The effects of climate change are not only taking part within America it is slowly making its way to the northern hemisphere and taking effect in Iceland. Breiðamerkurjökull is a famous glacier that consists of natural mesmerizing features which has tourists visiting all over the world and as each year passes the glacier is threatened by the rising temperatures. Due to all the natural disasters occurring in the world it is crucial that countries create a plan to moderate and create a sense of stability for the earth’s environment. Many have done so by choosing to follow the Paris Agreement act while others have opposed it. Iceland, however, has not only taken initiative in complying with the Agreement, but has acted in helping prolong the melting of their glaciers by making safe, environmentally friendly changes.
