Iceland
Work has already begun on a series of gigantic dams in the eastern highlands of Iceland, including the massive Karahnjukar dam. The Karahnjukar dam, is designed to provide hydro-electric power for a massive aluminum smelter owned by the US multinational corporation Alcoa. The company plans to close two of its smelting plants in the US and to open new ones in Iceland, using the electricity from the government-subsidized dams to reduce costs. The project is contracted to be built by known war profiteer Bechtel.

The project intersects with recent public debate in Copenhagen about air pollution in the city. In collaboration with Senior Scientist Jørgen Brandt from The National Environmental Research Institute in Denmark a first prototype is developed for making an indicator that can be placed in the city and display local levels of pollution as well as pollution forecasts on individual streets. The project holds an open source script for displaying data from the Internet in a variety of forms.
