Explained by fracking which allows natural gas to replace coal. 
I'm sure that's what they plan to discuss in Paris...

Earth's environment is more complicated than we knew.  Or did we know that?

Plume (geology) a rising column of hot, low viscosity material (lava) within the earth's mantle, which is believed to be responsible for linear oceanic island chains and flood basalts

NASA DISCOVERS MANTLE PLUME ALMOST AS HOT AS YELLOWSTONE SUPERVOLCANO THAT'S MELTING ANTARCTICA FROM BELOW

"data suggests mantle heat at this location comes from a rift—a fracture in the Earth’s crust where heat can rise up."

 wink

I am shocked a militant left wing rag like Newsweek even mentions the mantle plume as melting Antarctica ice.

I do notice they do not come come right out and make the OBVIOUS connection:

That it is very likely this  that is causing melting on the Western Antarctic glacier front and not *man made* climate change.
