A company in the Middle Eastern says they plan to tow icebergs northward so they can be turned into vast amounts of drinking water.

I don’t really have a joke here, just that, this is literally a plot point from a 1980s movie called ‘Brewster’s Millions.’ Yeah. In Brewster’s Millions, Richard Pryor plays this guy who has to spend $30 million in a month, and have no assets leftover afterwards. If he wins, he inherits $300 million. So, to win he has to make a ton of bad investments, and one of them is hauling icebergs. Which was like a thing in the 70s and 80s, people figuring out ways to haul icebergs for water.

Global Warming: making the 80s relevant!
