Is global warming the greatest challenge facing humankind?
No, global warming isn't the hardest thing because it can be stopped. I think man's aggression is the most complex thing for human kind to solve, because people keep having wars, starting terrorism and we're always trying to stop it.
Global warming will only take out the people who live by the coast. Man's aggression is all around the world including the coasts. We don't know how to stop it because in every country, there is man's aggression.
"Some problems are so complex that you have to be highly intelligent and well informed just to be undecided about them." - Laurence J. Peter
Man's aggression is like a video game, once you kill a wave of bad guys, another wave comes.
