Yes. I’m shouting into the wind but hard rules will need to be implemented. My fear is the tipping points of state collapse can come from a number of sources. That is full Trump dream of survival of the fittest or warlordism. That will lead to areas being simply abandoned as has happened in central Africa. Needless to say that Trump and his goons won’t last long enough to matter.

I’m fairly sure China will make it but they won’t support half the planet. These things can turn into a cascade with 50–100 million people as climate refugees from equatorial Africa and South America. The EU and US will go under fairly quickly as they break up.

This will go quickly. People need to start looking for available safe havens accessible to them. Five years may be the point of no return for that.

I’ll stop there.
