They complained the sea was really rough in between South America and Antarctica but that it was beautiful when they were there in Antarctica.


I got a better price but other than that it sounds very similar.

Oh, and as far as I know there were no psychics and no cult on my trip.

There were a bunch of birders.....are they a cult?

Cheers!

This group I was with for a time was seeking the 4th Reich. That Hitler had commissioned a large underground base in the Antarctic and that's where the last Nazis were. They were going to mentally scan it to see what beings were there. Apparently the 4th Reich was in league with aliens from the Kuiper's Belt, who were working to overthrow the Illuminati and take over the planet for themselves.

About a quarter of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet has become unstable, with thinning up to 134 m occurring in some places.

Antarctica used to be seen as a unique, isolated place and some thought it might not be affected too much by global warming, but now huge areas of the continent are showing the effects of warming climate.

Glacial melting in Antarctica may become irreversible

Thwaites glacier is likely to thaw and trigger 50cm sea level rise, US study suggests


...Other Antarctic glaciers were likely to be similarly unstable.

... the ice sheet could be lost in the space of 150 years, even if temperatures stopped rising...
