This presidency and the upsurge of the extreme right/white supremacy around the world is also (consciously or unconsciously) a reaction to climate change - as those flooded with individualist survivalist impulses line up behind their strong-men - as they prepare for scarcity.
Your choices in times of scarcity are these: share and recalibrate or hoard dwindling resources

And I suspect the hoarding impulse could be our collective downfall-

But its not “first address facism and then get to climate change” - they are the self-same thing.
Our president writes:

“Be strong and prosper.
Be weak and die.”

This isn’t subtle.

And all who cling to illusions of power and superiority around the world assert this as a core value.
This stance will destroy them, and the rest of us, as it is a grandiose illusion, a denial of the factual, intricate interdependence of life.

Embracing our undeniable and complex relatedness to each other and all species is our last chance.

The power-principal is seductive
And the frightened and the selfish succumb to and perpetuate the illusion.

But it is a lie, it is a temptation.

This is closer to the truth:
Lift each other up, tend to each other and live.

Live by dominance and destroy the world.
What you choose matters.

No matter what comes next, or what the outcome what you choose, the stance you take matters.
