Arctic Ice Breaking Up

The Ayles Ice Shelf is in the news for possibly the first time ever, and it's in a bad way. A piece of ice apparently the size of 11 000 football pitches (is that UK or American ?) has broken off.
Thanks to Tony for mentioning the BBC NEWS link, but I then read it again today on Boing Boing.
There's a CNN article here.
You should be OK as long as you live at least 7m above sea level...
