Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Or, they could have, you know, pushed for investment in technological and economic policies that addressed the problems directly - dealing with trash problems, addressing water pollution directly, pushing for alternative energy in 1980 instead of 2000, etc.

Now, if the motive was, "The world is screwed, so I'm going to steal as much as possible so that in the future, I know that I will live, and have the pick of the remaining plebes to be my slaves."  But as far as a "save the Earth with a backhanded slap" narrative, neoliberalism makes no sense.
