I really don't understand this video, they import it because its cheaper than icelandic ice? what does that mean? its cheaper than putting water in a freezer? cheaper than harvesting ice somewhere in iceland?

wojtekpolska (1 month ago)
still no answer - they import ice because its cheap? but why? nobody would buy dirt from me if i was selling it for 0.01$/Kg there is no answer - you just said that it is cheap because no taxes and cheap transport what do they do with this ice, why do they import it lol

@kev090997 watch the video again then

@kev090997 nobody buys ice from goverment
kev090997 (26 days ago)
@wojtekpolska then go find a video explaining why iceland needs a fk ton of ice? As with all things of this nature, i'd presume it is to sell to its people. as with why it needs to import it, i'd say the video already answered that

I thought Iceland imported ice from Greenland to make Greenland more green and Iceland more icy
Null Void (2 months ago)
Went to Iceland last January weather wasn't even that cold but everyone was dressed like they were gonna climb Everest or something. I realized all of them from the smallest child to the oldest man are sneaking over to Greenland and stealing their ice, they plan raids with their secret language. Transport to the Icelandic highlands are limited during the winter to stop people from learning whats happening there, the truth is out there *How are you Greenland* *All your ice are belong to us* *you are on the way to Deglacierization* *you have no chance to cool down make your time!* *Ha Ha HA* prove they aren't saying that

Michael Mccarthy (2 months ago)
If electricity is so cheap and abundant in Iceland it's still surprising to not just plug in an ice maker and hook up a hose. But I guess that imported ice is really really cheap
Christiansdad2011 (1 month ago)
I agree - I don't get it. Why don't you use a freezer?
Michael Mccarthy (2 months ago)
I guess they couldn't call it Greenland because that name is taken already.

Thanks for the information I always thought iceland was like Antarctica.
Hassan Ali (3 months ago)
@Fmono • 38 years ago • Updated I said I was just comparing the temperatures. I know that iceland and Antarctica don't have the same conditions(storms, temperatures,harsh weather etc).
Fmono • 38 years ago • Updated (3 months ago)
@Hassan Ali Antarctica is unhabitable due to the weather and temperature (no agriculture can be made, no local food/product supply), so if they were the same it wouldn't really make sense to have 300k people living there
Hassan Ali (3 months ago)
@Fmono • 38 years ago • Updated yeah I know it was a just an approximation of how cold I thought iceland was and not iceland is as harsh uninhabitable place like Antarctica.
Fmono • 38 years ago • Updated (3 months ago)
If iceland was like antarctica, yhe population of 340 thousand people wouldn't be able to live there 🤦‍♂️
