The term “climate moochers” reflects that some people benefit while causing harm, and keep doing it anyway. For example, fossil fuel companies cause millions of dollars in damage to environmental and human health, but they are able to reap the benefits without paying these costs. We call out climate moochers because they are examples of how NOT to behave, and to stress the problems we still have to solve. There are many!
