In our recent show about Outrageous Optimism https://youtu.be/R91LqaxqfpI, we discussed how one bold idea — one outrageously optimistic idea — may do more to end suffering from disease than anything that’s come before.
We begin by taking a look at things that can wipe us out:
Global Catastrophic Risk https://bit.ly/1RdSHle
Mineral resource exhaustion
Experimental technology accident
Warfare and mass destruction
World population and agricultural crisis
Natural climate change
Can we address these threats with audacious action? (Or more to the point — can we address them with anything else?)
