(assuming climate change as 1st principle, not debating individual extreme weather events)

What is less clear - direct consequence: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deep_Adaptation

Deep Adaptation is a concept and social movement based on the view that humanity needs to prepare for the possibility of societal collapse, as environmental change increasingly disrupts social, economic, and political systems. Unlike climate change adaptation, which aims to adapt societies gradually to the effects of climate change, Deep Adaptation is premised on acceptance of impending abrupt transformations of the environment.

Fact that Deep Adaptation is disputed / dismissed / debunked is the best evidence that as a humanity we lost sense making ability we are heading towards a collapse.

As a human civilisation, we are not prepared to deal with fake news.

Yes? No? True? False? Right? Wrong? Sounds like 50 / 50 deal for me.

Dealing with fake news is nothing else than hybrid warfare

Hybrid warfare is a military strategy which employs political warfare and blends conventional warfare, irregular warfare and cyberwarfare with other influencing methods, such as fake news, diplomacy, lawfare and foreign electoral intervention.
