Big melt seen in Antarctic past, and maybe future

WASHINGTON (AP) -- New information on Antarctica's regularly melting distant past is giving scientists a glimpse into what may be a flooded future as the planet warms up. Full story:

* LiveScience: Antarctic Meltdown Would Flood Washington, D.C.:
* National Geographic: Dark Matter Proof Found Over Antarctica? (Planet X?):
High-energy electrons captured over Antarctica could reveal the presence of a nearby but MYSTERIOUS ASTROPHYSICAL OBJECT that's bombarding Earth with cosmic rays, researchers say:
* LiveScience: Antarctic Ice Causes Glacial 'Earthquakes' (Planet X):
Scientists have discovered their first icequake, if you will — a movement of a huge stream of ice in Antarctica that creates seismic waves, just like an earthquake, and can be felt hundreds of miles away... These ice-driven seismic waves had the force of a magnitude 7 earthquake:
* 7,200 years ago, during the cataclysm known as “Noah’s flood“, “sudden changes in temperature, violent storms and water avalanches from Antarctica broke off from their ‘ice prison’ Dr. John T. Hollin at Maine University (U.S.A.) considers that large pieces periodically came out of the Antarctic ice field creating a huge tide” (Zecharia Sitchin, The Twelfth Planet).
* 3,600 years ago, during the Jews’ Exodus from Egypt in the middle of the second millennium B.C., the Earth suffered big cataclysms. “A celestial body that recently entered our solar system – a new comet – came very close to Earth [causing – A/N] the eventual disappearance of the glacier layer“ (Immanuel Velikovsky, “Worlds in Collision“):
* 7200 years ago: "Sudden changes in temperature must have created violent storms accompanied by rain torrents. Moving faster than the waters, the storms, the clouds and the darkened sky announced the avalanche of the waters … we belive that the various texts and facts that have been discovered till now suggest … such a slip into the Antarctic waters of billions of tones of water. This event provoked a huge flooding. From the Antarctic waters, it rapidly spread to the Indian, Atlantic and Pacific oceans. These phenomena are described in the ancient texts … sooner or later, a portion, whether a small one or a large one, of the ice field slips into the Planetary Ocean … Both the Mesopotamian text and the Bible describe how shaken the Earth was at the arrival of the celestial Lord... the climate changes and the instability of the polar calotte from Antarctica... that the next ( crossing ) of their planet… would eventually attract the catastrophe ?" (Z. Sitchin, The Twelfth Planet):
