For many years, we have been inspired in the media that the melting of glaciers in Antarctica and Greenland is the result of human activity. Warm currents and powerful air currents cannot explain why the ice caps are melting abnormally fast. In fact, the reason for the melting of glaciers is internal processes taking place in the bowels of the Earth and many scientists know about it and prove it in their scientific research. In this article, we will present these studies, and you will also find out why they are limited in dissemination to a wide audience.

It has long been known that currently glaciers are melting catastrophically, and the rate of their melting is constantly increasing. If in 2012 the ice of Antarctica melted by 76 billion tons per year, then in 2018 this figure was already 219 billion tons, while 90% of all ice on the planet is located here, and here they disappear the fastest. 

Much is said about this in the same media and this topic is being promoted, but we are not told how the ice of Antarctica is actually melting. Glacier melting occurs exclusively in its western part, whilein the east, center and north record cold weather (-98 ° C). A logical question arises: why is Antarctica melting on only one side? The answer lies in the geology of West Antarctica.

In the left picture we see an increase in temperature in the western part of Antarctica, the right picture is a geological map of Antarctica.

West Antarctica consists of thin blocks of the earth’s crust, which are separated from each other by large tectonic faults, rift zones, and in these zones more heat is released than in the center or east of the continent. For example, the Thwaites Glacier is known, which is melting at an abnormally high rate. 

Based on data from aeromagnetic observations, German and British geophysicists have mapped the geothermal heat flow of West Antarctica and found that under the ice of the Thwaites glacier there is a zone of receipt of a large amount of geothermal heat from the Earth’s interior. 

According to scientists, this is due to the fact that the glacier lies in a tectonic depression, where the earth’s crust is much thinner than, for example, in East Antarctica. It is also interesting that West Antarctica is one of the largest volcanic regions on Earth.

It was revealed that more than 138 volcanoes sleep under the ice of Antarctica, which are now much more active than previously thought in the scientific community. 

For example, on Mary Bird Earth, American researchers discovered an active subglacial volcano, which in 2010 and 2011 was recorded activity, including the abnormally high mobility of the glacier above it. And under the Pine Island Glacier – the fastest melting glacier in Antarctica, responsible for about 25% of ice loss -British scientists discovered a volcano , which is the cause of this melting. It is a previously unknown active volcano buried deep under the ice.

Interestingly, the ice thickness in Antarctica is 40 km, while in the west it is about 17-25 km.

An active volcano is evidenced by the rare isotopes of helium found in seawater, which come only from the Earth’s mantle. According to Professor Karen Haywood, one of the co-authors of ‘Evidence for an Active Source of Volcanic Heat Beneath the Pine Island Glacier ‘, geothermal heat from a West Antarctic reef heats ocean water, which in turn accelerates the melting of the Antarctic ice sheet.

Research data suggests that it is the internal processes occurring in the bowels of the Earth that contribute to the rapid melting of the Antarctic ice sheet, and not at all an anthropogenic factor, as most media claim. There are a huge number of volcanoes under the ice of Antarctica. 

This is also proved by NASA experts, who, based on data from their satellites gave evidence that under the surface of West Antarctica there is a large magma plume, that is, a stream of hot magma that rises and spreads under the earth’s crust. Hot magma bursts deep beneath the surface of Antarctica and forms a giant lake beneath Mary Byrd Earth’s glaciers.

Usually magma approaches the Earth’s surface only at the edges of tectonic plates, but Mary Bird’s Land is far from such border areas. Interestingly, there are other such places in the world: Yellowstone National Park and Hawaii. 

Scientists’ calculations show that rocks and layers of ice located in the Mary Bird Land area warm up with almost the same force as in the Yellowstone supervolcano, and the heat flux ranges from 150 to 180 mW / m2, which is about three times more than heating of adjacent layers of rocks.

No less intense melting of glaciers is taking place on another part of the planet in Greenland. Research in October 2020 showed that ice in Greenland is now melting faster than in the past 12,000 years. 

