Has anyone created a game - RPG, Computer, tabletop etc - that uses Global Warming as its basis?

There are many scientific studies that make specific scenario projections about the future (Six Degrees: Our Future on a Hotter Planet
), not unlike the post-nuclear scenarios of the 1950s-80s that spawned so many movies (threads), games (Gamma World etc).. yet Global Warming today seems even more assured to happen (the apocalypse is happening in slow motion as we watch the poles melt, wild weather events etc). There are many generic apocalypse games, that rely on fantasy elements (zombies), but I'm unaware of any hard realism games that look at the planet under the more extreme Global Warming scientific predictions (no fantasy needed).
