  •  Dealing with climate change is practical. (6+ / 0-)

    Believing in the ideals of capitalism so fervently that you ignore climate change isn't.

    •  I don't think regular people believe so fervently (1+ / 0-)
      Recommended by:

      I'm trying to describe the tendency of regular people with little stake in capitalism also being either apathetic or hostile to dealing with climate change. How can they be stirred into action?  How do you appeal to their hope or fear for the future and all of humanity when here-and-now, bread-and-butter issues most dominate their thoughts?

      The elites are definitely a lost cause; they have nowhere to go but down ... and logically they'd be the first targets of the eco-dictator.

      To those who say the New Deal didn't work: WWII was also government spending
