Bad science from The Independent on climate change

I hate it when newspapers use bad science to support scare stories on climate change.

Apparently a huge iceberg has broken away from an Antarctic glacier. “If it melts it could raise sea levels” is the rather breathless caption under your picture of it.

It is already floating. If it melts it will make absolutely no difference to sea levels whatsoever.

It’s rubbish reporting like that which gives the serious topic of climate change a bad name.
