A massive lake of molten carbon the size of Mexico is discovered under the US, and it could cause climate CHAOS

  • Situated under western US, 217 miles (350km) beneath the Earth’s surface
  • Scientists used world’s largest array of seismic sensors to map area 
  • Melting carbon covers an area of 700,000 sq miles (1.8 million sq km)
  • Upper mantle could contain up to 100 trillion metric tonnes of melted carbon 
  • Its discovery challenges what researchers have assumed about how much carbon is trapped inside the planet
