Gloworms Will Blame Anything

You just can’t make this stuff up. Now there’s a study that says melting ice causes volcanoes. It seems to me they’re getting desperate by trying to reverse the facts. Fire melts Ice. Ice does not cause Fire. Of course they could be getting their talking points from Rosie O. (first time in history fire ever melted steel)

Increased volcanic activity is linked to ice melted by the effects of global warming.

So much ice in Iceland has melted in the past century that the pressure on the land beneath has lessened, which allows more of the rock deep in the ground to turn to magma. Until the ice melted, the pressure was so intense that the rock remained solid.

Carolina Pagli, of the University of Leeds, led research which calculated that over the past century the production of magma had increased by 10 per cent.

The research team, reporting their findings in the journal Geophysical Research Letters, said an extra 1.4 cu km of magma has been created under the Vatnajökull ice-cap in the past 100 years.

Since 1890 the ice-cap has lost 10 per cent of its mass, which has allowed the land to rise by up to 25m (82ft) a year. The volume lost between 1890 and 2003 is estimated at 435 cu km.

How long it will take before the extra magma erupts in Iceland and other regions of the North Atlantic Ridge remains uncertain. It is formed at depths of 15 to 112 km, and Dr Pagli estimated it will be a century or two before it is ejected by volcanoes.

Now I’m no scientist, but I do know the smell of bullsh!t. To put this crap out there and say it might be a century, or two, before anything happens is just more from the Global Warming Cult trying to get people to drink the Kool-Aid.

  1. Well, we don’t have any ice in Florida. Where’s our damn volcanos?

  2. No, no, no. In your area, global warming causes HURRICANES!! Y’all must’ve skipped a step there, and went straight to hurricanes….. 😕

  3. Well, we don’t have to worry this year, then. The UN said so!

  4. I hear Algore is already planning a trip to NY to over rule them. After all, no one can call the Goracle wrong, the debate is settled. 😈

  5. If you haven’t already, see the IPCC Review Editors Comments Online at Climate Audit. Interesting for when you have some time to read through.

  6. Haven’t seen that one yet, thanks.
