Fascinating... this game seems to not only explain our world's climate problems in understandable terms but also gives people the ability to imagine solving them. In other words, humans are problem-solving creatures and the first step to solving a problem is to understand it as completely as possible. The second step is to imagine different solutions, try out different scenarios, and make adjustments. It may be a game but it could lead people into taking real action.

Sounds like a great way of educating people,especially the younger who play a lot of video games. Many adults would play it also no doubt but the younger could learn and begin to speak up also.
Good read.
