80,000 Hours: World Problems


This is another shot from the Page, Arizona Slot Canyons. I converted the color picture to black and white. What you can do today with photo editing!

I just discovered a fascinating web site: https://80000hours.org/  In particular, they have a section titled "What are the most pressing world problems?" Now that is a great question! Here are their top five.

  1. Risks from artificial intelligence
  2. Catastrophic pandemics
  3. Nuclear war
  4. Great power conflict
  5. Climate change

The authors also cover how to pick and use a career to help solve some of these problems. I am looking forward to investigating this site in greater detail!
