The Freeze Wall

BLDGBLOG points out something pretty crazy:

Anglo-Dutch oil firm Shell has apparently decided to construct a monumental underground wall of ice stretching across several oil shale deposits in Colorado, Utah, and Wyoming. They call it the “freeze wall.”

The Denver Post article is here.

They’re doing this to get at an absolute crapload of oil shale. But as for myself, I’m thinking (and if you have any sense and are as addicted to A Song of Ice and Fire as I am) two things.

One, does this mean The Others are coming? And two, can I have a freaking great direwolf? Pretty please?
