The 40,000 mile mountain range you've probably never heard of

This story appeared in the New York Times recently (it won't let me view it because of my browser, but there are other sources, since it's been known for some time.  I checked another source. Gilman, Larry; Lerner, K. Lee. "Mid-Ocean Ridges." Water:Science and Issues. 2003. 30 Jan. 2016 <>.  Truly fascinating.  You could get lost just imagining it.

 Do you suppose all this might possibly affect the climate with earthquakes and upheavals, gases and mineral deposits with the ocean bottom moving as much as 6" a year? Is it Bush's fault, or the GOP? Obscure information, yes, as NYT reports, but known for some time.
