Some people were laughing just a few years ago while others warned of it early on but today you have to be a moron to ignore not only the overwhelming scientific evidence but the increase in severe weather all over the globe.

It is a terrible thing that so many people still suffer from malnutrition and even starvation when in other places ( here for example) so much food goes to waste.

Short term, I think we're in trouble. We are headed towards a major deleveraging event, namely in overvalued corporate debt, which has been feasting on years of extra low interest rates, quantitative easing and stock buybacks. With interest rates increasing and stimulus running its course, the party seems to be over. This will have an effect on the rest of the global economy, along with monetary and fiscal prospects here at home. Debt will increase, as growth decreases. But in the long term, I'm confident that we will recover and seize the opportunities of new technological advances. We have to get through a rough patch in the next couple months and years, that will usher in major changes in most fields, starting with finance.

The frequency of wars are actually down, but the potential for a catastrophic outcome for humanity has increased exponentially with newer forms of warfare. Conflict mitigation is very important in these circumstances.

Wars are going to be fought in the future over control water sheds. The Middle East and the China/India border are going to be trouble spots in the coming years in that regard.

Disinformation not only by the media but politicians looking to spin alternative narratives is a major problem. They do it to wear people down; the more disinformation is created, the more difficult it becomes to refute all of it. The biggest lies are the most audacious.

The biggest barrier to healthcare access in this country is cost. Too many interests and middlemen, from device makers and hospital companies to pharmacy benefit managers, taking their own pound of flesh out of the system. Price fixing and oligopolies are rampant in that sector.

Still a problem in some spots, but the green revolution has increased production capabilities to the point where it is conceivable that no one goes hungry in this world. It is an achievable goal.

This sounds oddly like the instructions that came with a flashlight from the dollar store.

Not only am I curious about what type of different sex they practice, but I'm also interested in learning what Gloabal Rights are.
