In order to achieve Lifetime Platinum status, you need 50 nights for 10 years in a row, or just being Platinum for 10 years in a row will achieve Lifetime Platinum as well?

Neither. You need 10 platinum years (not necessarily in a row), & 500 nights (spread out however you would like - does not even need to be in a year that you earned platinum)

Just as a data point, the nights from the CC count correct? that would be 10 per year with a business and personal CC and would come out 100 nights after the 10 years
If you think nobody cares about you... just forget to pay your credit card bill

Less, since the cards give you 2 stays per year.
Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.

So 210 stays/nights in 10 years. If you do 21 weekend 1 night stays a year for the next 10 years at a Cat 1 (2k SPG per night), that's 420k SPG for Lifetime Platinum.

What are the chances that weekend nights at cat 1's will still be 2k in 10 years from now?

only 42K per year. And with C&P it's a better value, so even less SPG pts. however, most are a Cat 3+. a few more years left to go -- And places that we need to travel to anyway....
