    This is an interesting article, but it continues to present theory. Guess it will be up to non-scientists like us to figure this one out.

    On his Web site iceagenow.com, Robert W. Felix provides the following information about ocean warming as a result of hydrothermic activity under the seas.

    "A new type of volcano may be heating up the floor of the western Pacific Ocean," says an article posted on National Geographic News and on Yahoo. "Scientists suspect the new volcanoes occur at cracks in tectonic plates caused by stress as the plates slide past each other. A group of small volcanoes called petit spot volcanoes has been discovered far from the tectonic-plate boundaries (like mid-oceanic ridges) that often spawn volcanoes, earthquakes, and other geologic activity.

    The results of climate change are tricky to predict... we might have extremes of both hot and cold, one or the other, lots going on, chain reactions, who knows... though I guess we're pretty determined to find out.
