Wilkins Ice Shelf Hanging by a Thread

While the AGW denialists play dishonest cherry-picking games, and display their ignorance in continually confusing weather with climate, major ice formations that have stood for thousands of years like the Wilkins Ice Shelf are collapsing. Here is a structure that was 4,000 square kilometers just 60 years ago, hanging by a thread 500 meters wide. One needs no ideology to understand the implications of this, but one certainly needs one to deny it.

The video claimed right up front that the shrinking ice shelf was due -- not to global warming -- but to manmade global warming. Isn't that something they should've proved?

Why? Manmade global warming is solidly supported science that gets more support by the day. All we can expect other scientists to do is go with the best explanation, and AGW is it.
