An Inconvenient Booze

Some say it's from "Greenland Whale Fisheries" by the Pogues, and I'm okay with that, although the older version is more traditionally ship-wise. Yes, the captain comes off a little worse in their version but... Shane MacGowan. The stanza I refer goes something like this:

Oh Greenland is a barren place
A land that's never green
Where there's ice and snow, and the whalefishes blow
And the daylight's seldom seen
Brave boys
And the daylight's seldom seen.
But there's news that Greenland is getting greener everyday. And not just because it's Springtime on Uunartoq Qeqertoq.
So Greenland's getting greener and Iceland has a cute vodka spokesperson.
You deal with antropogenic global climate change your own way.
