The federal government’s latest report on climate change warns of  dangers to Midwest agriculture production,  a significant portion of the economies of Kansas and Missouri. Increasing temperatures and more extreme weather patterns such as flooding and drought will have serious consequences on crop and livestock production.

The opening sentence flatly contradicts the skepticism of President Donald Trump, who withdrew the United States from the Paris climate accords.

“Earth’s climate is now changing faster than any point in the history of modern civilization, primarily as a result of human activities.' This comes after a recent alarm by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change that humanity’s opportunity for meaningful action may soon slip away.

As long as there is money to be made, nothing will change. Perhaps this is America's idea of population control...but then I think our wars are as well. Our governments' sickening positions: deny climate change and continue the wars.

Yes, and / but also further, America's wars are purely imperialistic, if you can get into the Hegelian analysis of economic change. The Arms Race was ostensibly over after 1991, but we had to keep on keeping on, and then of course gratuitously found a host of new "Enemies" to keep it all going, after 2001. Kant and Hegel:
