1] Climate change [amongst other environmental threats] is happening and is a serious problem for all of us

2] Climate change has resulted from our activity

3] Capitalism by focussing on the short term is unlikely to take the longer term, and hence the environment into account

4] Capitalists and corporations will seek to distort the facts of the matter so they can carry on as usual

5] Capitalists are ideologically blinkered against climate change since it exposes the dangers of capitalism as an environmental threat
