No, not global warming.

Caused by isolated volcanic activity.
The global warming scammers are set to use this as climate change proof and not the real cause, volcanic ground warming.


8000 years ago is the last ash layer observed in the layers of ice. About the time many ancient ports were submerged forever (Atlantis) The ruins submerged off Japans coast.


""“My first thought was, ‘OK, maybe it’s just coincidence.’ But then I looked more closely and realized that the mountains were actually volcanoes and there was an age progression to the range. The volcanoes closest to the seismic events were the youngest ones.”
The events were weak and very low frequency, which strongly suggested they weren’t tectonic in origin. While low-magnitude seismic events of tectonic origin typically have frequencies of 10 to 20 cycles per second, this shaking was dominated by frequencies of 2 to 4 cycles per second.

Will the new volcano erupt?
“Definitely,” Lough said. “In fact, because the radar shows a mountain beneath the ice, I think it has erupted in the past, before the rumblings we recorded.”
Will the eruptions punch through a kilometer or more of ice above it?
The scientists calculated that an enormous eruption, one that released 1,000 times more energy than the typical eruption, would be necessary to breach the ice above the volcano.
On the other hand, a subglacial eruption and the accompanying heat flow will melt a lot of ice. “The volcano will create millions of gallons of water beneath the ice — many lakes full,” Wiens said.
This water will rush beneath the ice toward the sea and feed into the hydrological catchment of the MacAyeal Ice Stream, one of several major ice streams draining ice from Marie Byrd Land into the Ross Ice Shelf.
By lubricating the bedrock, it will speed the flow of the overlying ice, perhaps increasing the rate of ice-mass loss in West Antarctica.""

"West Antarctica to melt into the sea. 10-13 dt sea level rise."

This is a major issue regardless of how it happened. Are you trying to discredit that?

10-13 dt - do you mean ft (feet)

How long until the usual hysterics start demanding we turn over vast powers and resources to the government to "do something about it", when no one can do anything about it?

We can prepare and try to troubleshoot for the impact something like this can have on the future. No sense in being dinosaurs and simply do nothing.

Who said " Never let a crisis go to waste"? So increased volcanic activity is to blame but we have to pay more global warming taxes to pretend we can stop it.
Screw Hillary, I think Obama is the one with worse brain damage.

My issue is to raise the sea level 10-13 ft... in all major bodies of water (since water can't rise in one area only)... that takes an overwhelming large volume of melting to take place over a long period of time which includes winters. I don't see it happening.
