Heatwave after heatwave, the world keeps hitting swings of new highs, record lows, floods and droughts. It feels like our equilibrium point is far off now

We actually hit 50c three days in a row back in 2017, here in Phoenix, AZ. I'm waiting to break that record

Oh, there'll be equilibrium

It'll just be at 8 to 12oC above 1850s levels, when the feedback loops have run their course, all ice has melted, and we have stopped polluting our environment

When we're all dead

I am no scientist. I am convinced we are heading to a 15% food shortage by next year. I see people asking when will collapse happen? It breaks my heart every time. Collapse is Katrina. Collapse is New York in the middle of the pandemic. Collapse is Vaison La Romaine France flashflood in 1996, Insul Germany 2021. These are historical events taking place in first world land. Soon, in the next 5 year or so, we will all experience these stressors in a global, much closer time frame. We are heading mechanically toward this direction. When is collapse? Now. Where is it? Everywhere, everywhere your local government cannot spend its fuel driven economy to rebuild. Don't rebuild. Preserve your regional force, focus on critical infrastructure, build sustainable food supply chain. We are in the end game, it's been a decade already, we sleep walked into the great filter

Collapse is the increasing number of unhoused, undernourished and increasinglyunwell in every city. We are them and weit

Some shortages expected next year; tomatoes (even ketchup), avocados, mustard, sugar, wheat, chick peas, cotton and all things cotton, Anything that comes in an aluminum can which is really disrupting the pet food industry
Edit- I do not care about soda, or sugar, but I think it’s really telling that Pepsi and Coke are shutting down plants right now because they can’t find sugar
Puerto Rico has been collapsing for DECADES. I'm witnessing a LOT of the systemic issues that I witnessed there. This isn't an overnight thing and now add climate change into the equation?

Even Matrix 4 was bad. Like? Cmon. What's next, Aliens? Potato people? Regional drought?
