Greenland Melt

13 December 2020

Remaining on the theme of unforeseen facts cropping up at a later date we have a story at www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-9029805/ … Japanese researchers have mapped a plume of molten rock, otherwise known as lava, risin beneath the Greenland ice cap. To do this they analysed the speed of seismic waves travelling beneath the earth. The molten rock caused geothermal activity in the North Atlantic. All over the North Atlantic it would seem. Not just in Greenland but on the island of Jan Mayen and Iceland. These two have active volcanoes with their own mantle plumes. However, Svalbard is another archipelago with geothermal activity. Until now the reasons for all this have been poorly understood. Basically, they are saying that the melting of ice beneath the Greenland ice sheet is due to the heat of molten rock rising up from the Mantle. It is apparently contributing to sea level rise – per mainstream theory. It has nothing to do with co2 forced global warming it would seem.
