They call it B17B, or, as I prefer, BMFI – Big mother-fucking iceberg. It broke off from Antarctica about 10 years ago and is  about 140 km square, 19 km long and 8 wide. And it’s headed for Western Australia. WA? Icebergs? Part of WA is in the tropics – admittedly the northern bit. I bet the climate change deniers will use it as evidence that the world is cooling: lookie here, we’re getting icebergs in WA; it can’t be that hot.

(The legitimacy of this photo is guaranteed by its dodgy quality, although I must admit I didn’t take it)
