Nothing To See Here, Move Along, Move Along...

Live Science reported this disturbing news on Tuesday-
A vast ice shelf hanging on by a thin strip looks to be the next chunk to break off from the Antarctic Peninsula, the latest sign of global warming's impact on Earth's southernmost continent.

Scientists are shocked by the rapid change of events.

And notice the difference in wording in how Fox News' site reported the story-
An ice shelf 10 times the size of Manhattan is holding on to the Antarctic Peninsula by a thread, a possible sign of global warming's impact.

Hat tip to a commenter at Will Bunch's blog, who snarks, "In related news, Faux News reported a body was found with a hole in the front of the head, a larger exit hole in the rear of the head, a smoking .357 handgun next to the body, in what was reported as a possible sign of a gun shot."

Don't worry, I'm sure we'll get around to doing something about all of this in a few decades or so, if we're not all underwater by then. I saw some lady on the subway with a reusable grocery bag, so we're definitely on top of this.
