The World’s Biggest Problems

The World’s Biggest Problems portal has a simple, clear mission: educating people all around the world about the biggest problems facing humanity.These problems have two criteria, they must be global in scope, and have the potential to rapidly escalate into severe crises.
  1. Economic Collapse : Fragilities in the current global economy could tip the developed world into conditions not seen since the 1920s.
  2. Peak Oil : Petroleum has powered the modern world for almost 100 years; today, many industry insiders say that we may be reaching a permanent peak in oil production. 
  3. Global Water Crisis : Over the last 50 years the human population has nearly tripled, while industrial pollution, unsustainable agriculture, and poor civic planning have decreased the overall water supply. 
  4. Species Extinction : Certain species that human beings depend upon for our food supply are going extinct; if their numbers fall too low we may face extinction ourselves. 
  5. Rapid Climate Change : While the debate rages on about the causes of climate change, global warming is an empirical fact. The problem is both a curse and blessing, in that people from different cultures will either have to work together or face mutual destruction
