Antarctica 2.0 - 2

From Madhouse to Hothouse
In this series we take a look at why Antarctica is not what you have been taught (The World According To Measurements).

In the first post we discussed a discovery that was available for years and years, but was not investigated or researched (Antarctica 2.0).

In today's post we look at another discovery there, a crater in East Antarctica, that for months after its discovery was thought to have been made by a meteorite.

Now, upon closer research, we find that it is a repeat of what takes place in Greenland even to the point of also having a moulin (Crater In Antarctica).

Greenland has been melting for far longer than generally suspected, and so has Antarctica, which, as the video presentation below, by Professor Rignot, shows is problematic for current civilization.

Mainly because it is a national security threat:
"A group of retired senior military officers is urging U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Defense Secretary James Mattis to remain firm in their support for combating global warming as White House officials consider exiting the Paris climate accord.

The 17 veterans argue that climate change poses a critical national security risk and say the U.S. must remain engaged in the international effort to fight it, according to letters sent Monday to Tillerson and Mattis. Among the signatories are three four-star veterans, including former Commander of the U.S. Pacific Command Admiral Sam J. Locklear.

The ex-officers are the latest to call for the U.S. to uphold its environmental commitments as President Donald Trump’s senior advisers were preparing to meet Tuesday to debate whether to exit the Paris accord. Tillerson and Mattis are among those pushing the president to stick with the agreement, brokered in 2015 by almost 200 nations."
(Ex-Military Brass Back Tillerson, Mattis in Climate Fight). Even though the military is aware, politicians in control are not aware, so, there is nothing the military can do about it (Why The Military Can't Defend Against The Invasion).

That is, they can't do anything beyond the standard-fare government reaction (New Climate Catastrophe Policy: Triage, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12).
