Senior military and intelligence officials have continued to warn climate change could undermine America’s national security — a position President Trump rejects.'

I collect links to Climate denials , like this one Americans' Extinction Denial Syndrome | OpEdNews which talks about Round-ups destruction.; "Concentrated wealth warps perceptions of crisis and immunizes elites against the practical and psychological threats of catastrophe. They are convinced of their own ability to survive the apocalypse: cataclysm is a preoccupation of the poor. In the absence of an official plan, you'd better have your own -- something the extremely wealthy are already working on for themselves."


and this one The End of the World Notes From the Freak Show
