Progressive Party Welcomes Global Warming

In a draft resolution to be presented at this weekend’s bi-annual congress of the Progressive Party, which is chaired by Prime Minister of Iceland Sigmundur Davíð Gunnlaugsson, global warming is described as bringing “exciting” opportunities.

“With a warming climate, new and exciting opportunities are created: increased grain production, tree farming and more diverse domestic food production, which is part of enforcing Icelandic agriculture,” the draft resolution reads.

The draft resolution also welcomes the contribution of immigrants to society, yet stresses the need to “work against violence towards and among them.”
