Capitalism has its own version of morality. Suppose you had a choice:
1. Make a billion dollars, live the rest of your life with a 300 foot yacht and a private jet, with the understanding that the earth will become unfit for life 30 years after you die
2. DON'T make a billion dollars, live a very comfortable life but below billionaire status, and your great-grandchildren will thank you.
In capitalism, the second choice is -immoral-! Profits are GOD! Even cheating and stealing is downright HEROIC if you don't face consequences!
We even elected guy president because he PLAYED a brilliant rich entrepreneur on TV! People don't care that it was all a sham.
So if global warming means we have to slow down on those oil profits, it's best to just insist it's not true.
