      incompetent elites is that they are not only incompetent at running the world for everyone's benefit, they are incompetent at running it even for their own.

      Their delusion that enough money can buy them out of global warming is going to screw not only their kids, but many of the wealthy who are currently heads of families.

      Basically, anyone < 60 should be trying to limit the consequences of global warming for their own personal benefit, because anyone in that age bracket is NOT likely to die before "things get really bad".

      It's equivalent to the wealthy classes in Rome cheaping out on military defense because they didn't want to pay for it ... with barbarian armies on the march in their general direction. Suicidally short-sighted.
