Since I subscribe to the New York Times, I do not know if this op-ed by Iceland’s Prime Minister is behind a paywall, but it is an important read. The long and short of it is that today she will join a group of artists and scientists and the former president of Ireland on a trip to bid farewell to what was once a six-square-mile ice field and is now a crater lake.  The trip will include the installation of a memorial shield that reads:

“Ok [the name of the glacier] is the first Icelandic glacier to lose its status as a glacier. In the next 200 years, all our glaciers are expected to follow the same path. This monument is to acknowledge that we know what is happening and what needs to be done. Only you know if we did it.”
