It's just eight hours seven hours anyway. So it's one. Two more Quebec's. You gotta go to Quebec City and continue that major distance like another sixteen site twenty four hours to drive. Maybe more because I bet you the the roads are all weird and small and curvy. But they must be nice. That's a good idea. And by my reckoning, the only road goes right along the coast. So you can go Quebec City. I I did that I went to Quebec City and then crossed over into Maine right at the top smy went. Maybe I don't know a hundred miles up, maybe maybe not that much, but you keep going and going and going. These French words port Cartier Bank. Komo. Rivera de loop. It's like another country up there. That is a good idea. Pack up the car and just go go go. I've always wondered what would happen if you just went. From Boston to Montreal and kept going and going and going just do north because you can get up. I think you can get to the Arctic circle just driving pretty close. You get to the northwestern passages. You get to places like none of Baffin bay. And you get very close to Greenland, and then you kind of close is lent. Okay. Check this out the distance. From. Boston to Quebec City. Boston to Quebec City..

"Million, ton iceberg that's eleven mega tons. Huge, right yeah and we've got some spectacular. Video Million iceberg looks like it is parked precariously close to this tiny village this is off of western Greenland that's called a calving iceberg grounded. Itself there but there are concerns by some of local residents that's the calving iceberg that just broke off you saw on the video there we'll, do this video I want to show this to you because look at that small way starting to move, up that small little channel okay that's a mini soon NAMI this has been known to happen what we're concerned about here is that this iceberg and a combination of warm, weather and. Heavy rainfall could cause a. Larger piece of an ice to calve off of the iceberg creating. An even larger Sonam ISA residents there along, the coast have actually evacuated there's about. One hundred and seventy inhabitants across that area and well good for good. Reason to look at this iceberg is roughly, the size of a stadium. Or Ken be but that's, just. The. Part that you and I see It's really the look the iceberg above the surface. Remember the majority of the iceberg. Is actually below the ocean surface so about, eighty to ninety percent of it is actually not. Visible to the human is so an ideal. Situation for this iceberg off the. Burg's wanna one but. By the way we can we it's not it's not invisible or whatever to the naked eye you just go underwater. Yeah. You could see it. Ideal. Situation for this iceberg off the. Coast of western Greenland would be for it to get caught up in the what is called the bath in current it would get lost in bath in bath in currents it. Would get lost in Baffin bay and crisis override but if the conditions there caused heavy rainfall and warm melting well this large iceberg which is, again ten to eleven megatons how your life is a little different from mine I mean I'm in Burbank, by kid goes to school tried to pay the bills Mortgage.

"KOA NewsRadio. Time, now we go from a. Story where I'm rooting for the, leopard I am not, rooting for the iceberg in this story okay I'm not for the record I'm. Not rooting, for the iceberg but. Imagine you know we deal with stuff like, this all the time in a very different. Way for instance I just mentioned fire if you are in the urban wildlife. Interface you have to worry about wildfires in Colorado it's just one of those. Mother nature things that we have to. Worry, about we'll magin being a tiny little village in Greenland and. Having, a Jain. Enormous eleven, million ton Berg perched right offshore now the iceberg itself Floating there. Isn't the challenge the challenges if it Cavs off a big enough iceberg it. Can create a su- NAMI that can. Drown, the entire town I mean that is not cool this iceberg is bigger than the village it's massive I. Mean absolutely massive so, here's what, they're hoping they're hoping that the strong winds, will push the iceberg out into Baffin bay and then everything's fine Unfortunately they might. Get a large amount of Warren precipitation they could further destabilize the iceberg and cause large piece to break. Off and, create that soon NAMI. This is just crazy by the way. Thirty three. People have, already moved. To safer places inland others. Have been asked to move their boats away from the iceberg and others are, just sticking it out So you know that's just that's. Not a word that is not a mother nature situation that I can ever foresee myself truly. Worrying about like oh no. This icebergs are, gonna drown a whole town we just don't have to. Think about that this is something this is probably a silly idea but can't you just laser it melted I mean it's. Just ice well but the problem is that you, create a lot of water more unstable What's the top of. It then you possibly could create a situation where it. Could cab something big enough to take out this the soon. Army wave would take out the soul. Visit I will tell. You I've worried about hurricanes. In my life I've worried about tornadoes in my life I've worried about. Blizzards I've, worried about torrential rains, I have never worried about being hit by a Sioux NAMI created by Colorado feel pretty good about not being an issue so there you go And I just thought so send a little prayer of to the iceberg gods that they spare this little tiny village in Greenland or that the people will have the good sense to actually just. Maybe vacate the area Yeah yeah yeah, you can't stop the, iceberg but you cannot be there if it happens just to suggest you know it's coming all right yeah Hello yeah we'll see but now it's time for the most exciting segment on the radio Of it's kind of the day All righty now season we.
