What role does oil in the ground play in global warming

I heard that the ice in Greenland ismelting from the bottom up. Is it possible that we are drainign the earths radiator of it’s coolant and allowing the heat from the earth’s core to add to the problem created by fossil fuels.

    No, the internal heat of the earth is not related to oil. There is not likely to be any oil beneath Greenland’s ice sheet (possible small exceptions on the margins) because the rocks are not the kind that can generate or hold oil.

    The bottom-up melting in Greenland is in places where the glaciers are over water. Warming ocean water is doing the melting.
