As I’ve reported many times and there are thousands upon thousands of seabed volcanoes that are getting more and more active.

Minus 33°C at Summit, Greenland. In July!
How much ice do you think is melting at -33°C?
4 July 2017 – It is the coldest July temperature ever recorded in the Northern Hemisphere, says Tony Heller.
The new record of -33C ( 27.4°F) smashes the old record of -30.7°C (-23.26°F).

Greenland’s ice sheet kicked off 2017 gaining about eight gigatons of snow and ice, which is well above what’s usually added to the ice sheet Jan. 1 for the last 24 years, according to Danish meteorologists.
In fact, Greenland’s ice sheet has been gaining ice and snow at a rate not seen in years based on Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI) data. DMI reports the Greenland ice sheet’s “mass surface budget” has been growing significantly since October.
Greenland’s “surface mass budget” for winter 2016-2017 is already more than two standard deviations higher than the northern ice sheet’s mean snow and ice accumulation over the last 24 years. DMI data shows the ice sheet added 8 gigatons of ice and snow Jan. 1, well above the standard deviation for that day.
