Climate change simulation's game

Sustainable development, environment and climate change is the last course before Easter's Break. Professor Alessio  D'amato involved us in a climate change simulation game, during which we figured as nations in charge to reach a climate agreement. As good international cooperation's students we are, we came to the final agreement to not exceed the 2.2 °C increasing in temperature by 2030. Maybe homo economicus is going toward the extinction, giving the way to the cooperative man?
