"The fast way is to drop thermonuclear weapons over the poles," Elon Musk told James Bond Stephen Colbert in an appearance on The Late Show last night. That's the quickest way to make it livable, of course — this isn't just for fun.

At this point, it's possible that Musk is just trolling us really hard. And if so, well played! Tomorrow night, Colbert will be joined by Uber CEO Travis Kalanick — what's he going to want to nuke, we wonder?
