5. It's Not that bad...

The dotted line on the BBC map is just showing you where the Tansantartic Mountains split the continent into two: A bit like getting a map of the US and drawing a line through the Rockies. In the image you posted, they're the grey bit just down from the pole (but they do look a bit crack-ish in that one).

Here's a map that shows the area a little better: You can see the tip of S. America & Falkland Islands for scale.

edit: The problem is that PIG holds back the rest of the ice - and if it all goes, it could get "interesting".
