    If Climate Change is caused by humans, and it is so dire, why billionaires don't act like it?

    Just a hypothetical question thinking out of the box...
    The super rich like Bill Gates and Warren Buffett and Google boys and Bezos and Jack Ma...flies around the globe in private jets, lives in gigantic mansions, having a huge carbon foot print...
    It is curious, why don't they live and act with such urgency?
    Yet, they tell us to reduce our foot print, give up our SUVs, and reduce fossil fuels and kill good jobs like the XL pipeline... Does this make sense to anyone?
    If I was in their shoes, and I buy into these dire predictions, my first priority would to build a proverbial "Noah's Ark".

    Jack the answer is simple - they are all stupid. All billionaires are just plain stupid.

    That's the only logical conclusion anyone who believes that humans are causing the world to heat up and humans will be the cause of making our planet uninhabitable.

    Why not? To say billionaires are just stupid is no more crazy than the hoax they believe in! Billionaires are just stupid, they are so self indulgent and rich their brains have simply become incapable of doing anything to even save themselves in the face of the empiracle evidence that man is destroying the planet, even when he farts.

    So there, it's true, just ask any democrat, they will not hesitate to tell you billionaires, like Trump, are just plain stupid.

      U know that & I know that but how else can the environmental wackos explain it?Of course the inventors of human caused GW know it's a hoax so all those they've duped are really the stupid ones. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rh4g_17MHug

    It could be that most billionaires don't really believe the lie that humans cause global warming. Rather, I think that they have a Big Government agenda.  And of course, being billionaires, they'd still be free to do whatever they want after the Big Government is fully installed.

    You want to know why? Because billionaires are greedy. They are stuck in their infinite wealth and are ignorant. Just look at Donald Trump. He pulled the US out of the Paris Accord, and God punished our country for it.

    Harvey, Irma, and Maria together could cost the US over $250 billion. A "Noah's Ark" would be a good idea, but if I were a billionaire, I would pour 90% my money in Renewable energy, flood control, Tornado shelters built to withstand speeds of up to 500 mph across all of tornado alley, and Solar panels, which, of course, is under the renewable energy category.

    I would put a seawall on the most vulnerable cities, Like Miami, New Orleans, or Houston (Which has suffered damage)

    These billionaires have potential. What they don't have are the guts.

      Now you are really loosing it. Your TDS has affected your thinking. So it is God's punishment? So what about all other recent tragedies, sunami...earthquakes, typhoons...are they all God's punishment. Didn't 100s of nations signed the Paris Accord?
