Persuasive Writing: Should there be snow in Antarctica?

Should there be snow in Antarctica?  Here are some Room 10 opinions...

I believe there shouldn't be snow in Antarctica because small animals like penguins might get blown over.  Also it would be very difficult to have a race there.  Another reason is that if there is too much snow and you have just got out of a plane, you might get frozen.  That is why there shouldn't be snow there.

I think there should be snow in Antarctica because all the animals would die if there wasn't snow.  The race to be first to the South Pole would also not be much of a challenge without snow.  Another reason is that snow can be very interesting and if they tried to explore the
 Arctic instead they might get eaten by a polar bear, but there are
 no polar bears in Antarctica. Lastly, snow is really fun.  There should definitely be snow in Antarctica.

I believe snow shouldn't be in Antarctica because if you are racing someone to the South Pole it would be better and much easier.  Another reason is that it would be much warmer and you wouldn't be so very very cold.  I also think that snow shouldn't be in Antarctica because then there wouldn't be any blizzards and people wouldn't get lost.  Antarctica would be safer without snow.

There should be snow in Antarctica because all the wild life like penguins and seals would die if it wasn't there.   Also birds and other animals might not exist any more because they would be extinct.  That would be very sad so we should keep the snow in Antarctica.
