(35 year record high this year for anarctica, and 50% increase for Arctic ice in 2013)Basically it turns out that Global Warming is little more than a marxist exercise in wealth redistribution. Al Gore has made a ton of money on global warming hype but hasn't sold any of his many waterfront properties.It is sobering to ponder what mankind could have accomplished with the huge sums flushed on global warming.Still I love this kind of simulation game even when it is largely unrealistic. The oil production model of this game assumes oil production will keep going down (peak oil theory), but reality keeps moving in the opposite direction.
