Climate change has not occurred at some arbitrary point, but at a specific phase in our human history – as two industrial super empires co-exist.
On the one hand, the US, which peaked in 1990 and has since been in decline. On the other hand, the rise of China as the second empire of the Super Asian Empire as the industrial power house of the world.
Meanwhile, the accelerating change to the Earth’s climate will continue to present an urgent and dramatic challenge and can only exacerbate any existing social, political and resource stress, consequently lowering the threshold risk for global conflict.
