kallahar writes "It is hard to believe that 500 billion tonnes of ice sheet has disintegrated in less than a month. ... US scientists also reported on Tuesday that an iceberg more than nine times larger than Singapore had broken off Antarctica. It is more than 40 miles wide and 53 miles long." If the larger sheets broke off, the sea level can rise by over 50 feet. - BBC Sci/Tech
