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.

Another Answer

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.
