. I need someone to explain to me how setting off explosions in Antartica itself is not what is causing the global seas to rise. How does a scientist come to the conclusion that they need to set off explosions to investigate what is causing glaciers to melt. Am I the one that's insane to think this is insane or is this just normal protocol that I am unaware of. I tell you what, it seems to me that there is a lot of evil happening on the planet that is being passed off as just normal activity when there is nothing at all normal about it and this to me comes pretty close to the top of the list. But please someone ANYONE correct me if I'm wrong because maybe there is some way to set off explosions in Antartica without contributing to global sea risings that I am unaware of. Please educate me on this one because I'm baffled, confused and downright ANGRY.
If you say so, but I remain skeptical. I don't see how exploding the glaciers is a move in the direction of solving the problem. All I know is they're exploding the glaciers and the seas continue to rise. From my perspective, the two events are correlated.

The explosions are produced by very small packets of explosives set off about 6 feet below the surface of the glacier (which is more than 5,000 feet thick) .
They are not causing the glacier to melt, nor are they causing sea levels to rise but they do allow researchers to use seismic instruments to determine what is under the ice. In this case, large areas of liquid water.
The lakes under the glaciers are not caused by the testing.
From my perspective, the two events are correlated.

No they are not learning about global warming, they are just blowing up ice and draining lakes of fresh water, and actually ARE causing the destruction of the glaciers for purposes that have NOTHING to dp with research and everything to do with making money, spreading lies about glaciers, promoting global warming videos....
And should be stopped, they are destroying the environment.
