Heyo everybody! Please only accept this debate if you are willing to have a serious discussion of the topic.

"Collapse of advanced industrial civilization" includes:

1) A sharp drop in global human population due to population growth that outstrips the Earth's capacity to support humanity, global warfare that causes significant ecological disruption, or a massive global pandemic;

2) The collapse of powerful governments (like US, Western European countries, China, India, or Russia) without a stable large-scale state forming to replace them;

3) Any other upheaval (social or ecological) that results in more simplified technological, social, and economic practices in global society.

Next round is for acceptance and clarification of definitions, if needed. The burden of proof is on me.

Yeah if you talking about climate change. But i was not. I was talking about a major war.

I think with the scientific projections for climate change nothing extremely severe will start happening until about 2050. Yes, we'll have a ton of natural disasters, like Harvey and Maria, and we'll see rising global food and water shortages, but nothing severe enough to cause collapse of major wealthy/powerful governments.

It will happen far sooner than 2100. Try in the next 10 years....if any longer than 20 years....
