"Reporting this week (Thursday 26 April) in the journal Nature, an international team of scientists led by British Antarctic Survey (BAS) has established that warm ocean currents are the dominant cause of recent ice loss from Antarctica. New techniques have been used to differentiate, for the first time, between the two known causes of melting ice shelves — warm ocean currents attacking the underside, and warm air melting from above. This finding brings scientists a step closer to providing reliable projections of future sea-level rise."
In the Swedish version of this article they say it's because of warmer deepwater!

“Of the 54 ice shelves mapped, 20 are being melted by warm ocean currents, most of which are in West Antarctica.”
Note the daily wobble pushes the N Pole away when the Sun is over the Pacific (W Antarctica) thus causing the warmer water in the Pacific to slosh toward Antarctica, the land moving north, the water staying in place, thus the slosh.
“In most places in Antarctica, we can’t explain the ice-shelf thinning through melting of snow at the surface, so it has to be driven by warm ocean currents melting them from below.”
Global Warming theory does not explain what is happening.
“We think that it’s linked to changes in wind patterns. Studies have shown that Antarctic winds have changed because of changes in climate, and that this has affected the strength and direction of ocean currents. As a result warm water is funnelled beneath the floating ice.”
The changed jet stream and increasing blending of the seasons is due to the wobble. The blanket of atmosphere, like the blanket of oceans, tends to stay in place while the Earth itself moves back and forth. This pushes Antarctica UNDER the warmer air, on a daily basis. As in this example from February of this year, when temperature extremes were noted in the continental US and Alaska, supported by weather map examples.If the wobble did this to India, pushing it under warm air, it likewise does this to Antarctica.
ZetaTalk Explanation 2/4/2012: The N Pole is pushed away when it comes over the horizon, when the noon Sun is centered over the Pacific. This regularly puts Alaska under colder air, with less sunlight, and thus the historically low temps there this January, 2012 as the wobble has gotten stronger. But by the time the Sun is positioned over India, the N Pole has swung during the Figure 8 so the globe tilts, and this tilt is visible in the weather maps from Asia. The tilt has forced the globe under the hot air closer to the Equator, warming the land along a discernable tilt demarcation line.
Added by Moderation, is a question on the 4/28 Q&A chat with the Zetas. Applies here. It is NOT just Antarctica!
The Arctic ice is vulnerable because it does not sit on land, and thus washed from below can melt faster than glaciers on land. The Earth wobble pushes water from both the Pacific and Atlantic into the Arctic, speeding this process. The wobble does more than melt ice, it also stirs the atmosphere, so that, as we have long predicted, the seasons worldwide will begin to blend. Cold weather may range further south than formerly, but likewise warm weather will range further north. The melting of the Arctic has occurred quite outside of Global Warming predictions.
What does this mean for scientists and government authorities cautioned to maintain the cover-up over the presence of Planet X? With real data firmly in hand to prove that the Arctic is warming more rapidly than expected, scientists can at least move forward with more realistic forecasts and government agencies can schedule relocation of communities more aggressively. Of course, behind closed doors, the why of the rapid melting is being discussed, in hushed tones. The attendees at the Montreal conference will take the opportunity to discuss what comes NEXT, given the ZetaTalk track record on predictions, which the vast majority follow closely.
