An article in the Bangkok Post says that a volcano under the West Antarctic Ice Sheet, that last erupted 2000 years ago, is now active and may be responsible for melting ice and retreating glaciers in that part of the continent (The fire below, Bangkok Post, April 28, 2008). At the same time the global warming alarmists claim that these changes are man-made and that they are caused by carbon dioxide emissions from fossil fuels as predicted by their computer model of the earth's climate. This computer model is the source of all of those doomsday scenarios one often finds in the Bangkok Post. However, the effects of volcanic and other geothermal activity on climate are not included in this model even though there is sufficient evidence that the Mount Pinatubo eruption in 1991 caused climate change on a global scale. Given the new data on Antarctic volcanoes one can only conclude that the climate model of the global-warmists is flawed. Its forecasts, however scary, are not credible.
