Dear Kate:

Oh, look:

Slab of Antarctic ice shelf collapses amid warming

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Satellite images show that a large hunk of Antarctica's Wilkins Ice Shelf has started to collapse in a fast-warming region of the continent, scientists said on Tuesday.

The area of collapse measured about 160 square miles of the Wilkins Ice Shelf, according to satellite imagery from the University of Colorado's National Snow and Ice Data Center.

In the spirit of fairness, Kate has a picture of a thermometer.

You were saying, Catprint?
