Virtually Virtuous

If you think you could do a better job of tackling climate change than the world’s policymakers, now’s your chance. At least in a simulated sort of way.

As you may have read in the “Virtually Virtuous” item in the March/April issue of Sierra, a number of websites are endeavoring to make the political and economic complexities of global climate change available to anyone on the Internet as a game.

Two are Climate Challenge, run by the BBC, and CO2FX.

Can you wrestle carbon emissions downward while avoiding an insurrection?

Good luck, grasshopper.
