Vikings and the environment

I must say that I never thought I would be talking about the Vikings and the environment. It seems more that one thousand years ago, the Vikings razed most of the forests in Iceland when they first settled there.

This according to the article “Vikings Razed the Forest. Can Iceland Regrow Them?” by Henry Fountain at the New York Times. It definitely gives you insight into what’s happening in many parts of the world.
