A new study done by the National Academy of Sciences claims volcanoes have been major factors in thinning the West Antarctic ice.

    This interesting study was done by Shroeder However those with pre-conceived ideas always jump to conclusions, particularly if they lack the scientific skills to do so. It is remarkable ability to select evidence and consider it factual that never fails to amuse. Here is what Shroeder himself says on the matter ““The fastest glacial changes are happening where the ocean is warmer,” Schroeder said. “Geothermal heating is not enough by itself to have caused the observed changes.”

    In response to those who are using his study to deny climate change, Schroeder confirmed that volcanic activity is not the dominant force of ice loss and rising sea levels.

    “If you want to understand how the glaciers are changing, you can’t just look at the ice, you can’t just look at the climate system, you can’t just look at the geology, you have to look at the whole picture,” he said.

    I have known about this for years..it’s also what causes El Nino and La Nina..underwater volcanoes off the coast of South America…
