Scientists say that without a doubt it's man-made global warming at work. This summer has been 9 degrees warmer than normal.

The breakup was seen by satellite. At least two giant icebergs formed along with smaller ones. The largest is almost the size of Manhattan.

This part of the world has been warming up much faster than the rest of the Earth.
