The Magnificent Five glaciers in South Iceland

The glaciers in South Iceland, Vatnajökull, Mýrdalsjökull,  Eyjafjallajökull, Höfsjökull in the central highlands  and Langjökull in  W-Iceland  play a large part in Icelandic tourism.  People coming from  warmer areas where the temperature never goes below zero, consider a tour on a snowmobile or a glacier hike a big adventure.

About a hundred years ago,  the Swedish scientist and Nobel laureate  Svante Arrenius commenced his research about global warming and how it might turn into  a problem for future generations. 
Since then, numerous  studies and tons of reports have been submitted on the matter, but scientists are still debating if the effects of global warming is a fact
