NASA Finds Huge Underground Heat-Source in Antarctic Responsible for Ice Shelf Crumbling

A MASSIVE subterranean heat source – identical to that triggering Hawaii’s volcano - has been discovered under the West Antarctic Ice Shelf – a glacial area often cited by environmentalists as a ‘climate change’ disaster waiting to happen.

But NASA scientists have discovered a fiercely hot geothermal heat source known as a mantle plume underneath the Antarctica’s Marie Byrd Land.

In the year 2000 an iceberg the size of Wales broke away from the shelf and the whole of the western edge is famously unstable.

Many environmentalists blamed man-made climate change.
