Fortunately there are no Taliban in the Antarctic yet. It is too cold to be running around dressed in 700 AD outfits. But these pictures show an amazing side of nature. It has been so cold there in recent years that water freezes the moment it hits the atmosphere. The water froze the instant the waves broke through the ice. That's what it is like in Antarctica where it is the coldest weather in decades. Water freezes the instant it comes in contact with the air. The temperature of the water is already some degrees below freezing. And remember this is salt water too. So much for global warming.
