Profit for who? As Deebank pointed out, it's Big Money (by and large) that's dragging it's feet/digging in its heels on this stuff.
The 80 billion dollar carbon trading market (I cited earlier) has a big stake in keeping this narrative going. And scientists are getting grants for climate change over other research topics. Say an entomologist is studying the mating habits of fire ants. If he writes on his grant request "Are Fire Ants Mating Habits Effected By Climate Change" he's more likely to get some money.
And as any economist knows, there's no money to be made by making standard prudent man predictions. For example, a book entitled "Consumer Semi-Durable Expenditures to Increase 2 1/4% in 2020!" will be a dud. But one entitled "How to Profit from the Impending Economic Collapse!" has some chance of flying off bookshelves.
