Scientists think that Antarctica's continental shelves hold the most promise. In 1973 the U.S. drilling ship Glamor Challenger found quantities of ethane and methane gases, provoking speculation that the southern polar seas contain vast oil fields.

The National Geographic magazine, decades ago, featured several articles on Antarctica as the last wilderness and under threat from nations that want to exploit its natural resources.
I guess nothing's changed. We may be more aware of our impact on the environment, but most of us, especially our "worthy" elected representatives and greedy corporates haven't gotten the message.
