You Want Global Warming
Now You Have Got it, Fuckers By William Rapier

The rapid melting of ice in Antarctica could be due to a supervolcano lying under the ice:

“Scientists at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) have found new evidence to support a theory that the breakup of Antarctic ice may be caused in part by a massive geothermal heat source, with output close to the scale of Yellowstone National Park.

A geothermal heat source called a mantle plume – a hot stream of subterranean molten rock that rises through the Earth's crust – may explain the breathing effect visible on Antarctica's Marie Byrd Land and elsewhere along the massive ice sheet.

While the mantle plume is not a new discovery, the recent research indicates it may explain why the ice sheet collapsed in a previous era of rapid climate change 11,000 years ago and why the sheet is breaking up so quickly now.

"I thought it was crazy. I didn't see how we could have that amount of heat and still have ice on top of it," said Hélène Seroussi of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California.

Seroussi and Erik Ivins of JPL used the Ice Sheet System Model (ISSM), a mathematical depiction of the physics of ice sheets developed by scientists at JPL and the University of California, Irvine. Seroussi then tweaked the ISSM to hunt for natural heat sources as well as meltwater deposits.

This warm water lubricates the ice sheet from below, allowing glaciers to slide off into the sea. Studying meltwater in western Antarctica may allow scientists to estimate how much ice will be lost in future.”

All this means is that human-caused climate change is besides the point. The supervolcano could melt Antarctica in record time, creating water world, and drowning most coastal cities.

This is the best news I have had since the run on hyper-killer plagues. When the elite attempt to exterminate us by killer robots, they had better ensure that said robots are water-proof.

We are just so fucked…it is even mildly amusing as we drag the rotting carcass of this civilization to its grave.
