I understand the richest of the rich are all set to move into their pre-built underground "Iron Mountain" cities as anthropogenic climate change coupled with the inevitable geological catastrophes brought on by things like fracking and aging nuclear power facilities wreak havoc upon the earth at large, particularly the coastlines where most people live.

What I don't get is why are their children cooperating? Why aren't the 0.1%'s offspring raising holy hell at the prospect of living underground, eating dead, stored food for the next 4 or more generations while 500mph winds, radiation, biblical-caliber floods and temperature extremes wipe out everybody and most of everything else? They should be more aware than anyone else of the consequences of their parents' actions. It makes no sense to me whatsoever.
