It seems an Adele penguin colony is experiencing a serious reduction in numbers due to the running aground of an enormous iceberg in antarctica, lengthening their feeding trips by 120 km. (H/T Wattsupwiththat)
The scientist in question is our friend, Chris Turney, from a couple of years back who ended up marooned with his team in the Antarctic ice, with some embarrassment one gathers from reading the various commentaries of the time. And he does not understand ice cap physics judging his explanation for the massive iceberg affecting the penguins,
Melting icecaps do not produce more icebergs: they don’t produce icebergs period but simply retreat back into the Antarctic continent.
On the contrary iceberg production is the result of excessive ice production at the Antarctic.
Little wonder the good professor got into difficulties last time, when he can’t understand that iceberg production is the result of massive ice production at the poles. So much ice is produced that it spills outwards away from the poles forming icebergs.
