Electronic Arts (EA), headquartered in Redwood City, Calif., and BP Alternative Energy have collaborated to include climate change education within SimCity Societies, the new version of EA's city-building simulation computer games.

Game players can create a greener environment and avoid hazards caused by excessive carbon emissions in their virtual cities by choosing from a variety of BP Alternative Energy low-carbon power options, including wind farms, the companies explain. Players who choose less expensive building options that release high levels of carbon dioxide will see their cities' carbon ratings rise and face a greater threat of natural disaster.

According to the companies, the feature is intended to promote the use of renewable and low-carbon energy technologies as a way to combat climate change.
