The recent invention of the tachyonic ray has allowed us to see better in the future.
So, in 2025...
board2 turns 18, and it's still dead. But this fact required no future foretelling ability.
We have more details on NSMB8. Between each level, the game asks you for your opinion, proposes you to post on social networks, or shows you an ad. It also turns out that Nintendo will port it to Android and iOS because the 7DS isn't doing well.
Against all expectations, the CO2 level has been greatly lowered. A new energy source has superseded coal and oil/derivates. Said energy source causes another form of pollution though... it's based on subnuclear quark splitting, which isn't a well-mastered technology. It spawns tiny wormholes randomly across Earth's surface. Don't be surprised if there's suddenly a teapot in your shower.
They have also planted trees and grass and shit all over the place to actively lower the CO2 level. You have trees on your house and on your car and on the road. It worked, but it also keeps going -- the CO2 level is quickly falling below the 'normal' level. It basically causes the opposite of global warming. We're all fucking freezing here.
Meaningwhile, they're busy terraforming Venus. There's a lot of work. Back in -3600, Venusians have had the same environmental issues we're having, but they failed to contain those effects. The details are still unknown, but the CO2 level skyrocketed between -3580 and -3540, resulting in temperatures of 460°C.
Anyway, they have giant terraforming machines that run the Venus air through chambers filled with vegetation. The CO2 level is visibly decreasing and is expected to reach acceptable levels near 2032.
Fort Boyard has been bought by the French military and equipped with cannons. With the nearby forts, it protects a large French military fleet. For whatever reason, this kind of war is a thing again. Details are fuzzy, but it seems to spark from Trump getting in power and insulting the Chinese government.
StapleButter is still a crazy fuck. He bought Chateau Secession, transported it to a cooler place and completely restored it. It becomes Hotel Secession****, the place to go for epic vacation, featuring a swimming pool, a casino and other fancy shit.
