could a sub – crust volcano evaporate the ice at the Antartic

I want to know if it were possible for all the ice to
melt , with little or no immediate detriment to the sea-levels.

    While the majority of ice that has melted at the Antarctic can be attributed to global warming, it is thought that some of the ice that has disappeared is from a sub-crust volcano that erupted 2000 years ago. The eruption was rated severe to cataclysmic according to international ratings. It created a massive hole in the ice sheet and shot a plume of smoke 12km into the air. It is thought that the volcano could still be active today. It also calls into question whether other sub-crust volcanoes have caused ice to melt at the poles that is unrecorded.
