The Ice mass was large enough and the balance unstable enough from a million years of growth that the crust simply moved in order to redress the balance situation. This led to the obvious conclusion that doing this properly would have the benefit of liberating the vast majority of the Earth's surface for terraforming generally which has been our mission for the past 10,000 years. This was accomplished deliberately 12900 BP. Please note deliberately. The probability of what occurred happening accidentally is unimaginably low.
