    Default Current threats to Earth

    Here are the things that I think are the world's biggest threats right now. Feel free to dispute.

    1. Economic recession
    2. Nuclear weapons
    3. Terrorist groups
    4. Civil war
    5. Disease
    6. Outside forces (comets, asteroids, etc.)

    if you mean global food shortages and water crises as the like, then ok

    No, not this one. I mean an even worse one that is a possibility. But not this overly hyped up one.

    It's the hype. Don't worry, it'll go away in a few decades.

    People lived without money for thousands of years before modern society. All those other things will kill us before having economic trouble. Every single one of them is worse.

    Today's society is different than that. These days, no money, no food. And don't say anything about "living off the land". People haven't been able to do that since World War 1.

    I care enough to critique, but not enough to bother with my own list.
