  • What is the greatest threat facing Antarctica?

    I gave a slide show a couple of days ago to a group of 14/15 year olds about to start on coursework about Antarctica. Q & A session at the end and a teacher asked me:
    What is the greatest threat facing Antarctica?
    Err... well... fluster, fluster... (I should have seen it coming) eventually I came out with
    "To be ignored - for people to be ignorant of it, if you don't know about something, you don't care about it".

    I was quite pleased with that, it may become some kind of "Mission statement" for this site. Whaddya reckon? Comments?

    Of course I can't claim originality, the idea came from Lars-Eric Lindblad (leader of the first commercial Antarctica cruise in 1966). "You can't protect what you don't know."

    Valid point. I know very little about Antarctica. But I'm getting better.

      Well seeing's how I don't know everything about Antarctica too, I won't sound like too much of an idiot when I ask this question.....How much of Antarctica is still unexplored (if there are parts unexplored)??
