Rebecca Solnit: Billionaires are out of touch and much too powerful. “The 1% aren’t just the biggest climate wreckers, they also greatly influence how the world responds to the crisis.”

If you were a billionaire, would you rather have politicians arguing about solutions to the climate crisis or about what to do about all those migrants and transsexuals?

Or perhaps just arguing?
