Once again, your source:

A strong increase in the number of global earthquakes is noted since 2010 that appears to have accelerated during the first quarter of 2014. However, there is no evidence that this increase represents a departure from temporally independent earthquake occurrence, as many of these earthquakes are local aftershocks of prior events.

That's over an immense timescale. IIRC, it's something like a 1% increase in brightness over about 100 million years.


And small changes in the Sun cause dramatic changes in the climate of planets like Earth.

Really Phage, we have seen the weakening of Earth's magnetic field, while in other parts strengthening, getting worse and worse, and in 2014 it took a turn for the worse. We now know that the molten iron jet in the northern hemisphere of Earth has trebled in speed. We are seeing an increase in geothermal activity, which you keep denying even after posting several sources in other threads. The increase in speed of the northern molten jet of Earth, the dramatic changes in Earth's magnetic field they would tell any rational person that it would lead to an increase in seismic and volcanic activity. Major "natural" changes are occurring on Earth, but you Phage live in denial.

ALRIGHT ...
WHAT the hell did the DNC do to the SEA LEVEL...

lol, they are releasing so much CO2 and hot air with their antics that it is melting the Antarctic sea level, which has scientists perplexed.

NO YOU FOOL!

It is doing, what it does. Couldn't stop it if you or we, tried. When I was in "school" the thing we worried about was a "man/human created ice age". Now it's "global warming ".😏These people that worry about this stuff, should be put on the first Mars exploration/"expedition". .. They'd appreciate a tall glass of man made OJ. If gravity ain't leaving the earth anytime soon? Don't get all bent about it. You'll "adapt" or die. Ain't that Darwin/science doing Sh*t? Lol! "But the scientist say.."!!! Who knows!!??! You could be the first "Homosapifish"! Don't fight it! It is, what it is.

Anyway, to give more evidence to the original topic. The following excerpt is from a website made by James Edward Kamis, a Geologist and AAPG member of 41 years. He posted this in 2014.


Evidence Shows Geothermal Activity Linked to West Antarctic Ice Melt

...
In a nutshell, increased global tectonic activity equates to more faulting and crustal plate movement which leads to more geothermal heat and in many cases associated fluid release from faults, fractures, and volcanoes that are more active. Altered heat and fluid release equates to changes in the climate.

This effect has been largely hidden from scientific investigation because the primary heat release is in under-explored and under-monitored deep ocean regions that contain major geological features such as; Rift Systems (crustal plate pull-apart boundaries), Subduction Zones (crustal plate converging boundaries), Transverse Fault Systems (crustal plate side sliding boundaries), and High Heat Flow Volcanic Regions.
...
Why is there selective melting of certain ice sheets, such as the Ross Ice Sheet, that extends out from the continent onto the Ross Sea? They are melting / retreating at a significant rate. A rate that is especially anomalous when compared to the majority of other Antarctic glaciers, including those that extend out onto the ocean, but are advancing!

For nearly ten years it has been suggested that heat flow from a geological feature was the likely reason for this local ice sheet melting. Recent publications strongly support, if not prove, that this is in fact the case.

Research shows that heat release from the active West Antarctic Rift system is indeed happening today. Refer to the map below that illustrates the position of the Western Antarctic Rift / Transantarctic Mountains. This notion is also supported by the recent publications that show the Ross Ice sheet is melting from beneath, not from above. This is due to geologically induced geothermal heat circulating from the West Antarctic Rift System, which extends beneath the ice sheet.

Earth is expanding so it's getting warmer without increasing sea levels from melted ice?

And to remind some people about the fact that geothermal activity has been melting glaciers in the Antarctic.

Researchers Find Major West Antarctic Glacier Melting from Geothermal Sources

This one is from not that long ago.

Scientists discover 91 volcanoes below Antarctic ice sheet

The problem is that "there are people, including scientists", who live in denial and don't want to accept facts about "Melting glaciers and Climate Change".
