Well historically we’ve had an adverse impact on every new area we moved into. But that was prior to solar panels, wind turbines, nuclear power, electric vehicles and other modern clean technologies. The push to colonize Antarctica will likely occur at a point where these technologies have become cheap and ubiquitous, at least compared to today, and they will make it possible to settle Antarctica with minimal environmental impact.
