Ice cap thaw may awaken Icelandic volcanoes
Reuters ^ | April, 16, 2010 | Alister Doyle

OSLO (Reuters) – A thaw of Iceland's ice caps in coming decades caused by climate change may trigger more volcanic eruptions by removing a vast weight and freeing magma from deep below ground, scientists said on Friday.

We knew this was coming, I'm surprised it took them 2 entire days to tie the Volcano in Iceland to Global Warming.

Shouldn’t the opposite be happening?

LOL!

And I'm still waiting for the first Freeper to say "It's Bush's fault."

Iceland is the only (I believe) part of the mid-Atlantic Ridge that breaks the ocean’s surface. Iceland volcanoes are due to the continental plates spreading apart — i.e., the Atlantic Ocean getting a little wider each year.

The Warmist claptrap is just that. Not that that will stop the warmists and their lapdog media.

I am confused. Didn’t 0bama talk about a volcano in Hawaii? Obviously no one knew what he was talking about but when has that stopped him.

I’d been waiting for the warmists to put out some nonsensical tie between the Icelandic volcano and their fantasy global warming, and here it is.

Well most of the ice in the north is already floating on water so we can take that out of play immediately.

This is truly rich - climate change causes the volcanos to go off because the tops, covered by snow, has melted away, thus removing weight and the cooling effect “scientist say”!
Only a child’s mind could conceive of such a chain of events!

Quick, give those Scientists some $$$$’s to study the situation and reach a Government funded Scientific study “Unbiased recommendation”.

Throw money at the Scientists, that will stop it.

Maybe this is true. Won’t the volcanic ash block some of the sun and the earth will cool again? Isn’t this how it works? Warmer....cooler....warmer....cooler.....

Actually, wouldn’t the greater amounts of ice increase the pressure of the magma and lead to bigger erruptions?

It would be a lot cheaper to throw scientists into volcanoes.

Weight of ice holds down volcanoes, even a third grader knows that is stupid. Eruptions don’t raise temps, they lower them. Another fact they ignore.

And of course, volcanic activity just below the surface didn’t have anything to do with the ice melting above it...

Dude, I was a U.S. Navy sailor for 12 years and have been a Freeper for about a decade. I have avoided crossing the expletive line because of the site’s rules. I highly suggest that you avoid the salty language because you will be booted from the BEST site if you post stuff like that. Please behave better than those scum over at the insane lefty sites.

I have another, just as valid theory: Icelandic volcanoes will awaken as the level of ignorance rises.

I know this theory will really get them: The Icelandic volcanoes are God showing his anger at the killing of unborn babies through abortion.

What is the holy sacrament of environmentalism? There must be something that keeps this false religion going.

Does Icelandic law allow that? Let me pack my mukluks and check in with the wife first.

"But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: for men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away, for his name is Obama."

Duu-uh. How about the ice is melting because the volcanoes are active and the crustal heat flow is higher?

But what do you expect from people who routinely put the cart before the horse?

I believe the weight of the snow is minuscule to the power of a hot headed volcano!

The temperature of snow is keeping the mountain cool? Against a hot magma of how thousands of degrees?

Unbelievable!

I know others on this thread said that they were waiting to see how the Cult of the Global Warming gods (or 'Gorons' for short) was going to connect this to the volcanic eruption -- but I have to say I didn't see this one coming...

Silly you! The floating ice is pressing down on the water, holding the magma in. If the ice is gone, the volcanoes will erupt!! QED.
