Iceland – If We Can’t Stop Iceland’s Glaciers from Melting, Let’s Replace Them with Forests (New America)

Gabriella Gricius-Abbott writes: Climate change is unsurprisingly impacting humans and wildlife throughout the Arctic—but the land itself is also changing drastically. Take disappearing glaciers in Iceland, for example. The country is actually gaining land due to this melting ice, raising questions of land ownership and use, conservation, and resource governance. And given that 11 percent of Iceland is covered by glaciers, their retreat presents serious issues for the economy and livelihoods more generally.
