Future Predictions: China’s Economy Growing to $123 Trillion, or Three Times America’s by 2040, as the Chinese population over 65 triples in number. A few reasons to think China will become a super power.

China’s economy: $123 trillion, 3 times America’s by 2040 per capita income will hit $85,000, more than double the forecast for the European Union … China’s share of global GDP— 40% — will dwarf that of the United States (14%) and the EU (5%) 30 years from now,” one brief generation. China’s political system is more capitalist than America’s as China is rapidly turning into a capitalist consumer economy. China’s massive investments in education, ahead of America is resulting in the next generation of China’s high school enrollment rate reaching 100%, and the college rate hitting about 50%. China’s locking up global resources, using U.S. dollar reserves and China’s quietly buying up future rights to commodity-resources worldwide. China’s rural economy of 700 million adding to growth rate as China’s government statistics underreporting progress. Yes, China does have a long-range plan to conquer America as China’s aware of Pentagon strategies. The “Goldman Conspiracy” is helping China sabotage America so by 2040 China will be the world’s biggest superpower (again). China’s greatest challenge as an emerging economic superpower is also among the hardest for countries to overcome, it’s getting old:

In a shift that is intensifying the economic competition between China and the United States, China’s working-age population has plateaued in size and will begin getting smaller sometime in the next five years, according to demographers and recently released census data. The number of 20-to-24-year-olds, a main source of entry-level and factory labor, is already shrinking, the leading edge of an eventual decline in the overall population. Global average temperatures have risen by 2°C

At the Copenhagen Summit in 2009, a rise of 2°C was agreed as the maximum "safe" limit for global warming. In the early 2040s, this danger point is passed. This occurs despite a plunge in crude oil production – CO2 emissions from past decades are yet to have their full effect on the climate system, while other hydrocarbons (such as coal and "unconventional" oil) saw increased use in the years following peak oil. Although a transition to clean energy is now being achieved, global warming remains a deadly threat to civilisation. From this point onwards, any further increase in temperature will lead to runaway positive feedbacks, exceeding man's ability to control them. It should be noted that 2°C is merely the average global increase. In some regions – such as the poles – the rise has been substantially greater already. The Arctic is now completely free of ice for several weeks a year, while Greenland has reached a tipping point of irreversible melting. In Europe, the Alps are becoming largely devoid of snow, for the first time in millions of years. Having served a role as the "water towers of Europe", this is having a substantial impact on water supplies. Major rivers such as the Rhine, Rhone and Danube have until now relied on snow and glacial melt from these mountains. Switzerland is being especially hard hit, with much of its electricity based on hydroelectric power. In addition, record heatwaves are causing gigantic wildfires, the likes of which have never been experienced before. The Mediterranean has lost a fifth of its rainfall and now has an additional six weeks of heatwave conditions each year. At the foot of the Alps, rockfalls triggered by melting permafrost have caused widespread destruction to villages and towns. Tourism has been decimated, with skiing impossible in many areas. In South America, a similar situation has occurred. Melting glaciers in the Andes have caused water shortages for tens of millions of people. Refugee movements are now a major issue for the region. In Columbia, there has...
