the unique and breathtaking highlands of Iceland are under severe threat. The new Icelandic government is aiming at new powerplants, power lines and paved roads to satisfy the energy needs of one of the most energy consumig and polluting industries of the planet - the aluminium shelters. One of the last wildnernesses of Europe is therefore in great danger. Mighty glacial rivers with enormous waterfalls are to be dammed up, fascinating geological and geomorpgologicals formations to be irreversibly destroyed. Iceland is about to waste its most valuable ressource for foreign companies and industriy - its unmatched nature.
An easy thing you can do to show that you are against this insanity is to sign and share this petition and show the Icelandic government that we don't agree with the destruction of unique nature for industrial purposes:
Look at the beauty of the Icelandic highlands. This is a place for nature and not for commercial profit.