It is also surprising that in these studies, Professor at the University of Buffalo (USA) Jason Brainer speaks of the need to reduce CO2 emissions into the atmosphere and the anthropogenic factor of the melting of Greenland’s glaciers. However, the reason for the melting of ice is also the processes taking place in the bowels of the Earth.

An international group of Russian scientists from the Schmidt Institute of Physics of the Earth RAS researched the process of melting glaciers in Greenland. Using seismic tomography data, scientists saw that magma flow rises from the center of the core to the surface below the central part of Greenland, where the largest number of subglacial lakes are located. 

Scientists have calculated a theoretical heat flow that corresponds to a given magma chamber and found that this heat is enough to heat the base of the glacier to the temperature of ice melting. Scientists also found that where there is no ice, there are rock outcrops due to the manifestation of volcanism, and this volcanism is a trail of a hot spot that passed under Greenland for 35-80 million years, and is now under Iceland.

Displacement of this hotspot 80 million years ago and moving it to the Iceland region 10 million years ago.

In the last figure, we can see what effect the passage of this hotspot had on the glaciers of Greenland. In the area of ​​its route, the temperature of the earth’s interior rises. In fact, this point is a stream of magma, which stands still, and pieces of the lithosphere float above it like ice floes. 

When a lithospheric plate floats over this stream, it burns a trace in it, forming a thinning of the lithosphere. After such burning, magma from the bowels of the Earth enters closer to its surface, which increases its temperature and heats the ice caps of Greenland.

Thus, scientists came to the conclusion that the decrease in the mass of the Greenland ice sheet is associated with its passage over the ancient mantle plume. In their opinion, this hot spot is already about 250 million years old, and when it originated, it rose to the surface of the Earth in the form of a large mushroom. And this mushroom came into contact with the lithosphere in the Siberian plate, somewhere in the Norilsk region, which led to the biggest disaster in the history of our planet. 

The emissions of millions of cubic kilometers of basaltic lavas completely changed the entire ecosystem of the Earth and led to the extinction of 90% of all living creatures on Earth. This period of time is recorded in history as the Permian extinction, which is considered the most powerful extinction in the history of our planet.

Interestingly, the figure on the right shows how the Hawaiian volcanic island chain was formed.  According to scientists, there is the same plume as in Greenland.

Currently, Icelandic volcanic activity is on the rise and begins to wake up after a long sleep of 800 years. A huge number of earthquakes are recorded. Considering that Iceland is an island of volcanic origin, where there are more than 100 volcanoes, taking into account global climate change, this can bring a lot of trouble. 

Recall that the eruption of the Laki volcano claimed the lives of more than 6 million people in 1783, and the eruption of the Eyjafjallajökull volcano in 2010 was colossal.

Eyjafjallajökull volcano is not a classic volcano, because it is a glacier. After numerous earthquakes, a crack appeared on its top, from which millions of tons of hot lava burst out at a monstrous speed.

The height of the Eyjafjallajökull volcano is 1,666 meters.  The ash column was almost 9 km high, making it the highest point on Earth in 2010.

Thus, the above studies of many scientists and research groups prove that the glaciers of Greenland and Antarctica are melting not because of the anthropogenic factor, but because of volcanic heat. But the media in different countries tell us about the anthropogenic factor and the associated global warming. 

Instead of worrying about the problems associated with global climate change, some start to make money on it. We are told about global warming due to CO2 emissions, but in fact, glaciers are melting from the bottom up due to internal heat, because hot magma rises to them.

Under the glaciers of Greenland and Antarctica there is now warm water, which is heated by subglacial volcanoes. This shocking information was first released to a large audience in an international online conference. “Global Crisis. Time of Truth” December 4, 2021, on the platform of Creative Society

It was said there that the causes of anomalous processes causing changes throughout the planet lie in the depths of the Earth, or rather in the very core. And this is happening right now, because these are cyclical changes on a planetary scale associated with a period of 12,000 years into which we are now entering, and the melting of glaciers is only part of the chain of those climatic events that will lead to an imminent catastrophe in the near future. 

Therefore, today it is extremely necessary to unite the entire world scientific community and build a Creative Society in order to thoroughly study the real causes of climate change and prevent a big disaster that can take the lives of many people around the planet.
