# Easy.
Start with a solar collector in the summer hemisphere connected to to a salt/water heat battery array, which in turn connects to a pan-hemispheric megaplumbing network delivering hot water to taps in the winter hemisphere.

# Oh there's also the idea that we give everyone on earth a kilo of permafrost
that they can put in their fridge/freezer and save loads of electricity.
