and the ozone hole over arntarctica has been created by US and British nuclear testing - just think for a second, most of the world industry is in the Northern Hemisphere, so how the hell could all that pollution make it to the south pole to cause such an effect, it'd be more so in the north pole wouldnt you think?
I personally beleive that Antarctica, as scientist have previously stated was once a lush foresh covered continent
Quite possibly, the legend of atlantis could be one of antarctica, where the water came in and froze. How do we know that the Atlantaneans weren't trying to mess with the weather and it backfiered at them in a big way?

It's probably completely unrelated to what Pontifex found.

Just thought I'd throw in the "Piri Reis Map" mystery, try googling it there's no shortage of information on it. But basicaly it indicates that Antartica was ice free 10,000 years ago.
Here's one link
In 1929, a group of historians found an amazing map drawn on a gazelle skin.
Research showed that it was a genuine document drawn in 1513 by Piri Reis, a famous admiral of the Turkish fleet in the sixteenth century. (...)
The most puzzling however is not so much how Piri Reis managed to draw such an accurate map of the Antarctic region 300 years before it was discovered, but that the map shows the coastline under the ice. Geological evidence confirms that the latest date Queen Maud Land could have been charted in an ice-free state is 4000 BC.

I read somewhere bout 2 years agi that scientists saw a natural vortex swirling in the sky above one of their bases so they tied some sort of recording device to a weather baloon and sent it up, attached to a rope on the ground. The baloon disappeared in the vortex and they then pulled it back down. What they found was in only a number of minutes, many hours had passed on the recording device. I havn't been able to find further reference of this so I hope someone else can help me out.
According to the article, some American and British scientists working in Antarctica on January 27, 1995, noticed a spinning gray fog in the sky over the pole. U. S. physicist Mariann McLein said at first they believed it to be some kind of sandstorm. But after a while they noticed that the fog did not change its form and did not move so they decided to investigate.
They sent up a weather balloon, at the end of a rope, with some equipment attached. To their surprise the balloon immediately disappeared after entering the fog, although the rope hung there, as if still attached. After a few minutes the team pulled on the rope and the balloon reappeared. When they brought it back to the ground they were surprised to find that a chronometer on the balloon displayed the date as January 27, 1965, exactly 30 years earlier.
Nov 9, 2006: The Eye of the Storm - A hurricane-like whirlpool with a well-developed eye ringed by towering clouds, a phenomenon never before seen on another planet, has been sighted by multiple Cassini instruments at Saturn's south pole. (...) The unprocessed image shows an oblique view toward the pole, and was reprojected to show the planet from a perspective directly over the south pole.
BURIED UNDER TWO MILES OF ICE. In Antarctica, a glacial earthquake swallows up a team of scientists...and exposes a mysterious monument older than the Earth itself. In Peru, archaeologist Dr. Conrad Yeats is apprehended by U.S. Special Forces...to unlock the final key to the origins of the human race. In Rome, the pope summons environmental activist Dr. Serena Serghetti to the Vatican...and reveals a terrifying vision of apocalyptic disaster. In space, a weather satellite reveals four massive storms forming around the South Pole...and three U.S. spy satellites disappear from orbit. These are the end times, when the legends of a lost civilization and the prophecies of the world's great religions lead a man and a woman to a shattering discovery that will change the fate of humankind. This is the ultimate voyage, a journey to the center of time, as awe-inspiring as the dawn of man--and as inevitable as doomsday. This is RAISING ATLANTIS....
