Regardless of any kind of silly appeals to realism or even more
preposterous suspicions of political agenda, I would want the global
warming behaviour to be adjustable by users based on my own
observations of multiplayer games. We have had a server setting
to turn off global warming for a long time in the server part of the
warclient project, and in the past many months, disabled global
warming has been the default for online games because the majority
of players would appear to prefer it that way.

There is a worker unit already... :|

Could you be a little more specific? If you give a clear and detailed
specification of what you would like, and it is a good idea, then
that would raise the chances of someone becoming interested
in implementing it for you. Well... maybe. ;)
