What do all of you think will be the greatest challenges facing humanity in the next decades?

I am just curious what the people on here think.

I think the depletion of natural resources will be the big one. I also think though that most of the future challenges are increasingly interrelated and hard to separate from each other.

I think it's clearly a large-scale conflict between China and the USA

Yeah, I think that its getting very tense between USA and other nations. That could be a growing problem...

i believe that a conflict between them is unlikely now a days, those countries are still very dependent on each other economically, engage in an armed conflict provides only desavantages for both of them.

Ethics concerning robots if they ever become sentient. I'm actually kinda afraid of that one.

The quest of power might led us to a third world war. Other than this, the way young generation is being brought up, loss of moral values and ethics will be a huge problem. See, it keeps everything in place.

I think religious extremism and attempts to grab power by non-state actors will be the biggest challange because countries can resolve issues by diplomacy but handling non-state actors is very tough.

I think getting along with each other might continue to be the big one.

From the ratio of participants answering correctly challenges on this forum, I think that the greatest challenge facing the humanity, is an excess of mathematicians compared to a shortage of physicists:)
