Best Answer

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.
