Is the mystery south polar heating electrical?

A new scientific paper attempts to explain a mystery at our planet’s South Pole. A team of investigators from the British Antarctic Survey discovered a localized area where the Antarctic Ice sheet is melting “unexpectedly quickly.” Using radar, they found that some of the ice in a three kilometer thick layer appears to be missing. They have proposed that the heat source causing the melting is “unusually radioactive rocks,” combined with unusually hot water from deep underground.

Professor Donald E. Scott explores if the cause of the mysterious ice melting is in fact an incoming Birkeland current at the South Pole.
