Vicious Melting Circle

We have a vicious circle. As the arctic ice melts from global warming, oil companies extract more oil from the arctic. When the oil burns, it releases CO₂ which melts the ice further. The oil companies lobby for this as a Good Thing™, (short term profit) even though it means megadeaths for the next generation. Not even pea-brained birds or alligators are that casual with the lives of the next generation.
