"We are in danger of destroying ourselves by our greed and stupidity. We cannot remain looking inwards at ourselves on a small and increasingly polluted and overcrowded planet"
- Stephen Hawking
Whilst we all have our own immediate problems, some as trivial as which smartphone to buy. And other more pressing matters, like how do I feed my family today. We tend to focus on short term problems that face us personally. A potential global catastrophe and our survival as a species long term barely registers.
However, this is a serious issue. There are real existential threats which could lead to human extinction, we need to plan now for our survival.
