In my role as SME to the FBI and industry, I provide advice on bioterrorism, pandemic preparedness, EMP etc.  Here's a very good article that summarizes some of the risks we, as a global society, are facing: 

https://www.politico.com/news/magazine/2020/05/07/experts-knew-pandemic-was-coming-what-they-fear-next-238686

I go back & forth on what I think is the "worst" scenario....I was yelling about another SARS corona virus outbreak since the last one (2003), and we always have rogue nations like North Korea, usual suspects like China & Russia, and nature to worry about. 

My big concern has been a massive solar flare (aka Carrington Event) that wipes out the electrical grids of all nations. COVID-19 sure stinks, but imagine losing all of your power = no water, no fuel, no access to food etc.  I've read some of the scenarios & they aren't pretty. 

Be safe, Chuck

My main concern is 

CLIMATE CHANGE

it is here and now...... 

But of course the only cure for that is the

 SLATE WIPER.....

Get rid of 3/4 of the world's population.......

Climate change is a one-way train. There is no "cure". The loss of global dimming due to collapse of industrial civilization will ensure that. I've said for years that the breakdown of the biosphere and decline of energy and other resources is being hidden by the fog of politics and war.
