    Bio Fuel from fahrenderfisch
    Scientists are working on how to make fuel from rice.
    1. Great! Since burning petrol increases global warming, and we run out of it anyway, support it! - Costs 15% of income per turn; +1:) in cities with oil for some time; Leads to Rice Out
    2. What? Why? Are we running out of oil? Is it Global Warming!? - +1:yuck: and-5%:hammers: in cities with oil for some time; Leads to High Rices!
    They are basically the same, just that option 2 has less positives, since you gave no money to your scientist.

    Rice Out
    The scientist found a way to make fuel from rice in mass production, but now your storage of rice is getting short and the price is rising.
    1. Well, maybe I panicked a bit, global warming is not as bad after all. Finance some more PR work and import more oil! There must be more somewhere... - +1:yuck: and -10%:hammers: in all cities with oil for some time; -1 with other civs due to bullying them out of fuel; -5 gold per turn every time this option is selected; Event will reoccur regularly
    2. Phew, about time. Oil is getting short, and I'm already sweating. Pass a law that this fuel has to be used. Oh, and buy the missing rice from global markets - +3 :) and +3 :health: in all cities; +10% :hammers: in cities with oil (permanent); -2 with other civs (rising food prices); Civs with Sid's Sushi are likely to declare war (rising food prices); If you have Sid's Sushi, +10 :mad: for some time in all cities with the corporation; Forced to spend gold (maybe 10 per rice bonus on the map); Event never reappears
    3. No Rice? No Way! Give the scientist even more money to find alternative fuel sources. And build a new research infrastructure - +1:mad: in all Sushi cities (since it takes a while to find alternatives); -10%:hammers: for some time; +2 :) and +1:health: in all cities (permanent); -10% per turn of your income (increases each time it appears); Makes the event reoccur with increasing speed; With each occurrence, you're more likely to find an alternative and end the repetition
    High Rices!
    Even though you ignored him, he went ahead and discovered the technology he needed. Unfortunately, you have no control over him, as you didn't fund him. And now, rice is in short supply and prices are rising.
    1. The idiot! I told him we didn't need this! There's no global warming and we've still got plenty of oil. Finance some more PR work... and import more oil! - +1:yuck: and -10%:hammers: in all cities with oil for some time; -1 with other civs (since you're buying their oil and the price is rising); -5 gold per turn (every time this option is chosen); Event will occur regularly
    2. Phew, about time. Oil is getting short, and I'm already sweating.It's lucky that scientists don't listen to politicians.Pass a law that this fuel has to be used and buy more rice from global markets - +1 :) and +2 :health: in all cities (permanent); -2 with other civs (rising food prices); Civs with Sid's Sushi are likely to declare war (rising food prices); If you have Sid's Sushi, +10 :mad: for some time in all cities with the corporation; Forced to spend gold (maybe 10 per rice bonus on the map); Event never reappears

    maybe having wahabism/radical islamism in a city which is not its state ideology would increse the risk of a 'terrorist atrocity' happening to that civ.Or,indeed any ideology

    [country] wants to join your SDI system and asks to built SDI sites on their territory, but your Foriegn Minister warns you that it can trigger protests of the neighbouring countries concerned with the balance of power in the region:

    Tell them that additional SDI sites are not needed. ([country] gets SDI, +2:) with [country], +1:mad: with countries neighbouring [country])

    Of cause we simply must agree, building additional sites will boost our systeme effectiveness.(+5% to SDI's chanses to destroy ISBMs,[country] gets SDI, +3:) with [country], +5:mad: with countries neighbouring [country]

    I think I've found the solution, we'll create a global SDI system! (+10% to SDI's chances to destroy ISBMs, [country] and it's neighbours get SDI, +1:) with [country] and it's neighbours)

    No, we'll keep our military secrets.
