We saw what happens when over-leveraged economies like the U.S. and Europe failed to anticipate the threats posed by unsustainable debt loads; we don't want to see what happens if we ignore signs that we are over-leveraging the planet's resources.

Icelanders don't have the culture of crowds. There are no subways, no train stations, so Facebook has made a great social impact and has played a vital role in the days since the economic crash.
