True. They want to force you to lose sleep rising early to commute, to be forced to sit in a cubicle glowered at as if you can never be trusted to actually do your job, treated as if you are not "productive" unless you are as uncomfortable, miserable & desperate as possible.

I'm starting to write a novel that incorporates a bit of this. It likely isn't as accurate as your research, but it predicts 99% of people will be dead by 2066 due to the climate wars (worldwide schisms fought over resource acquisition). justunderreality.com/qsc_tim鈥

At this point global weather will become increasingly chaotic due to loss of arctic ice plus exponential methane release. Once blue ocean event becomes the norm all bets are off and massive crop failures globally are inevitable.

Some might say that your timescales are a little optimistic, do we have that many decades - this is an accelerating phenomenon and has begun NOW?

2082 Summer temperatures in Africa, India, Australia, Middle East and Central America become unsurvivable: 50-60 degrees. All useful rainfall ceases & these regions transition to dustbowls & deserts. What remnants of forests there were, burn. 8/12 #PlausibleWorstCaseScenario

2112 Final extinction event of all large lifeforms draws toward completion. Small numbers of humans survive on stored food in purpose-built shelters near the poles. Resource banditry and disease soon wipe them out. 11/12 #PlausibleWorstCaseScenario #ClimateCrisis #Extinction
