Today in great ideas that probably aren’t going to happen: the U.S. government approached Disney with the idea of using the smash hit animated musical “Frozen” to teach kids about the dangers of climate change.

Speaking at the Arctic Frontiers conference in Tromsø, Norway, Adm. Robert Papp, the State Department’s special representative for the Arctic, revealed that he had met with a Disney exec to pitch the idea.

“I said, you’ve taught an entire generation about the Arctic,” Papp recalled. “Unfortunately, the Arctic that you’ve taught them about is a fantasy kingdom in Norway where everything is nice.”
