A flood temporarily swamped London, Tokyo, the Netherlands and the island of Ibizia in a dramatic illustration of climate change. According to witnesses, avatars remained calm and no rioting or looting was reported. Revellers in one bar replaced their stools and table with boats and continued drinking, though they were overheard slurring something about the dangers of global warming.
Implications - Simulated images or videos of situations in which human beings are able to calmly and rationally react when a natural disaster strikes may serve as a relief to the fear instilled into people's minds today concerning global warming. Many movies and Hollywood films portray natural disasters striking and immediately introducing chaos and disorder into society. Companies that can demonstrate ways in which such situations can be managed may generate a sense of trust from consumers in their products and other services.
