Submission + - Magma May Be Melting Greenland Ice? (yahoo.com)

dnormant writes: "In recent years, Greenland's ice has been melting more and flowing faster into the sea — a record amount of ice melted from the frozen mass this summer, according to recently released data — and Earth's rising temperatures are suspected to be the main culprit.

But, clues to a new natural contribution to the melt arose when scientists discovered a thin spot in the Earth's crust under the northeast corner of the Greenland Ice Sheet where heat from Earth's insides could seep through, scientists will report here this week at a meeting of the American Geophysical Union."
