6. People die in this kind of heat.

And the greed of the few is pushing the many towards extinction or at least a much less habitable planet.

Greed.

The root cause is the primacy of the shareholder doctrine. CEOs don't have to consider the environment. Or workers. Or consumers. All they care about is shareholder earnings.

THAT, folks, is what brought us to the situation we're in.

I mean, Trump is the perfect president for the likes of Grover Norquist, who said we need a dumb president who signs laws the Republican Congress sends him. The ONLY downside Trump has for these people is he's a really stupid bully-blowhard who is, in effect, a loose cannon.
