Existential Threats for Humankind:
Climate change is not the only threat that endangers humankind as a whole. Think about asteroid impacts, nuclear war or risks from alien or artificial intelligence. Risk researcher Lars Gerhold and Karlheinz Steinmüller have analysed twenty existential threats in a recent paper. Eight experts provided their assessment with respect to the degree of uncertainty and options to prevent the final catastrophe. The paper appeared in March 2021 in the online journal Zeitschrift für Zukunftsforschung.
