Environmentalism is seeking to prevent a massive calamity from befalling the human race, so I don't see it as misanthropic at all.
I can't speak for any particular person's to fund one policy over another, but I can understand putting combating climate change above foreign aid to starving people in Africa, because the first problem is far broader and the response digs much closer to the root of the problem. Aid for fighting starvation in Africa is not only more localized, it tends to be more like cure than prevention.
