Another chance failed to protect the Antarctic Ocean

It seems that currently both poles are on news. First, the 30 Greenpeace activists taken by Russian forces when they were protesting on Shell oil drilling. Now the focus has changed to the South Pole. Last week, 25 bodies (24 countries + EU) have met in Hubart (Australia) to discuss the future of the Antarctica and several possible Marine Protected Areas (MPA). As always, there are two opposite positions that threaten a possible agreement. Let's see who they are and what finally happened.
