Iceland Under Attack – Maps in English showing the “Intended Master Plan” for the destruction of Iceland / Very useful, but dated in that in a desperate attempt to rescue the glacial rivers it offers the geothermal fields as an alternative source of energy for heavy industry. At the time that the maps were being prepared (in 2004) many Icelandic environmentalists pointed out the folly of such a naive “strategy”. Now that heavy industry has turned its greedy eye on the geothermal areas this sceptisism has been proved right. SI have always been opposed to any use of geothermal energy for heavy industry.
