Why do we even let Northern Hemisphere countries into Antarctica? They can stick to their own Hemisphere as far as I'm concerned.

And the real issue is the melting of the Permafrost (and subsequent release of methane). Once that Genie is out of the bottle it's not going back.

Have a read up on the Antarctic Treaty System - you will then see why. https://www.ats.aq/e/antarctictreaty.html

Yes, the Siberian and Canadian permafrosts melting are a significant issue.
