Sad day for Iceland

Posted by

This morning the plug was put in one of Iceland’s glacier rivers, starting a process which will drown huge amounts of land, damaging the Icelandic wilderness forever! This is done in the name of pride of a government refusing to listen to common sense and hanging onto arguments like “This has already been decied so we can’t change our decision”.  The plug has been put in but the irreversible damage will mostly happen next spring when winter snow starts to melt on the glaciers, filling the water repository for the Karahnukar dam.
