    most of the people in power (heads of corporations, multibillionaires, most politicians) already understand climate change.  Their main concern is to corner the market on precious resources (including fresh water) and "green" technology before winding down fossil fuel consumption.  They are really walking a tight rope as to how bad it can get before all is in place for them.  They are not concerned about mere mortals and how many might die before this all plays out.  Catastrophe is not their concern, any more than all the various forms of life that will be extinct.  Their concern is keeping their power structure intact, which will mean NOT going so far as to completely kill off the planet.  However, by playing god, they may go too far and kill off enough of the planet to revert to the stone age.  Sociopathic thinking and all that, but they are the ones currently in power.
