Interesting take with Vice News & calving. Short video, make sure to make it to 3:40+ of vid.

There's no emoji that suits this video!

Sounds pretty serious! I had no idea that one glacier could account for 4% of the current sea level rise.

When it happens, it will happen quick. Years not decades. Most likely seeing the start of the acceleration.
I have no doubt humanity will adapt, but so many species will be lost.

yes I agree with you

I don't see how humanity will adapt. Cockroaches might survive.

@AstralSmoke It seems more likely that only SOME of humanity will survive.

@AmmaRE007 agreed. Was talking species.
