“Drowning from exhaustion because there was no ice.”
Is prajna/wisdom/awareness or ignorance preferable? All of us would say “wisdom.”

Cause and effect is the technical definition of “karma.” It’s too bad the effects (melting ice) and the cause (us, driving, etc) are disconnected by “out of sight, out of mind.”
