    Due to Global Warming polar ice caps are melting and Antarctica might have patches, lots of air pollution, natural calamites and destruction.

    Only about 0.4% of the surface of Antarctica is free of snow and ice. The tops of mountain chains stick up through the ice – the highest is Mount Vinson, 4900 m above sea level.

    There are a few "oasis" spots as well that are free of ice.

    Edit: Antarctica is huge.

    There are ice-free patches, called "Antarctic oases." That's kind of ironic since an "oasis" is generally thought of as a non-desert area where there's water in middle of a desert, while an "oasis" in Antarctica is generally a desert area with no water, not even frozen water.

    There are some ice-free patches on a few coastal areas. There is even some grass there which is native to Antarctica.
