WWO completely changed my worldview for the better, I had no idea about Peak Oil before that. Now I'm so soak in doom, I'm like the intellectual Exxon-Valdez.

I haven't heard yet about this new features from a gme. I mean it seems that many young people would be more aware of the environment if tey would implement it in the game since kids and young teens nowadays were more concern about playing games rather than be aware of environmental problem so if they can have both it would be to the advantage.
