Can we break off chunks of ice from antarctica to provide drinking water?

    Yep, theoretically. The problem is just that it would cost a totally disproportionate amount of energy, time, and money to do so at the moment, but it can theoretically be done- the antarctic ice sheet has 61% of the world’s freshwater supply.

    The antarctic ice sheet is mostly composed of fresh water, so that should theoretically be possible. The debate would be whether it would be a feasible plan, given the distance from Antarctica to many places that would be in need of water.
