What is clear is that the ultra-rich, the fossil fuel people, the bankers, the gun runners, big pharma, big agriculture, etc, really don’t care about their children or grandchildren. Their lives and goals are all about short-term profits and quarterly returns. Saving the world for our grandchildren requires caring, cooperation, the coordination of communities and governments all around the world. That means sacrificing something now in order to help people who don’t even exist. But those people don’t even care about 95% of the people who are here now. Instead, they are spending a lot of their money on convincing people that planning for the future is dangerous and un-American.
