Should Antarctica be developed?
No. it should not be developed. It is one of the few places in
the world that has not been developed and should stay that way.
Antarctica is a harsh place. Development per se would be
problematic, given that access to land is impossible for half the
year -- the sea ice freezes, doubling the size of the continent;
nothing grows there, everything must be imported -- it's 30 degrees
F colder in Antarctica that it is in the polar regions of the
Northern Hemisphere; development is simply an impractical idea.
