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

http://www.newsweek.com/antarctica-melting-below-mantle-plume-almost-hot-yellowstone-supervolcano-705086  11/8/17

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.

magma melting Greenland glacier ice

Wow - isn't this the same new theory as in Antarctica ?

kind of blows the whole *man made* climate change theory back down the throats of the libs doesn't it.

don't expect the very lucrative man made climate change industrial complex to admit this any time soon.

What say you EXXON?  time to buy ?   wink

Not a whisker of truth in this but I post it to our thread for balance.

A Veneer of Certainty Stoking Climate Alarm

A (balanced) must read if you would like to keep up on this issue.

https://cei.org/sites/default/files/Rupert%20Darwall%20-%20A%20Veneer%20of%20Certainty%20Stoking%20Climate%20Alarm.pdf

From the article:  Climate scientist, Dr. William Collins of the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Speaking in 2014 at an American Physical Society climate workshop, Collins, who was a lead author of the chapter evaluating climate models in the 2013 Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) Fifth Assessment Report, talked of the challenges of dealing with several sources of uncertainty. “One of them is the huge uncertainties even in the historical forcings,” he said, referring to the natural and anthropogenic factors that affect the climate.2 Commenting on the “structural certainty” of climate models, he observed that there were “a number of processes in the climate system we just do not understand from basic physical principles. ... We understand a lot of the physics in its basic form. We don’t understand the emergent behavior that results from it.”

Snow in the Sahara, hottest desert in the world,  just as I was calling for Trump to buy Siberia as a hedge against global warming.

"Sahara Desert covered in 15 inches of SNOW as freak weather blankets sand dunes
HEAVY snow has covered the Sahara Desert in a freak winter weather storm."

The cause, of course, is 'climate change' messing with the jetstream.

Funny, they we're predicting the end of snow because of global warming.

Oceans were warming faster 12,000 years ago.

http://www.breitbart.com/news/heat-loss-form-earths-interior-responsible-for-sliding-ice-sheets/

I wonder heat loss off and on accounts for the ice ages - another theory is  it was from all the farting of the dinosaurs and  mega fauna .
I would not have wanted to be near a mammoth passing gas............that certainly would have contributed to global warming 30 k years ago

So the PRK's plastic bag ban was more Kalifornian feel good stupidity?

No, it was a matter of not contributing to the problem.

Bears repeating and exploring: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-4970214/95-plastic-oceans-comes-just-TEN-rivers.html

95% of the plastic in the oceans comes from 10 rivers in Asia and Africa..  This is a BIG story.  Being told I was the problem even though I emit zero litter, I could not imagine how my plastic bags end up in the ocean.  Nor do I see how even a coastal neighborhood of San Francisco, where the median home costs $1.3 million, is letting their garbage blow out of their cans and into the sea.  But that's not where it's coming from, whether they ban plastic bags or don't.

Garbage pickup is like sanitary sewer systems and clean drinking water.  If you are in a very poor area, you don't have any.  So garbage sits, rots or gets blown or washed away. 

Poor people have poor ways, but isn't polluting the ocean against some kind of international law?  "Law of the Sea Treaty"?   wink

Knowing the source means this can be solved, and bag taxes and bans placed on clean, healthy, law abiding  people aren't the problem or the solution.

Maybe we can build 10 giant strainers instead of waiting for it all to drift into a new continent.
