On July, 1995, ZetaTalk stated that a Hearlding signs would be the oceans of the world heating from the bottom up, from the core of the Earth, in response to the approaching of the Planet X, and repeated this warning on Oct 15, 2002. By Mar 27, 2002, polar research scientists had conceded that warming from beneath the ice caps was the primary cause of disintegration. On Sep 14, 2006, NASA satellites had recorded drastic and startling changes in the ice.
- The Oceans are Warmer because the core of the Earth has heated up, and it does so in response to its brother coming closer. This will continue, and increase.

- These and heating of the Earth from the core, causing melting polar ice and glaciers, is not new but an existing trend.

- Arctic Ice Melting from Below
BBC News Online, Mar 27, 2002
- Scientists believe they have identified a mechanism which can explain the thinning of the Arctic sea ice. They say the thinning, which in summer reaches more than 40% in some areas, has two causes. Rising air temperatures, possibly the consequence of global warming, are melting the ice from above. And warmer water is also rising from the depths to attack the ice from below. Professor Peter Wadhams, of the Scott Polar Research Institute in Cambridge, UK, said in 2000 that he had established the degree of thinning using measurements from submarines in 1976 and 1996. He said these showed that in that time a large area of the sea ice, stretching from the North Pole to the Fram Strait between Svalbard and Greenland, had thinned by 43% during the Arctic summer. US data from the other side of the Arctic, between the Pole and the Bering Strait, found a similar thinning over the same period.
The reported melting has been questioned by some scientists who believe the ice is still there, concentrated in areas where the submarines have not looked for it. But Professor Wadhams says the thinning he has detected, from 16ft (4.8m) 20 years ago to 9ft (2.7m) today, is scientifically explicable. He told BBC News Online: "People say global warming can't be raising air temperatures enough to melt the ice, because the Arctic winter temperature is around -30C anyway, and a one-degree warming would be irrelevant. But it's the summer temperatures that matter. Arctic summers are getting longer, so there is longer for the warmer air to melt the snow and affect the ice beneath. The other mechanism is the warming of one or two degrees in the water under the ice - enough to increase the bottom melting quite considerably. There is a cold water layer immediately beneath the ice. But that's changing its stability and salinity, because of changes in the distribution of Siberian river water in the Arctic. Over a large area that cold water is becoming more saline and denser, which means it's letting more heat rise through it."
- Drastic' shrinkage in Arctic ice
Sep 14, 2006
- A Nasa satellite has documented startling changes in Arctic sea ice cover between 2004 and 2005. The extent of perennial ice - thick ice which remains all year round - declined by 14%, losing an area the size of Pakistan or Turkey. The last few decades have seen summer ice shrink by about 0.7% per year. The drastic shrinkage may relate partly to unusual wind patterns found in 2005, though rising temperatures in the Arctic could also be a factor. The research is reported in the journal Geophysical Research Letters. The change we see between 2004 and 2005 is enormous. The Arctic is warming about twice as fast as the global average; and recent studies have shown that the area of the Arctic covered by ice each summer, and the ice thickness, have been shrinking. If we average over the long term we find a reduction of between 6.4% and 7.8% per decade. What we have here is 14% in one year - 18 times the previous rate.
