Far Right are correct in saying that India, China and large parts of Asia are a large problem in the context of Global warming. This is not only related to Global Warming but for example to plastic pollution. They contribute around 75% of plastic pollution to the oceans. If people aknowledge Global warming as an existential problem then dropping bombs on the responsible should be considered at the least for those countries to comply. As a person who does consider global warming to be a semi-problem and a possible existential threat long term, i do consider that at some point we might need to wage war to enforce "Green" rules if the countries don't change course.
The alt-right has jumped on the climate-change denial bandwagon not because the 3rd world also pollutes but because they have been encouraged by the Trumpists to openly embrace cynicism to justify their desire for unrelenting consumerism at the price of sacrificing their own children. This is a new departure because, traditionally, the far-right has valued conservative values including homesteading and environmental protection. That seems to have gone out off the window.
It goes without saying that poor countries will also have to limit their expectations of material growth, but it is hardly possible to ask Indians to start belt-tightening at a time the US emits 10 times more green house gases per capita than India. And even though China has reached European levels and half those of the US, historical emissions for Europe and the US are still higher. Therefore, it is only fair for the industrialized world to take the lead in the fight against climate change. This is not only "moral" but also smart because economic growth in the environmental sector is virtually unlimited. Trump and the old man of the fossil fuel industry will go the way of the dinosaurs.
To declare war on 3rd world countries that don't have the resources to recycle their plastic waste is about the most retarded idea I have ever heard. On the contrary, conflicts need to be solved without war and the resources wasted on defense ought to be put into defending the planet. What we need is an alliance of all the world's nations that have signed onto the Paris climate accord to outlaw the US pariahs that are determined to destroy our future.
