Worldchanging ally Serge de Gheldere sends along this fiendish time-suck: Climate Challenge. We like serious games and we think climate change is the most pressing issue of our day, but sending us this little flash-based simulation of the choices a European leader faces attempting to steer a better course -- well, that's just unfair.
This thing is catnip for climate geeks. Go waste an hour.
Seriously life consuming Alex...I'd like to see how much productivity declined by sending this out to the world!
Wow. fun game. only problem is i think it may have been a little buggy. eg:I would reduce carbon emissions to zero (or past?), and next turn I would have 300 or so units of CO2, pushing me past the limits.
Also, I had a full wealth bar almost the whole game (hurrah conservation - good for economy, CO2 and public opinion) but at the end i got a score of 6%. oops?
But seriously fun game either way.
