Good morning. One of the largest icebergs ever recorded is about to snap off the Antarctic ice shelf. The iceberg, which covers 1,900 square miles (as big as Delaware) and stands 100 stories high (as tall as the One World Trade Center), is breaking off due to warming ocean temperatures. If its parent ice shelf were to follow suit, scientists estimate that global sea levels would rise about 20 feet. Here’s what’s good in gear: a limited-edition Nike sneaker, face moisturizer, a collection of raw leather accessories and much more.
And here are some fresh stories to start the day.
