"Iceberg hunting" is more and more popular

It's a real job, which is becoming more and more popular in Canada. Here is how "iceberg hunters" make a living.

Canadians utilizing the purest water they can

This man isn't hunting an animal. But these huge blocks of ice. Here, in Newfoundland, Canada, iceberg hunting is all the rage. Frozen for over this water is boasted for its purity 10,000 years and can be sold at local stores for around $11 a bottle. Edward Kean gave up his job as a fisherman Edward Kean 20 years ago to devote himself to this white gold rush. He and his crew fire several times to break off chunks of ice. Once they've hauled the ice up onto the boat, they grind it using an excavator.

In Newfoundland, it's like a falling leaf, they're going to die in a couple, three weeks, and naturally be gone back to nature anyway. “So, we're not here hurting the environment, we're not taking nothing away, we're just utilizing the purest water we can get.” Between May and July 2019, the crew harvested around 800,000 liters of iceberg water. Every morning at dawn, Kean sails out with three other crew members to hunt what has become his own personal white gold: icebergs. For more than 20 years, he has hauled in the mighty ice giants and then sold the water for a handsome profit to local companies, which then bottle it, mix it into booze or use it to make cosmetics.

Today, the environmental impact of these operations has become a hot topic. Impact of these Environmentally speaking, transporting water thousands and thousands of kilometers, from the poles to the consumers, is an abomination. But 800,000 liters is nothing compared to the size of icebergs in Greenland." Because of global warming, more and more ice is breaking free and drifting to the coats. It's a tangible example of global warming, Laurent Lucazeau seeing icebergs drifting over to areas where the water is this warm. It really makes you think.

    While this may seem harmless there is the human health to consider. Microbial that probably never been encountered or discovered can create health problems. Proper screening and testing should be carried out.

    I call “Bullshit” on your fake global warming scam. Globalist thieves now trying to monetize air and water because of greed. God made this earth perfect. And it’s weather is cyclical in nature. Stop believing the lies coming from the same people who are now killing you with the man made virus and the jab! For what? A virus that has a proven 99.7% recovery rate. And in the meantime these globalist billionaires fly around in their private jets and keep building mansions and cruising around in their mega yachts laughing at all the sleeping sheep, and have no regard for anything but themselves! Wake up!!!
