It would take all 30 rockets at full power, burning 3000 pounds of fuel a second, for 30 days to accelerate the berg to 1 mile an hour.
3000*30*24*3600 = 777,600,000,000 pounds of jet fuel. To accelerate the iceberg 1 mile. Oops, that's for just one rocket engine. Okay times another 30.
For an ocean voyage of what - 4, 5 thousand miles?
It’s actually quite the calculation to wrap one’s head around.
Of course, one mile an hour head of steam isn’t particularly impressive in the face of ocean currents and cross currents between there and Saudi.
Hell just getting out of the roaring 40s without winding up heading for South America would require a fair amount of calculation to guesstimate properly.
How much fuel is burned to process those trillions of pounds of jet fuel to begin with? How much CO2 would be produced during the inefficient rocket burns?
How about the amount of carbon-dioxide that would be produced manufacturing those rocket engines and fuel holding containers.
There are sand dunes outside of Columbia SC showing a former coast line there 200 ft higher than it is today.
Bob, are you familiar with the Atlantic Seaboard Fall Line
? Interesting geologic stuff there.
