Is global warming the greatest challenge facing humankind?

No, because I think war is the most important challenge to humankind. War is an important thing to STOP because men and women are dying and being killed. Mothers and children are going to their family member's funerals. Why do people want to have war? I always ask myself this often. Do the men and women who fight from Minnesota die often? YES! My neighbor is a soldier and once last year he got shot! He is okay now though. We need to solve problems in the world peacefully and not fight in a war. I feel sad about war, I really do.
