The corporate oligarchy knows climate warming is baked in the atmosphere which is why they feel obliged to hoard all the wealth and power now. They also believe they can use climate change to elevate themselves more as the world becomes more poor they become more powerful by maintaining their wealth and power. They see Climate Change as an opportunity to grab power and resources.
They already have plans for floating cities, communities and homes that only the super wealthy can afford that will have its own laws because they are not within nation territory waters. By law they could enslave people and live like demigods.
This is how those muggafuggas think.
