On Sunday, CBS claimed that Antarctica is melting. In fact, once small portion of the Antarctic peninsula is warming and may be losing snow, while the rest of Antarctica has not been warming and in fact has been gaining ice cover. The show visits an island off the Antarctic Peninsula which has about as much weather relevance and predictive power to the rest of Antarctica as Key West has to the rest of the United States. Absolutely absurd.

Would this be the same Antarctica with volcanoes under the ice?
I think I caught part of the show you mention - it was offensively idiotic.
