Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Great diary, rifek!  I was not aware of this backstory.  Has this information appeared in print and on TV in Iceland?  It is a powerful political message.  It was not just that entrepreneurs and politicians in Iceland got greedy and tried to buy the world.  The were instead the victims of a hit by a TNC and all of the citizens have suffered to the end that Alcoa gets cheap geo-thermal power for its exclusive use.  Properly managed, this has the potential to turn Chris Cook's ideas into a national demonstration project.
