Oh, you mean like a whole tectonic plate or two moving at once- the very thing I have been warning can, and I suspect has, occurred before in the distant past? Oh, you mean the very thing that a senior USGS scientist told me was basically impossible in an email and then deleted the entire thing in his response for plausible deniability?
Seen that happen a time or two.
Just because you have a degree and important position does not make you infallible.
So,what is up with this?
What does it mean,in essence.

There are no subduction zones around Antarctica, its all Spreading Ridges.
Figure 7:CDP seismic line 769, which crosses the forearc region south of the triple junction. Here the Antarctic plate is subducting at about 20 mm/yr. A large accretionary wedge is present at this position along the margin, with a width of at least 30 km. Most of this material has probably been accreted to South America since the passage of the triple junction, less that 2 million years ago. This seismic section has been post-stack time migrated by Dr. Barrie Taylor.

I think the real issue however is not the earthquakes, the loss of ice sheets et al, but what is causing them to rapidly melt and break away in the first place.
It has been said elswhere that there is rapidly flowing water under the icesheet itself.. This maybe denote some volcanic, magmatic intrusion from the earths interior into the icesheet.
Or, as has been postulated elsewhere, that the solar system is traveling through a magnatised cloud in space-which it indeed is- and that planetary capacitence has been compromised due to the cloud creating circuits between the planets which usually float in a vacuum. This means that the planets, at the various densities of this cloud, are connected and exchanging energies.
This explains why there is global warming even on the outer planets, the weird weather, increase in seismic activity, and even that "hum" that has been reported the world over.
Again, just a postulation, but a common sense one.edit on 16-1-2012 by EvanB because: (no reason given)edit on 16-1-2012 by EvanB because: (no reason given)
RIVERS and mountains can move given enough time, but they don't normally move half a kilometre every year. Yet that is exactly what is happening to a bizarre group of Antarctic lakes. And the lakes seem to be moving far faster than the ice shelf on which they sit.

. . . The shape of the earth, a mal-formed spheroid, whose center of gravity is becoming increasing displaced by the turbulent shifting of the planet’s mass due to a wave of strong earthquakes that have rattled the planet over the last 7 years. . . .
