How many glaciers can your oil company melt?

Humble Energy, now part of Exxon, bragged about how many glaciers it could melt in 1962. Imagine if that was an actual performance metric. How many glaciers does your company melt?

I know it’s hard to read, in the ad it states that Humble Energy is able to melt 80 tons of glacier each second! That’s insane. I know I’m looking at the ad in insight, but imagine a cigarette company ad in the 50s claiming that their product gives you cancer faster.
