"As use of the Arctic increases in the future with declining sea-ice, and as polar ice sheets are increasingly losing mass as well, the iceberg risk is likely to increase in the future, rather than decline," said co-author Professor Grant Bigg.

I don't care what so called experts say. And iceberg did not sink the Titanic.

Someone clogged up one of the toilets and flushed it. Not realizing that it would keep running. It flooded the whole ship and sank it. So indeed. A TURD sank the Titanic!!
