英国网友评论:中国称不会开采南极但暗示“资源的和平开发” [每日邮报]

China sought to dispel concerns about its ambitions in mineral-rich Antarctica on Monday with an official saying Beijing has no plans to start mining in the vast continent.


China's expanding activities in polar regions is a focal point as Beijing hosts the annual meeting of the Antarctic Treaty for the first time.


Some 400 delegates from 42 countries and 10 international bodies were attending the forum which kicked off Monday and ends June 1.


There are known reserves of oil and coal as well as mineral deposits in Antarctica although detailed knowledge of these mineral deposits is sketchy.




In the last 50 years of scientific research no large deposits of mineralized rocks have been found.


Mining in Antarctica would be very difficult dangerous and expensive as the climate is so harsh the ice is very thick and Antarctica is very remote from major centres of population.


'There is still a gap between the goal of peaceful development of Antarctica's resources and our understanding of Antarctica' Lin Shanqing deputy head of the State Oceanic Administration told reporters on the sidelines of the forum.

Forever chasing infinite growth in a finite world can only lead to disaster. Even the thought of using Antarctica for minerals tells us that we are nearing the end of the world's resources?

China should not be in Antarctic: the original 12 signatories and Explorer could tries only. China will seek to.install.military bases and exploit the natural resources . Establish a marine reserve all round continent and sink.any Japanese whalers.

I would trust a starving ferret more than China but at least they have tried to control their population growth. Unfettered and state subsidised breeding is a far greater threat than Chinese territorial ambitions.

1 - They'll probably claim it's all theirs much like the Spratly and Parcel Islands. 2 - Don't let those locusts anywhere near it.

False news. The "development" of the Antarctic was banned by all signatories (including China) by the Antarctic Treaty of 1959.

Clearly the word in Chinese for "mine" is identical to the word for "peaceful development of resources".....
