The race to zero is on. Almost 200 countries met at the COP26 climate summit in Glasgow with varied promises to reach net-zero carbon emissions in the coming decades by moving away from fossil fuels and transforming how we move, eat and build. The collective goal is to limit the increase in global temperatures to just 1.5 degrees Celsius from pre-industrial levels, rather than the catastrophic 2.7 degrees that scientists predict.

But just how hard is it for an elected official to get to net zero, and at what cost? What steps truly make an impact? See for yourself in this Bloomberg CityLab game. Will you go down in history as the most popular carbon-neutral leader of all time, or will you choke on a cloud of smog?
