The new measurements could help to improve climate models used for predicting future climate, as well as help scientists to better understand Antarctica’s past.
The findings were published the week of April 21 in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
The average annual South Pacific sea temperature near Antarctica is about 32 degrees Fahrenheit (0 degrees Celsius), a far cry from the milder climate of ancient times.
“By measuring past temperatures in different parts of Antarctica, this study gives us a clearer perspective of just how warm Antarctica was when the Earth’s atmosphere contained much more CO2 than it does today,” researchers told Science Daily.The continent remained warm even after the extinction of the dinosaurs, an era known as the Eocene (40-50 million years ago).
And remarkably, forests were still there as early as 12 million years ago. It’s hard to imagine, but Antarctica was ice-free and full of lush forests.
In 1938, the Third Reich claimed New Swabia in Antarctica. The vessel called “Schwabenland” just before the outbreak of WWII, headed into western Antarctica.
This was done under the auspices of “securing Germany’s whaling industry.”
This seemed feasible, given the fact that much could be manufactured from whales including nitroglycerin, margarine, and mechanical lubricants.
It was, however, their goal to build a massive subterranean base there for operations named “base 211″, but the war broke out and not much else information has been released on the subject.
His contribution to the mystery of post-war Antarctic activity came in a statement he made in 1943 when he declared that the German submarine fleet had rebuilt “in another part of the world a Shangri-La land – an impregnable fortress.”
Could he have been referring to the alleged base in Antarctica? Certainly there are records of continued German naval activity in the area after the war had apparently ended.
A book published in 1978, called Secret Nazi Polar Expeditions, relates how the Germans had taken a ship with a small airplane on it that they launched from their ship after reaching the ice near Antarctica.
But the book didn’t say anything about what it supposedly found or what the Nazi party elite believed was an entrance to the inner (hollow) earth.
An interesting document has recently surfaced obtained by a Joe Watson of Talkeetna, Alaska.
Mr. Watson claims it is a copy of a letter written on 2 March 1985 in the German language from a German submarine crewman who was on board. In it is given certain coordinates for their mission, which apparently was to travel to the center of the earth.
Their submarine was called U-209 under Captain Heinrich Brodda. The image below is a copy of the original hand-written letter from Karl Unger, crew member of the German U-209, as well as an English translation (click to enlarge).
In it Karl confirmed that the earth was indeed hollow and that they had successfully reached the inner inhabited earth in the German U-209 submarine after World War II had destroyed Germany.
When one does a search at the German archive website looking for information on the missing U-209 German submarine, it shows that the submarine was indeed reported missing. On July 5, 1943 was it’s last reported position between Greenland and Iceland at coordinates 52°00’N-38°00’W. The report said the Commander of the submarine was Heinrich Brodda.
In addition, documents obtained by the soviets at the close of WW2 recently surfaced which shows a 1944 map from the Third Reich detailing not only the direct passageway used by German U-boats to access this subterranean domain, but also a complete map of both hemispheres of the inner realm of Agharta, the mythical name of the inhabited subterranean world (click image to enlarge).
The intriguing detail here is that there are underwater passageways that run nearly the entire length of the continent and seem to converge at the exact location identified as the opening into the deep inner or subterranean earth.
Below is a translation of the Top Secret instructions and specific detailed directions left for the Nazi U-boat Captains to follow in order to reach the inner-world kingdom of Agartha (click to enlarge).
What was he looking for with such a substantial military force – in, of all places, Antarctica? There are all kinds of strong indications now suggesting that he was sent to smoke out Hitler’s last stronghold there.
In his unofficial comments to the South American press, Byrd stated that he was attacked by “enemy aircraft” that“could fly from pole to pole at incredible speed”.
So the story of the Third Reich’s advanced technology programs does not end with the collapse of the Third Reich itself.
Would it not have been painfully embarrassing to admit to the American/world public that…”… here we were, having clubbed the Germans to a pulp in massive bombing raids, monkeying around with that outdated, old-fashioned, glorified fire cracker rocketry the departing Hitler regime left behind, along with Wernher von Braun – while a still-undefeated bunch of high-tech Nazis are hot-rodding it around the globe and maybe even through the universe, snugly ensconced in their never-captured, Antarctic based UFOs?”
