The pole is shifting which means Antarctica will open up in the future (refer to our last blog post); what used to be the continent for the scientific preserve only for scientific purposes is changing rapidly.
Antarctica coveres 10% of earth. Antarctica maybe one of the few places in the world where mutual international cooperation has lead to peaceful dispute resolution and uninhibited scientific research. Conservation isn’t just about the protection of animals and nature but is also about sharing of information.
The general rule on land ownership:
“Each nation owns all natural resources of any water or land under that water so long as it is 200nm of their shores or up to 300nm of their continental shelf.”
The treaty was an agreement upon the following;
- No military activities
- Or nuclear testing
- And free sharing of any scientific discoveries
- In addition there’s an environmental moratorium on mining and drilling until 2048.
Antarctica is the coldest place on Earth. The temperature in the winter is cold enough to freeze water all the time. The temperature in the middle of Antarctica is much colder than the temperature on the coasts.
Antarctica has two seasons: summer and winter. Earth is tilted in space. During summer, Antarctica is on the side of Earth tilted toward the sun. It is always sunny. In winter, Antarctica is on the side of Earth tilted away from the sun. Then, the continent is always dark.
Antarctica is a desert. It does not rain or snow a lot there. When it snows, the snow does not melt and builds up over many years to make large, thick sheets of ice, called ice sheets. Antarctica is made up of lots of ice in the form of glaciers, ice shelves and icebergs.
Antarctica has no trees or bushes. The only plants that can live in a place that cold are moss and algae.
NASA uses satellites to study Antarctica. NASA wants to know how Antarctica is changing. Scientists want to know what the changes in Earth’s climate are doing to Antarctica’s ice sheets. They also want to know what changes in Antarctica’s ice might do to Earth’s climate.
Aside of being a place of penguins, seals, whales and ice, Antarctica has few natural resources to speak of. That along with its inhospitable climate have ensured its status as the only continent on earth without a permanent human population. But if there’s one thing we know about people, it’s that they love sticking flags in unclaimed territories. So which nation has dibs on the seventh continent?
Antarctica is a good place to find meteorites, or rocks that fall from space to Earth. Scientists find more meteorites in Antarctica than any other place in the world. Meteorites are easier to see on the white ice. Also, meteorites that fall to Antarctica are protected by the ice for a long time.
While no one country “owns” Antarctica, a total of 52 nations do have joint international control over the region. The world’s struggle for a piece of the frozen pie began with the increase in Antarctic expeditions at the start of the 20th century. In 1908, England made the first attempt by laying claim to a significant portion of the mainland and several surrounding islands. In response, several other nations scrambled to secure territories while there was still land left to claim. Those nations included Chile, Argentina, Australia, France, Norway, New Zealand and even Nazi Germany.
When the Antarctic Treaty was signed in 1959, all previous claims became null and void. Instead of dividing up the land between world powers, the treaty granted mutual sovereignty to the 12 nations that signed it. Since then, a few dozen more countries have signed on, and, by some miracle, a continent that makes up 10 percent of the earth’s land is still being used as a shared scientific preserve today.
Three important aspects that we will discuss in the near future about Antartica is that
1. it was the old Atlantis – the lost ancient civilization.
2.The spear of victory (Destiny) and
3. The holy grail
According to Benjamin Fulford recent blog update:
“Something is happening around Antarctica these days that is shrouded in secrecy but is also attracting a lot of heavy hitters. The visit to Antarctica by Patriarch Kirill, the head of the Russian Orthodox Church, in February was the first sign of something unusual happening. Now this week US Presidential spokesperson Barack Obama will be visiting the Nazi South American headquarters in Bariloche, in Southern Argentina.
Just before the Obama visit, it was revealed that China has built a giant space exploration base in Southern Argentina. Following this revelation, the Argentine government reported they sank a “Chinese fishing boat,” near a restricted area off the coast of Southern Argentina. Pentagon sources say the boat was probably a Chinese spy vessel since a normal fishing vessel would have responded to Argentine warnings.
Furthermore, the heavy handed attempt Khazarian mafia attempt to overthrow the government of Brazil has now failed, depriving the Khazarian mafia of Brazil as a place to flee now that the American people are waking up to the crimes that have been committed against them, CIA sources in South America say.
Now CIA sources in Asia are saying their connections “who are above the government,” are all “flying South,” this week and hinted strongly that “South” referred to Antarctica. This is all very interesting because years ago Paul Laine, a source in Pentagon military intelligence, told this writer the then state of the art UK guided missile destroyer HMS Sheffield had been captured by Nazis operating out of an undersea base in the region. The Sheffield was supposedly sunk in 1982 during the Falklands war between Argentina and the UK by an Exocet missile.
This increase in highly secret activity in the Southern Hemisphere near Antarctica is somehow connected to ongoing negotiations over a gold mine in Papua, New Guinea, that Laine also indicated was the location of a Nazi secret base…….”
