Another free online game, this one related to insurance and climate change

Again, here's the disclaimer: Probably not a good idea to do this at work. But a few days after we mentioned one insurer's free online racing game, one of our Twitter followers pointed us to another insurance-related free game on the web.

Financial company Allianz and the World Wildlife Fund have apparently teamed up to create a strategy-based game in which you're a CEO struggling to reduce the company's carbon footprint. You make a series of choices -- offshore wind turbines? microinsurance? etc. -- and see how those choices pencil out.
