The US can't do anything about it unless and until it does not inconvenience Joe Manchin.

This is FARK.

The answer is "C" ..... the answer is always "C"

Here we go again with selfish, entitled a-holes thinking they have a "right" to breathable air, drinkable water, habitable climates or that their whiny little lives are more important than record corporate profits and share holder dividends

It's too late. Yes or no answer, it's too late. Dying people out front should have told you.

If you'd been paying attention, you'd realize they already swung into action a few decades ago, capturing weak govts like USA and Britain and altering the rules to increase the rate that they can steal everything

They think their obscene wealth will help them ride out the coming collapse. They're probably right

He never said that, and you just have to look around to see that the statement is objectively wrong. Even if it was right, by the time the US came around it would be well past too late.

It's already too late and the US is still playing with 'possibilities.'

As long as there is enough money to make a profit and pay off politicians the status quo will stay.

So either the profit margin goes to or below zero...or a sizable portion of the global population dies off....nothing much will change.

That means we need to find all the fossil fuel barons (including Manchin) and execute them all, painfully. We shouldn't allow them to live on their wealth, able to move where climate change hasn't effected an area yet, after successfully destroying the ecosystem that we all rely on. We'll be breathing air soon from cans imported from Druidia (yes, that's a Spaceballs reference) because the wealthy people would rather hoard their money instead of being slightly less wealthy and put their money into trying to fix this broken environment.

Only if it doesn't inconvenience their owners.

It will take the deaths of tens, possibly hundreds of millions before anything will be done.  It won't be too late at that point.  It will just take a way longer time to remediate the problem.  And of course vast numbers of species will have been exterminated as well.

But even then they might not do it.

100 million dead in the US would spur a lot of action.  The same amount in China might not.

Kill off a couple billion though and the problem will sort itself, eventually.

Earth will be fine.  Our ability to thrive on it?  Not so much.

"Yes. There'll be wars. Fought for the same reason most wars in ancient times were fought for: food. They'd use religion or glory or whatever as an excuse, but it was always about food. Farmlands and people to work that land."

A super volcano eruption or two would probably do the job.

Insane wealth means nothing in a collapse, armed guards are with them now because their payments have a value backed by a government.

If things collapse that means no government.

No government means their money means nothing.

But then those armed guards see that said rich people have nice stuff they want and aren't getting paid.

The ultra rich already plan to ride out what is coming in their vaults and compounds, but after society collapses and money is meaningless I imagine those places will turn very ugly as the security details decide they should be in charge, and the people who used to pay them don't actually do anything like grow food or maintain equipment. My only hope for the future is that I get to laugh about that, but I probably won't live that long.
