TRUTH !!
Ninety percent of the world's ice covers Antarctica .
This ice also represents seventy percent of all the fresh water in the world.

As strange as it sounds, however, Antarctica is essentially a desert;
The average yearly total precipitation is about two inches.

Although covered with ice (all but 0.4% of it, ice.), Antarctica is the driest place on the planet, with an absolute humidity lower than the Gobi desert.
