 - There is something mysterious and hot lurking beneath the surface of the Antarctic ice.

Now Nasa says that it might have found the source of that strange heating – a “mantle plume” – or upwelling of abnormally hot rock, that lies deep beneath the surface.

The heat is causing the surface of the ice to melt and crack, resulting in rivers and other disruption to Antarctica.

Around 30 years ago, a scientist at the University of Colorado Denver said that there might be a mantle plume under a region of the continent known as Marie Byrd Land. That hypothesis helped explain some strange features seen on the ice, like volcanic activity and a dome.

Mantle plumes are narrow streams through which hot rock rises up from the Earth’s mantle, and then spreads out under the crust. Because the material itself is hot and buoyant, it makes the crust bulge upwards.

 - On the day that you read this article, 200 species of life on Earth (plants, birds, animals, fish, amphibians, insects, reptiles) will cease to exist. Tomorrow, another 200 species will vanish forever.

The human onslaught to destroy life on Earth is unprecedented in Earth’s history. Planet Earth is now experiencing its sixth mass extinction event and Homo sapiens sapiens is the cause. Moreover, this mass extinction event is accelerating and is so comprehensive in its impact that the piecemeal measures being taken by the United Nations, international agencies and governments constitute a tokenism that is breathtaking in the extreme.

dn24602-1_1200 - A new island has appeared in the Pacific. A submarine eruption just off Nishino-Shima Island Japan has erupted for the first time in 40 years. The Japanese Navy noticed the explosions as boiling lava met sea water giving rise to plumes of steam and ash.

Almost 7,000 miles away in Mexico, the Colima volcano blew its top after a period of relative calm. A steam and ash cloud rose two miles into the sky and the grumbling of the mountain could be heard in towns a few miles away.

Sydney fires

 - The Australian Defence Force is investigating claims that explosives used in a military training exercise could have started the bush fires that have destroyed swathes of New South Wales. 

The exercise took place at a military base near the town of Lithgow in the Blue Mountain region last Wednesday. On the same day a bush fire, which is still burning, broke out on ­defence land.

Yesterday, the ADF issued a statement about the fire, currently burning between Lithgow and Bilpin, around 50 miles north-west of Sydney, which is reported to have scorched its way through 74,000 acres, destroying hundreds of properties.
