Strange Occurrence:Who Knew That Glaciers Could Bleed

This was a rather disturbing sight for local boat-goers in Antarctica as they stumbled upon a glacier that was seemingly leaking what looked like blood.
The perceived gore had a perfectly scientific explanation that's understandable through the laws of basic chemistry.
. Rather than the glacier being injured, the rust-coloring of its streaks were caused by salt water that was naturally tainted by iron oxide. This chemical reaction caused the blood-red coloring and produced a pretty wild effect. However, it is pretty striking in the case for global warming.
