Global Warning game aims to spread awareness

updated 03:40 pm EDT, Fri July 13, 2007

Global Warning game

Independent software developer Midori has released Global Warning, a new environmental game designed to spread awareness of global warming and the ill effects of man-made pollution on planet Earth. "Global warming and environmental issues have never been so covered in the media. It needs to be talked about," says Midori. "People are beginning to realize that something must be done to help stop the ill effects of pollution and environmental irresponsibility." The game features everyday advice and tips about how players can act in real life to live a more sustainable and green existence. Players aim to stop a dump company from setting up an immense landfill by choosing strategic, earth-friendly behavior "cards." Results of player choices direct the impact on finances, morale, and health which ultimately affect whether players survive. Global Warning is priced at $10, with educational licenses available for $100. The game requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later.

    they got it right

    the whole Global Warming fraud IS a game - played by people with a lot of financial things to gain if enough people buy into it.

    And please, no "oh, its real" responses. Of course the earth is getting warmer. So is Mars and Venus. I guess we need to stop driving SUVs there also.

    with the message.....

    this game is trying to make... you'd think they would have made it freeware.

    'Learn about global warming and what to do... for 10 bucks!"

    Guess this is the next big thing to make money off of since 'Jesus on a grilled cheese sandwich'.

    total c***

    Global Warming is due 91% to the sun spikes as noted by the HEAD of NASA. This is a scam created by the world elite to develop and deploy a CARBON TAX on the stupid population. The natural cycle will start cooling down 2013. The world banks will take credit for this natural decline in heat once they get their damn tax on the morons of the world. Yes, AL GORE is full of s***!

    Whew!

    I'm so glad this game was released to spread awareness. If not for this and that concert last weekend I might have never heard of global warming! Bravo on a job well done!

    Science

    The science supports global warming be real AND man-made. Your emotions may disagree, but an international consensus of scientists has been published in detail. DETAIL--which you can investigate for yourself, or report what the "head of NASA" supposedly said out of context.

    I wish it wasn't true, but what we WANT to believe won't change a problem that has to be dealt with.

    PS

    PS, this game looks boring, suitable only for the classroom. But then I never liked card games to begin with. Maybe it's someone else's cup of tea.

    The ignorant raise heads

    robttwo, FastAMX79, mlowe969,

    Two years ago I would have gone on and on, demonstrating how each and every point you have made is mistaken, or purposefully misleading. Thankfully society as whole has moved on now and is taking action. Your participation and consent is not needed anymore. What a relief.

    You and your misunderstandings about global warming will be seen as quaint in the future -- like those who doubted the Flu Epidemic of 1918, or the Dustbowl of the 1930s. A combination of sad and funny.

    In the next few years every product you buy or activity you do will be different than it is now and you wont even have a choice. Much like you don't have a choice about using a catalytic converter today. So, no, we dont need for you to come out of your mental hole. Please stay and let us get our work done.

    And of course there is going to be a new for profit economy around this. And new Green Collar jobs! THAT IS GOOD!!! It offsets any economic hit from the coming energy transition. It gets business and environmentalists together. THIS IS GOOD. This is what Arnold Schwarzenegger and Google "get" out here in California. This crisis has amazing new opportunities inside of it.

    As a compassionate person, I do ask that you find some more neutral information other than your extreme Right Wing web sites. Be skeptical for sure, but dont be a tool of those guys.

    Or you could relax, because you aren't needed for this transition anyway at this point. The rest of us (the majority) are handling it now.

    I must have mis-read my own comment... I never said anything saying global warming was real or fake.

    All I did was comment on the price of the game.

    But you know it all... you already know that I walk to work every day, that I keep things turned off and unplugged...

    oh whatever... I don't even know why I am wasting my time with you.

    Wow

    Wow, "Monstermind" I wasn t even name calling or being hostile but just telling what the facts are on the ground in America right now. You could kick my a**, but then you would still have no choice but to participate in the coming great energy transition. Your future energy sources and products you buy and food that you eat will be of a system that creates much less CO2. So what good would it do to be violent about it?

    I'm not insulting you guys, I'm just telling you that, at this point, the tables have turned and we really don't have to spend much time convincing you of anything anymore. This is a democracy last time I checked. People threatened to kick Jefferson, Adams, and Franklin's a** too. I guess that just happens.

    And Fastmx79, I wasnt saying you were a denier, I was was defending the right of "for profit" companies to ride the coat tails of this societal transition. New ways of making money will offset the cost of the change. This is what California is very hip to right now and will profit and create new "green collar" jobs and new manufacturing of green refrigerators, ect.

    Look guys, nobody is name calling or fight starting here, this is the reality now, from City Counsels to Google. If this raises your anger then perhaps you should check yourself for the true origins of those feelings. I'm not responsible for your feelings about this.
