DECISION TO MAKE LITTLE LESS POWER STATIONS IN ICELAND

A small change in the strategy of our country to make a little less electric power stations is good news but some people see this as very negative news. They like to make power stations all over the country although 80% of the electric power made in Iceland is actually to support international industry that is uneconomical for Iceland and supports bad pollution to the environment. Aluminium smelting etc.

News on a website today says in Icelandic this:

Breytingar sem urðu á drögum að tillögu til þingsályktunar um áætlun um vernd og orkunýtingu með því að færa virkjanir í neðri hluta Þjórsár og Skrokkölduvirkjun í biðflokk, leiða til þess að fjárfestingar og afleidd áhrif verða um 270 milljörðum krónum minna á árunum 2012 – 2016 en áður var áætlað.

Here is a link to the news.

Here are links to a new website containing lots of material about how to preserve Icelandic nature in the form of use or preservation. It is still only in Icelandic but visual material is helpful and we wait eagerly for translations.
