Yes, I saw that episode of House too! Another "pants wetter"! As I recall was the story line not a rip-off of a female medic who overwintered at the pole and diagnosed herself with breast cancer? I can't comment on their medical advisors but I sure as hell knew there were no wind generators at Amundsen-Scott. There was one at Stonington Island a few generations ago (just before I was there in the early 1970s). It was last seen heading towards Neny Island in a 100+ knot wind!
I agree about the Poles & Czechs. I've worked in both countries and had a great time.
When I was down south we used to speculate where we would head in the event of a major nuclear exchange. The consensus was that Horseshoe Island base in the Marguerite Bay 'fjord' area would be a decent location. It was a great wee base with all its generator equipment intact and in those days it still had about 5-6 years of food and fuel stocks. Also, there was plenty of indiginous marine wildlife to supplement the available food stocks on base. We never did quite resolve the problem of how the hell we would get there from Western Europe but it was an intriguing intellectual exercise in speculation and scenario planning!
