    Proof of the emerging climate entitlement class. People with nothing better to do than feign harm from an invisible problem which must be paid for by evil, rich capitalists. These people can see that living on the gravy train off taxpayers, or in their parent’s basement cannot go on for ever. Gotta find a new sugar daddy.
