Great Initiative
"Aclima offers not only environmental sensors tuned to the specific needs of public and private sector clients, but the managed IT infrastructure to process, analyze, and visualize gathered data."

I think this should lead to more intelligent monitoring of data and most importantly the integration of data with auotmated decision-making. Overall, this would be smarter control of the internal environment based on the external factors. Ultimately, we should see more efficient use of resources through this.

Indoor vs Outdoor
"Herzl said that while we spend 90% of our time indoors, what happens in the surrounding area has an effect."

I agree with Herzl. That is indeed quite an intelligent remark. We may think that the internal environment that we spend time in is under our control, but that itself cannot exist in isolation and does get influenced a lot by the external factors. There's no way you can completely control the internal environment while disregarding the external one completely.

Government isn't interested in real pollution
Great idea.  The only problem is that government most likely will not allow the results of the emissions testing conducted by Google to see the light of day in the same way the federal government will not permit the actual radiation levels/effects emanating from the Fukushima disaster to the west coast of the US to be published.   I can visualize the red tape Google will run into since it is not specifically blessed by the EPA to supply the data.

Re: Government isn't interested in real pollution
asksqn, if the feds won't allow the publishing of Fukishima radiation levels on the West Coast, where are you finding them and following them? And why would the feds not allow the radiation levels to get out? I can understand why the Japanese government would try to obscure the trust, but what benefit does the US gov have?
