I wouldn't extrapolate the future based on the dysfunctional leadership of Trump which is set to expire in only a few weeks time. I mean, I'm not discounting the dysfunctionality of the public themselves in all this, which will remain in a post-Trump era, but if there is anything to be had from of top-down then it's worth seeing what Biden does.

Neither would I. Which is why I choose an Obama era "hopes and dreams" episode as my example.

It is always worth seeing what a new political leader will do. But as far as a effective global response from old leaders or future ones....someone remind me...how much has atmospheric CO2 dropped since COP21 was enacted?

From Armie? Absolutely. He has been rinsing and recycling his end of the world claims since 2005 or so. Must have worked his way through 4 or 5 cycles of it by now. Each time the world doesn't end, he does a "yeah...BUT IT'LL HAPPEN TOMORROW INSTEAD!!". He's got at least 4 or 5 of these cycles under his belt at this point. And he isn't even the worst of the lot. Don't worry, there are folks here with stuff between their ears still working, you just need to separate the wheat from the chaff a little first.

The problem with predicting when a civilization collapse is that even when its collapse is pretty obvious and inevitable, the process can take a while. I think the writing was definitely on the wall for Rome around 410 AD. Rome got sacked once, and later that same year the Roman Empire declared that Britain was on its own. I think it was like 471 AD that the Western Roman Empire collapsed for good.

61 years... that's easily most human lifetimes back then. I could try and predict the US will collapse in 2021 or 2022 or 2023 and it could well collapse in 2050. Or I could collapse in 2050, and a black swan event causes it to collapse in March 2021.
An ideology is by definition not a search for TRUTH-but a search for PROOF that its point of view is right

"Humans of the GREAT RESET: What the future MIGHT look like in 2021 – if the controlling elites have their way"
https://www.rt.com/news/510860-great-re ... edictions/

"With vaccine rollouts underway, humanity looks set to win the fight against the coronavirus. But some elites planning a post-coronavirus ‘Great Reset’ don’t want to go back to normal. Here’s what they have planned instead.
As lockdowns and mask mandates became a part of daily life over the last year, politicians the world over asked their citizenry to accept “The New Normal.” The phrase became ubiquitous, but as vaccines inched closer to deployment, that phrase was replaced with a new one, “The Great Reset,” used to describe the monumental changes to human society needed in a post-coronavirus world.

Unveiled in May by Britain’s Prince Charles and the World Economic Forum’s Klaus Schwab, the ‘Great Reset’ is an ambitious plan to create a more equal, cashless, integrated and sustainable global society. World leaders have seemingly signed up to the plan, with its catchphrase, “Build Back Better” featured prominently in incoming US President Joe Biden’s campaign messaging."

Pretty depressive article on what our dystopian future could be like in the coming decade, and beyond. Covers several aspects of the changes planned. Includes link to WEF video on the subject. The future today looks worse than I ever imagined. I pity the young; their future looks bleak.

The population is getting so dumbed down and gullible this gaslighting is working! The elites desire this outcome which is completely evident by the 4 years of TDS. We can see it with the extreme pandemic response and the surveillance state being created. The WEF is opening talking about it. The Transition Integrity Project openly explained how they were going to deal with this election. The evidence is there and if you disagree you are labeled a conspiracy advocate.

“Baseless Conspiracy Theories” and our Knowledge Crisis.”
https://humanevents.com/2020/12/22/base ... ge-crisis/

“THE FALSE EQUIVALENCE OF EVIDENCE, PROOF, AND TRUTH In the media’s gaslighting about the (il)legitimacy of Election 2020, we can discern one of their most inventive ploys for cultivating this knowledge crisis: the false conflation of evidence, proof, and truth. These are three discrete concepts, but they are increasingly treated as one by the major media outlets. For example, there can be substantial evidence for a claim that is nevertheless unproven; then, there exist truths for which there is neither evidence nor proof. Even more torturous is the fact that there are some things that are proven (with evidence), that are nevertheless false. But the left recognizes none of these distinctions. They falsely maintain that there is “no evidence” for claims of election fraud, when what they mean is that there is no proof that fraud produced a false outcome. Speak—and speak in the knowledge that the only baseless claim is the one that says it is “baseless” to assert the truth that this election can never be construed as free and fair. Needless to say, the erroneous conflation of these concepts is used to undermine claims of truth that are undesirable for the left’s agenda. Their conflation is also used to advance “proofs” for claims that the left would like to be true, despite the fact that they actually only have circumstantial evidence. Consider how Russian Collusion circulated for years as a “proven” truth, even though there existed only the barest, biased indications of its possibility. Consider how one woman’s uncorroborated assertion that she was pinned to a bed 30 years ago by a future Supreme Court nominee—on a date and in a place that she could not recall—was sufficient to upend the entire Constitutionally-mandated process for confirming a justice to the highest court. Similar examples of this rhetorical misdirection by the left are legion. Our knowledge crisis is a deliberately manufactured means to undermine public confidence in a shared sense of what is real, as a means to minimize the prospect of organized opposition to the new order that our elites are working to install. This crisis demands that each of us rely on our own perceptions—perhaps more than we ever have. Doing so takes courage, especially given that saying what you saw (when it undermines the Narrative), ensures you are denigrated as a sub-rational lunatic who traffics in “baseless conspiracy theories.” Let the talking heads talk. But the concerns about the legitimacy of this election are anything but baseless. Evidence abounds. They are counting that our cowardice and shame will be sufficient to make us deny those facts. If we will not testify to that evidence openly, then it might as well not exist. We cannot be cowards and we can’t be ashamed. Speak—and speak in the knowledge that the only baseless claim is the one that says it is “baseless” to assert the truth that this election can never be construed as free and fair.”

Really? The russian state funded propaganda channel is where you get your news?
No wonder you're depressed.
The legitimate object of government, is to do for a community of people, whatever they need to have done, but can not do, at all, or can not, so well do, for themselves -- in their separate, and individual capacities.
