Confusion is understandable but ideological blindness is unforgivable
Greenland was never called Iceland – even though it is largely surrounded by the ice cap and covered in glaciers. Iceland, which often has brilliantly green places, is also in the Arctic Circle. But Iceland is not connected to the rest of the Arctic sea ice.
The Arctic can be confusing. But it’s needs protection. If you have not already done so, please sign up to save the Arctic, before big oil risks it all for profit, by visiting: www.savethearctic.org.
For the avoidance of any doubt:
According to the 12th Century oral history “Landnámabók”, Iceland got its modern name from the Norwegian Viking Flóki Vilgerðarson when he saw a distant fjord full of sea-ice from a tall mountain.
In the “Icelandic Sagas”, Erik the Red, a Norwegian-born Icelander was exiled for murder. He sailed away to Greenland and supposedly gave it a pleasant name to attract more settlers.
Confusion may be understandable but ideological blindness is unforgivable. Increasingly obvious climate disruption will not stop until we make serious attempts to stop causing it. Effectively irreversible, it will soon be unstoppable. End of story (in more ways than one).
