The Null Device

Iceland is set to replace fossil fuels with hydrogen, by installing fuel cells on vehicles (starting with the Reykjavik bus fleet, and continuing on to its fishing trawlers). This will not only reduce Iceland's greenhouse gas emissions dramatically, but also (it is planned) make the state independent of foreign imports for its energy.

Ahh, but could you put up with the winters and the expensive grog?

True, but my plan is: 1) Get rich. 2) Move to Iceland. I'd like to think I can stand the cold, but then I've never been anywhere where it's colder than 5 degrees.

Apparently the suicide rate there is very high; this is partly because of the lack of sunlight.

However, a country that produces the likes of Björk and Sigur Rós, and where every citizen is a parliamentarian, cannot be all bad.
