It's a land of ice and fire. For the first time, an active volcano has been spotted rumbling away under the ice sheet of west Antarctica. It's further evidence that the frozen continent is anything but still. The heat from the volcano could speed up the demise of Antarctica's fragile ice sheet.

At least it sounds like the scientists aren't blaming "Global warming", OOPS I mean climate change for the actvity.

I always wonder, any time a volcano blows does this mean the Earth is shrinking or will the core eventually just be hollow in a few million years?

Wondering if the past eruption would have caused a significant ice cap melt and temporary climate change ... perhaps enough to trigger the event described as The Great Flood.
