"Wait...What?!?" Moment of the Day, 29 Jan

From Yahoo! News , article entitled "First Antarctic marine census launched":

U.S., New Zealand, and Italian marine scientists began a two-month voyage to Antarctica's northern coast Tuesday as part of the first-ever census of Antarctic marine diversity, Prime Minister Helen Clark said.

Anyone else see a problem with this? Let's think...it's freaking Antarctica. Couldn't--nay, shouldn't--all coasts be considered northern? For that matter, would Antarctica even technically have more than one coast?

ETA--For the record, I didn't even finish reading the article because I was so bothered by the first paragraph (can one sentence be considered a paragraph?).  I do have some intention of skimming the rest of it at some point, someday.  Maybe.
