Why does the left care more about climate change when its the right that will be mostly affected by things such as increased refugee flows?

One of the fundamental differences between the political left and political right is that the left is not so self-centered. They prefer to prevent people from having to become refugees.

Because the right of the past few decades has grown increasingly out-of-touch with reality. They not only deny science, they see major problems that don't exist. Look at the defense spending, it's completely out-of-control, even though there is little evidence that it makes the U.S. any safer. We spent 2+ TRILLION DOLLARS on the Iraq War. What did we get out of it? More than 100,000 dead and an unstable Middle East that has become a breeding ground for extremists.
Remember when the right told us about the runaway inflation that was going to result from the actions that the Fed and Congress took to combat the Great Recession? Never happened. After the economy began improving the deficits started going down, until Trump came in. Now we're going to have a TRILLION DOLLAR deficit this year, when the economy is booming! That makes no sense whatsoever, you should pay down debt during boom times. When the next recession happens there will be no room for financial stimulus.
The flow of immigrants into the U.S. is much smaller than it was a couple of decades ago, while many U.S. industries are short of workers.
The right is so in love with their rhetoric that they never consider whether it's based in reality or not.

How do you come up with that? The right will have to share the welfare they get from the left between even more people then?

What does the left have to do with science. I always thought of leftists as artsy flatulent types.

In reality people should care more about the gross disparity of wealth and societal power.Source(s): A new dawn is rising Comrades, lions awaken from their slumber, now the old must fall to give way to the new, and from the chaos we shall forge a new world in the dying embers of the old.
