What is the trajectory, the future outcome of a civilization given certain choices that are made?

In the Adam Frank video (Astrophysicist Adam Frank, Professor of Physics and Astronomy at the University of
Rochester), one of the resources cited in Mr. Noerpel's article, a civilization is a mechanism for using energy and doing work. 

As a civilization’s population grows, it uses more and more of its planet’s resources.  By consuming the planet’s resources, the civilization then changes the conditions of the planet. 

Some terms used in Mr. Noerpel's article:

Anthropocene (noun):  the Anthropocene a proposed term for the present geological epoch (from the time of the Industrial Revolution onwards), during which humanity has begun to have a significant impact on the environment.

Exo-Civilization: a resource harvesting civilization.

Ecolacy:  People who understand the interdependencies that underpin the natural environment are ecolate: the skill they share is called ecolacy

Exo-sociology:  The first to speak of exosociology (and dub the term) was the Soviet astronomer Samuil Aronovich Kaplan in the late 1960’s. Exosociology is the study of possible paths that the future interaction between our Earth civilization and an extraterrestrial civilization could take, thus extending sociology beyond humanity giving it a universal scale.

"....pointless conversation-stopping sound bites like “climate change is political” or a “hoax” or a “Chinese conspiracy” or “climate has changed before”, without teaching these politicians when the climate actually changed and how that happened and what the consequences were."
