Giant cavity found eating away at Antarctic glacier from underneath

For sure, Ethiopians, Somalis, and Sudanese will agree 100%. And no one from Syria has ever left their country due to drought; on the contrary, there's plenty of plant life and agriculture there! Also that warmer climate is doing GREAT things in the hurricane spawning part of the Atlantic.

I'm not entirely certain how your religious beliefs manage the insane levels of cognitive dissonance that allows you to ignore real human suffering caused by real human causes.
You obviously hold your AGW beliefs with religious fervor. Can't see why you're so uncertain, tbh.

Would someone mind explaining this to me

A map showing changes in topography at Thwaites Glacier, between 2011 and 2017. Red areas indicate the highest rate of sinking, with the section in the middle representing the newly-found giant cavity, and the bottom-left corner showing extensive calving

The melting is caused by volcanic activity:

It has absolutely nothing to do with CO2.
That doesn't matter to anyone sensible. From your quoted article,

West Antarctica is also hemorrhaging ice due to climate change, and recent studies have suggested there is no way to reverse the retreat of West Antarctic glaciers.
Who knew that there could be more than one factor in a complex subject like climatology?

One day there's more ice, the next there's less. Less ice is due to global warming, but so is more ice. So let's pretend that we even have such good handle on what's actually going on (despite the acknowledgement that we don't really) to the extent that we can then derive a solid link to CO2.
Antarctic land ice and Antarctic sea ice are not the same thing...
