Climate change is like God. Just like God, it gives many otherwise lost souls a reason for living, and just like God, it gives those same lost souls a cause to cling to, a cause which they will defend to the death, even in the face of incontrovertible evidence to the opposite.
And, just like God, it creates schisms within its own ranks, who then play the interminable game of "my god is bigger than your god".
Actually, the game of climate change might prove to be a winner. Based on Monopoly, you could move round a board, rolling the dice (metaphorically as well as literally), buying up wind farms and sun farms, get penalised for fracking and injudicious use of fossil fuels, and each time you pass go, be awarded $200 of moral self righteousness.
Instead of going to jail, you would be sent to America, where all bar the frothy mouthed regard climate change as a joke in rather poor taste, and see fracking as the new economic Messiah. Smart chaps and chappesses, those yankies.
It would of course create some interesting moral dilemmas for those of a green hue when playing it - after all, in their somewhat monocular perspective, all property is theft, especially if it involves harnessing natural resources, and profiting from them.
They would probably end up playing to lose, which is pretty much what most climate change protestors do in real life; honestly, do they really think climbing up building, waving puerile banners and generally irritating the general populace is a winning strategem?
Of course, it would sort the wheat from the chaff - there's nothing like a little cash in the back pocket to tempt the worthy off the straight and narrow.
Imagine the dilemma of Bob Woodpigeon, finding he owns Mayfair and Park Lane, and realising that if he builds Biofuel Plants on each, other players will have to pay him heaps of cold hard cash each time they land on them.
Such is how capitalists are made, and such is why the ranks of the green are filled with the poor and undeserving; those smart enough to escape do so upon reaching maturity, which judging from their members is a mental, not physical progression.
It's hard to see Climate Change - The Game, becoming an enduring favourite - climate change itself is just a fad, and will quickly be replaced by the next big thing, but I might make a few bob out of it.
