Eventually the ice will all melt and the bottles will be accessible again.

Lemme get this straight: This company is probably gonna spend a bazillion dollars on this expedition, and they aren't allowed to take all the bottles because of "conservation guidelines?"

Good grief! I say take all the bottles and auction them off to the highest bidder. Throw a few bucks the way of some greenie-weenie-save-the-earth charity and call it a day!

Because of an international treaty that the countries signed. They'd be in breach of the treaty if they violated it.

Where is green peace, save the planet, save the antartic and other such groups. Now we have explorers drilling the Antartcia for bottles of alcohol all at a time when we are constantly told by 'experts' that the ice in the area is fast disappearing
