In 1783, the greatest volcanic eruption in history took place in Iceland. This had incredible and terrible consequences for all the world. A sulfuride red fog covered the northern hemisphere for months, killing as much as 60,000 people in Europe and an estimated 500,000 in the world. In Iceland, 80% of the cattle and wild animals died and the ground was contaminated for a long period. The consequence of this eruption was an increasing of the little glacial age, which began in the 16th century with winters so cold that the crows were freezing in mid-flight. In the gulf of Mexico, icebergs appeared and everywhere terrible thunderstorms bursted, destroying the corn fields and other foodstuff. These exceptional climate conditions contributed to extreme poverty and famine, particularly in France, leading the people to start the French Revolution. Nevertheless, Iceland is also a true heaven on earth, with exceptional beautiful landscapes, with Europe's greatest waterfalls and glaciers.
