Could YOU solve the earth's environmental problems?
Finally recognizing the gravity of the environmental crisis, the United Nations has appointed you its High Commissioner of the Environment. You have the powers to levy taxes on industry and grant subsidies to a variety of worthwhile activities.
You must use this power wisely, for you are responsible for all respects of the environmental crisis. You are graded on your ability to balance the world's economic well-being with the vitality of the earth's ecology. If your policies cripple industrial productivity, you will lose just as surely as if the world is destroyed by toxic pollution.
There are 150 different factors that go into the game: 150 screens, 150 equations, 150 problems. And they are all interrelated. Just like real life.
- 150 screens detailing environmental issues
- Simple "hypertext" like browsing capabilities
- Easy to play, intellectually challenging
- Detailed reference manual with extensive background information
- User changeable equations for direct control of the simulation
