We invite you to consider the following percolating caldron of the seven most critical global challenges that face Millennials, our younger generations, and humanity...

The Seven Greatest Global Adaptive Challenges Facing Our Younger Generations and Humanity Today

Global Challenge 1: Failing to evolve a single global government with legislative, judicial, and enforceable executive powers. If you think deeply about it, you will discover that this first global challenge and critical evolutionary failure of having no unified or truly effective global government IS the single biggest core reason and structural cause of climate destabilization. Its evolutionary absence alone acts to facilitate, escalate, and enable all of the other great global challenges that we currently face (listed farther below).

It bears repeating... the lack of the existence of a single global government with both executive verification powers and executive enforcement powers based on common global laws allows humanity's biggest global challenges listed below to either:

a.) exist at all,

b.) continue to exist or,

c.) to remain perpetually unresolved and/or worsening.

Global Challenge 2: Overpopulation Earth may have only the resource carrying capacity for about 2 billion people. We are near 8 billion racing to 9.4 billion by or before 2050.

Global Challenge 3: Climate Destabilization. Fueled by overpopulation and global warming caused by the carbon and methane greenhouse gas pollution of our atmosphere, we have radically increased the destabilization of our global climate. This increasing average global temperature in both the atmosphere and the oceans further expands the destabilization of our global climate through a domino effect of  reef collapse, desertification, deforestation, coastline loss, wildfires, droughts, superstorms, floods, key productive soils degradation, disruptive growing season changes, and species extinction. Climate destabilization and degradation also increases water pollution from numerous sources such as excessive ocean carbon pollution capture or global warming ocean heat capture or, other climate and climate related pollution sources. 

Global Challenge 4: Resource Depletion. Fueled by overpopulation and climate destabilization, we have increasing food shortages (1 billion people are hungry.). Ocean fish stocks are also suffering catastrophic losses. We will be soon facing energy shortages caused by the early attainment of peak oil. Depleting our many different kinds of Earth quantity-limited, nonrenewable, and even renewable resources to unsustainable levels also increases global poverty by making those essential resources more expensive.

Global Challenge 5: Global Economic Instability. All of the above challenges act in concert to increase global poverty, economic instability, economic inequality (conflicts between rich and poor) and rising national deficits. National deficits are rising in many countries in highly unsustainable ways. These deficits are happening due to  the escalating costs of growing global challenges. Even worse, these ballooning national deficits are moving us closer toward an eventual bursting global financial bubble. Imagine a global financial depression or crisis occurring  as we also try to solve all of these other global challenges. In a new global financial crisis or global depression, there would be even less resources to solve the other global challenges.

Global Challenge 6: Political Instability in Countries with Low Management Capabilities or Low Resource Resilience or High Deficits. All of the above global five challenges plus increased political instability act in concert to further increase the likelihood of more wars, terrorism and political injustice. And finally,

Global Challenge 7: Global Pandemic. As all of the above six other resilience-reducing global challenges get worse, this also increases the probability of a global pandemic. (This is due to existing or new diseases being poorly treated, the mobility and migration of world populations, and the overall deterioration of global health services as the stew of all of the global challenges listed above comes to a global warming amplified boil.)

Of the Seven Great Global Adaptive Challenges Listed Above --- One Global Challenge is CURRENTLY the Single Most Dangerous Keystone Threat Multiplier challenge:

Excluding the challenge of having no real global government (which is an evolutionary structural and developmental issue) climate destabilization is the most dangerous challenge because it is a rapidly escalating keystone threat multiplier in the "arch" of almost all of the other major global challenges. 

It is the most dangerous keystone challenge because:

a.) It is an immediate threat already causing huge global problems and it is rapidly growing worse toward unknown climate tipping points that could end most of the human species. (This article discusses most of the unknown climate tipping points Also see this new article on climate destabilization and its tipping points that has been read over 740,000 times.)

b.) it is both eight keystone amongst major global challenges and the largest single multiplier and amplifier of the already huge problems caused by the other challenges above!

c.) It is also the most immediate and probable meta-trigger for the greatest growing possibility of a chain reaction of whipsawing simultaneous ecological, economic, social and political catastrophes and converging system collapses involving the other great challenges above.  Climate destablization has the greatest possible negative effect on humanity as a whole.

Because of the combined meta-triggering, multiplying, and whipsawing effects of climate destabilization on humanity's other critical global challenges, climate destabilization is also the most likely catalytic source for what could very well turn out to be the greatest tragedy in all of human history!

d.) Even though things currently may be going well in your local or national area, because of the escalating multiple effects of global climate de-stabilization, it can be said that we are now going through a natural evolutionary regression period involving the worsening of most of our greatest global challenges towards an eventual catastrophic convergence that will eventually also destabilize our current local and national areas.

"No existing emergency preparedness program, government, NGO or international organization is even remotely close to being prepared for, or capable of recovering from the convergence, whipsawing, and amplification of most of Earth's greatest global challenges fueled by the keystone threat multiplier of escalating climate destabilization. This would be the 'perfect storm of perfect storms' and the potential death spiral of the human species." --Lawrence Wollersheim

Take a moment to reflect on these ideas and then ask yourself the following question:

"Do you too believe that our current escalating levels of climate destabilization could trigger, multiply and whipsaw almost all of the above other global adaptive challenges listed above into a great catastrophic convergence?"

If you do believe this to be a real possibility, then take some time now to review an honest, positive, and effective new plan that our organization is forwarding to help mitigate and prepare for escalating climate destabilization.
