It’s the coldest place on earth, a continent virtually uninhabited and covered almost entirely by ice. The temperatures are unforgiving, threatening dangerous frostbite. But while conditions in Antartica have always been extreme, it’s showing the visible effects of damage to the environment by humans. As the earth warms, the ice in the region is rapidly melting, causing dramatic changes on the continent. Alarmingly, the impacts of climate change at the Earth’s southern tip are felt around the world. Not for nothing do the experts say: what happens in Antartica, doesn’t stay in Antartica. Carte Blanche set off on an expedition to wildest Antarctica, along with some young South Africans brimming with ideas about helping save our planet.
