George Monbiot has a weekly column in the Guardian, a great blog and wrote several books, so far. Linked to his latest book 'Heat: How to Stop the Planet Burning', he launched a new website that creates a space for additional and up-to-date information. Both the book and the site strive to expose corporations' and politicians' false statements and claims about global warming. Monbiot wages war against their mean techniques, trying to make us believe their are taking action and we shouldn't.
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.
