Tired of the real world? Then green your own city!

I've just heard that BP and Electronic Arts (EA) are collaborating to incorporate climate educationg within SimCity Societies (out Nov 15)! Apparently, players will be able to choose between low-carbon technologies and monitor the emissions produced by their cities. If players choose high-carbon technologies, emissions will reach critical levels and natural disasters will become more frequent.
Steve Seabolt at EA comments:
With SimCity Societies, we have the opportunity not only to demonstrate some of the causes and effects of global warming, but also to educate players how seemingly small choices can have a big global impact
Who said computer games weren't educational?
