Traveling the Antarctic continent with producer David Baron, we confront the future of the world's last true wilderness-- a white ice landscape already littered by the residue of scientific research projects and stained by fuel oil from ships which has poisoned fragile ecosystems. Antarctica's future depends on an international resolution of issues: How to keep it pristine and available to all nations? How will environmental controls be put in place, much lessen forced? Should hotel construction be allowed? Mining? If no one owns it, if Antarctica belongs to everyone, who is responsible? How these issues are resolved in an international agreement may portend the future direction of global environmental policies.
