Think about it, the warming ain't bad for everyone.  Imagine you're in Florida living in some slum a quarter mile inland and 3 meters above the sea.  All those rich bastids between you and the sea about to get drowned and you are about to have the house on the beach. 
Nope. The rich bastids will have plenty of ammo for their AK47 so they will just kill you and yours and take your house on the hill. (And I'm not just talking about criminal rich bastids).

To my mind this is the real challenge of global warming - to avoid that sort of strife. Read Jared Diamond's "Collapse" for plenty of real evidence.

What makes you think they need ammo? Way before this happens, and it well may not,, the 'rich bastards' will have foreclosed on the hill dwellers' mortgages.

Probably an even more malevolent scenario - and not unlikely.

No doubt the hill dwellers will be told "It's for your own good"

We have certainly went down a rabbit hole here folks.
It is a veritable Black Hole. @GoForSmoke must be wondering what he started with his innocent "The look on Zelensky's face at the UN when his new friend tells him they will be getting along with Putin soon".

With friends like Trump who needs enemies. Turkey, a member of Nato, had already decided that they would be better off buying weapons from Russia before "The Donald" started threatening to destroy their economy. Now that "The Donald" has abandoned the Kurds they too are seeing the benefits of turning to Russia! Meanwhile some 60,000 ISIS fighters are starting to leak from Kurdish prisons.

It is obviously all part of a master plan by a stable genius that we mere mortals are unable to comprehend.

America First is Putin's strategy for world domination and Trump is his punk.

A creaking creeping shadow
stiff against the freezing fog
glares at a tickless watch.

Time has failed him -- all things shall pass.
