A chunk of ice twice the size of Manhattan broke off from a Greenland glacier this week, according to researchers. CNN reports that it is too early to blame global warming, but Markey points to the summer's record heat waves and the "extreme weather season" overall.

“This massive new iceberg is yet another blockbuster event in what is fast becoming an historically troubling extreme weather season. Batman may be rising in theaters, but icebergs and heat records are falling across the globe as our folly of global warming inaction is finally coming back to haunt us," Markey said in a press release. 

“When Republicans like Mitt Romney reject the science surrounding climate change, and block the solutions to this grave challenge, they become complicit in the acceleration and intensification of extreme weather events around the world and here in America," he charged.
