Today's Clean Energy Thinking-Outside-The-Box Award: Icelandic volcanoes could heat British homes
"Volcanic heat from Iceland could generate electricity to power British homes within a decade, according to experts. The geothermal energy would be piped to Britain through the world's longest seabed power cable but would be no more expensive than the next generation of nuclear energy.
The man overseeing the project, Hörður Arnarson, the head of Iceland's state-owned power producer Landsvirkjun, said that it could be completed by 2020.
He told the Times: 'This is a technically challenging project, there's no doubt, but there is no doubt in our mind that it is doable.'"
On 7th day of July 1941, 40,000 US Marines landed in Iceland to replace the 25,000 British troops stationed they since the UK had invaded the year before. Given the the population of Iceland was only 120,000 including women and children, you had more US Marines on the island then you had Adult native males.
Just a comment of Iceland relations with the US. Technically Iceland is closer to North America then Europe, but that includes Greenland and New Foundland before you get to the actual North Amerian Continent.
