REVEALED: Antarctica is WARM and this mind-blowing evidence PROVES it !!!

ANTARCTICA has been a source of fascination for generations – but this mind-blowing footage could change our perception of the barren land for good.

What if the vast, virtually uninhabited continent wasn’t just snow and ice?

An incredible clip proves parts of the so-called coldest region on Earth are WARM.

The Bunger Hills range in Antarctica is a little-known oasis in an unforgiving, sub-zero landscape.

Named after Commander David E Bunger, the man who led a team of US Navy explorers to the breathtaking discovery in 1949, the region boasts “melt ponds” and unfrozen lakes.

And the reasoning behind the phenomenon still stumps scientists today.

Bunger’s discovery was part of Operation Highjump – a navy task force established to train personnel in adverse conditions, finding possible base sites, and carry out climate research.

The now little-known film The Secret Land – released in 1948 – documented the exploration and captured the dramatic moment Bunger and his team found Antarctica’s most unlikely secret.

The crew were onboard a small aircraft when Bunger Hills suddenly appeared.

Narrator Commander Robert Montgomery excitedly describes the moment, telling the viewer: “Rugged mountain ranges as far as the eye can see.

“Bunger leans forward in amazement. His eyes have caught a sudden and unbelievable change in scenery.

“The universe so white has turned a chocolate brown, dotted with blue.

“A cameraman goes into action. Three hundreds square miles of land without snow. Land that might be in New Mexico or Arizona.

“These pictures alone will prove Bunger has discovered a warm oasis in the shadow of the pole.

“It is for such supreme moments as this that men brave the hardships of exploration. The astounding un-dreamed of fact is they are over a chain of warm water lakes whose shores – except for patches – are free of ice and snow.”

Coal and “minerals of the utmost importance to civilisation” were discovered in the area, according to the film, while the water temperature of a five-mile long fresh water lake was recorded at 38F (3C).

The groundbreaking documentary was so impressive seven decades ago that it received the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature.

INCREDIBLE: The area boasts minerals of the “utmost importance to civilisation” Conspiracy theorists have long claimed Antarctica is hiding secrets hidden by the powers that be.

 

A theory emerged last year suggesting a massive civilisation exists beneath a mile of ice.

One vlogger was stunned after spotting what appeared to be a giant staircase-like structure on the continent.

Another conspiracy theory surrounds belief a Nazi UFO base is hidden beneath a huge ice shelf in Antarctica.
