Press Release - First evidence of under-ice volcanic eruption in Antarctica
Issue date: 20 Jan 2008
Number: 02/2008
http://www.antarctica.ac.uk/bas_research/scie...
Check the date... every one of the references in your link occurs BEFORE this discovery, so there is no way the could account for the effect of said volcanoes.
OMG! Could melting ice be caused by natural events? Warmist will be quick not say not so... break out that rolodex!... we gotta have a study handy to "debunk" this one.
LOL
You have the link wrong.

http://www.antarctica.ac.uk/press/press_relea...

Your link itself debunks your claim; no need to look elsewhere.

“This eruption occurred close to Pine Island Glacier on the West Antarctic Ice Sheet. The flow of this glacier towards the coast has speeded up in recent decades and it may be possible that heat from the volcano has caused some of that acceleration. However, it cannot explain the more widespread thinning of West Antarctic glaciers that together are contributing nearly 0.2mm per year to sea-level rise. This wider change most probably has its origin in warming ocean waters.”

Actually, not at all-- unless they can tell us about the condition of all the sea floor surfaces.

Do they? Otherwise, on what do they base that conclusion?

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s most accurate, up-to-date temperature data confirm the United States has been cooling for at least the past decade. The NOAA temperature data are driving a stake through the heart of alarmists claiming accelerating global warming.

Responding to widespread criticism that its temperature station readings were corrupted by poor citing issues and suspect adjustments, NOAA established a network of 114 pristinely sited temperature stations spread out fairly uniformly throughout the United States. Because the network, known as the U.S. Climate Reference Network (USCRN), is so uniformly and pristinely situated, the temperature data require no adjustments to provide an accurate nationwide temperature record. USCRN began compiling temperature data in January 2005. Now, nearly a decade later, NOAA has finally made the USCRN temperature readings available.

According to the USCRN temperature readings, U.S. temperatures are not rising at all – at least not since the network became operational 10 years ago. Instead, the United States has cooled by approximately 0.4 degrees Celsius, which is more than half of the claimed global warming of the twentieth century.

Of course, 10 years is hardly enough to establish a long-term trend. Nevertheless, the 10-year cooling period does present some interesting facts.

As usual, you argue from ignorance.

Active volcanism beneath the West Antarctic ice sheet and implications for ice-sheet stability

Here we present aerogeophysical evidence for active volcanism and associated elevated heat flow beneath the WAIS near the critical region where ice streaming begins.

^^^The green troll's argument for global warming curing droughts is commendable. What's not to love about global warming?

CO2 isn't heat, heat comes from the sun. Carbon dioxide is so beautiful, it is transparent to visible sunlight and only shines by Earthlight. Without water vapor and carbon dioxide in our atmosphere, we'd starve and freeze.

Mankind has always adapted to climate change, Dubai is building an indoor city. Why buy into mitigating climate change without even a single experimental test to show either it can cause more good than harm or benefits more than it costs?

As the seas warm, they emit carbon dioxide into the air like an open soda pop. There is 25 times more CO2 in the aquasphere than in the atmosphere.

Reported. global sea ice area, as of Sunday morning, stood at 0.991 million square kilometers above average.(The figure was arrived at by adding the Northern Hemisphere anomaly and the Southern Hemisphere anomaly. A graph provided by The Cryosphere Today showed the global anomaly as 1.005 million square kilometers.)
Although early computer models predicted a diminishment of both Northern Hemisphere and Southern Hemisphere sea ice due to anthropogenic global warming, subsequent modeling has posited that the results of warming around Antarctica would, counter-intuitively, generate sea ice growth.
The steady growth of Antarctic sea ice and its influence on global sea ice appeared to provide a public relations problem, at a minimum, for those warning of global warming’s menace.

Increased ice levels means more displacement which means higher sea levels. Just the opposite of the melting ice claims by the climate clowns. Somehow,I assume they think everyone is as stupid as they are, think that melting ice caps will add to the sea levels globally. Funny how there is no increase on the west coast but there is on the east coast.(But, don't tell them about erosion and the continental shelf. Shhhh, facts scare them.)
