"Your money or your life"

Cartoon: Climate change threatens our existence and economy

In years gone by, thieves would approach their target with the phrase "your money or your life", offering the unfortunate victim a choice of which to give up. Not surprisingly, most chose to give up the money.

I'm showing this cartoon because sometimes i wonder if today we are more alarmed by the potential loss of money (even if it means only being very well-off instead of very very well-off) than we are by the threats to our existence.
