Scientists have uncovered the largest volcanic region on Earth – two kilometres below the surface of the vast ice sheet that covers west Antarctica.
The project, by Edinburgh University researchers, has revealed almost 100 volcanoes – with the highest as tall as the Eiger, which stands at almost 4,000 metres in Switzerland.
Geologists say this huge region is likely to dwarf that of east Africa’s volcanic ridge, currently rated the densest concentration of volcanoes in the world.

The report implies this volcanic activity is a RESULT of climate change and not the cause. But how can anyone be certain of that?
Obviously, if it's the cause then we can't do anything to stop it. And that would mean the climate change crazies would have to shut up.
Wouldn't that be nice?
