Keep calm and carry on, fellow teacher.  Yes, the Four Horsemen are on the way and they're bringing the rest of the posse this time.  A lot of what we consider important probably won't be around when the dust settles, but we're a tough, adaptable species and the best could remain.  Our job- pass on the treasure that's somehow stayed afloat in the flood of time-  the math, the poetry, the history;  the science, the knowledge, wisdom, appreciation and hope- to the young, so some might listen and pass it on in turn.  We can no more prepare them for an Age of Chaos than teachers could prepare students for the trenches of Verdun or the hellwind of Hiroshima, but what we   can do, we do...

interviewer: what's going to happen in the future?

teacher: i don't know because it'll be chaotic

interviewer: give me an example

teacher: mass starvation

interviewer: but you can't be absolutely sure

teacher: see my first answer

of course children should be taught about climate change. at least they'll have a better idea why there lives are tougher than their parents and who caused it.

“they'll have a better idea why there lives are tougher than their parents”  Seems each generation is having an easier life than the ones before.  Technology has made it easier to work the farms and get desk jobs instead of everyone doing manual labor jobs.  Even manual labor jobs have become easier due to technology.  Instead of shovels to dig ditches, you have ditch witches.  You no longer need to chop down your own trees and manually saw them to create the boards necessary to build a house.  Just buy your wood from a lumbar yard.  I don’t know of one industry that hasn’t improved and become easier as we move into the future.

"read some science".  I read a lot and in the UK, you can't even elect your monarch.

Danish prince Carl became Norwegian king Haakon, elected by the people in 1905. Hothouse earth is scary and probable because no real action have been done to avoid it.

Malaysia, Cambodia, Samoa, and in effect places like Saudi Arabia.  There are probably others.

Also, you could sort of count the Vatican - though the pope isn't a monarch as such, he is directly elected by a much higher proportion of his country's population than in USA elections.
