    No, I really don't think so.

    I believe that you underestimate the potential for self-delusion.  Their lives today are so good, what the F is someone talking about in terms of threats. They really believe that the stock ticker reports reflect reality. Etc ... Self-delusion far more than fostering climate change to gain even more power.  When GDP is 1/2 today's, so what if you have 50% more of it?

      They are totally convinced they can protect themselves from both human mobs and climate disasters.

      I do hold out hope that somewhere, someday, smarter people will overcome them and have enough land that can sustain a population to go forward - in a very different civilization.
