This year has been a terrible one for our climate and it may be about to get worse. according to geek.com, huge pieces of the pine island glacier have been shearing off. Scientists believe this isn't because of normal glacial movement but instead the result of huge cracks in the ice that are being exacerbated by warm ocean temperatures. the pine island glacier holds back the larger west arctic ice sheet, so if it goes theres a chance that the ice sheet may also slide into the sea.
