solutions.

If someone wants to brand themselves as a young-Earth creationist with a hatred of science and data, modernity and rationality in the 21st century, then so be it, that is their right....but it is the right of the rest of rational society to loudly reject them, shout down their idiocy and marginalize them to the point of having less say than a sandwich board walker with an "the end in nigh" sign in Times Square.

I am tired of politeness and media treating these quacks as if they had ANYTHING of value to offer the rest of us. Our planet's climate is CHANGING RAPIDLY. Millions of species are going to be obliterated and our own species is going to suffer massively as a result. We have missed the boat on prevention already. Its too late to stop it now. We cannot re-freeze that much ice. However, we are smack dab in the middle of the most crucial time looking forward - our one and only chance at mitigation and a structured survival plan. If we spend the next decade doing as little as we have the last decade, then we condemn untold billions to death and doom the species chances in the future as well.

An ice flow the size of New York City disappears in 75 minutes and the world takes almost no notices? Its madness on an unbelievable scale.

17. Scale and magnitude of event illustrated starting at 3:30.

Before that, lots of film of glacial calving but it's hard to judge how large a piece broke off. So for me, useful info starts at 3:30 when it changes from raw footage to a lecture interpreting the event.

19. An excellent and sobering film

Take any Birfers you know -- I mean Climate Change Denial Freaks -- to see this. The evidence is stunning.
