SpaceJellyfish,

@CelloMomOnCars Sea ice stabilizes the land ice behind it. Meaning that collapsing ice shelfs can have dramatic effects on sea level rise when the glaciers behind them mobilize themselves.

@CelloMomOnCars How many more will break off, with apparently no one in the media noticing or reporting?
Perhaps this would get more public awareness as an alternative to sports betting, the odds in which section of the ice shelf and when it would break off could be subject to betting.
At least then the public would realize that they’re betting on their future by not doing anything about climate change.
