12. Short-sighted, selfish people not willing to pay to protect our future.

I believe they think they will always be able to escape to a place with low pollution, low crime and populated only with their favorite flavor of human - typically gated communities, remote islands and wooded retreats, yachts, perfect-air penthouses and exclusive resorts. Unfortunately for them, the clock is running out to the day those places will become scarce rather than plentiful and even that world will become extremely cutthroat. Life will not be pretty for us commoners at that point.

Hate to sound fatalistic, but I don't think we will have time to evolve beyond extreme greed and selfishness, rampant consumerism, wastefulness, or psychopathy. We are a messy, destructive species.
