Majority of Icelanders Fear Global Warming

According to a new Gallup poll for the Iceland Nature Conservation Association, 75.4 percent of Icelanders are worried about climate change due to global warming. 17 percent of Icelanders are not particularly worried and almost 8 percent are not at all worried.

The Association says that these results call for the Government to stand by their resolution of increasing information flow to the public about global warming and its possible effects on Iceland and the Arctic.

Iceland Review published an article on Iceland and global warming in its latest issue, where the Icelandic representative to the Arctic Council Gunnar Pálsson expressed the Governments view that global warming could have positive sides, such as opening shipping lanes and bringing tuna to the country’ s south shores.
