Our survival is seriously threatened

Firstly, the environment is being damaged at unsustainable rate.

Secondly, the probability of an unprecedented global catastrophe keeps growing

We are not prepared for a global disaster. We might only have a short notice1 so preparing when we the threat is imminent will be too late.

  1. For example, a war can start any time – Pearl Harbor was also not announced. Terrorists can strike anytime – we were not expecting 9/11 either. Global crisis can come as abruptly and unexpectedly as the one in 2008. A deadly meteor can appear with only two weeks notice – even with current technology we can’t monitor all space objects large like the one that eliminated dinosaurs until they come relatively close to Earth. Virus can mutate and start spreading as abruptly as SARS or swine flu did.
