10 Issues for the 21st Century
other student entries #1
The issue that I feel is most important would be Global Climate Change. I ranked the issues based on the amount of people that would be affected. Issues that affect everyone globally are placed at the top of the list with each receding rank a little less important globally than the previous. The reason why Global Climate Change is ranked #1 is because the Earth would be destroyed/become uninhabitable in a short amount of time if this issue continues to remain unresolved.
An 11th paradigm I felt wasn’t included would be the increase in life expectancy for almost every country. This would rank below #4 on my list above.

The number #1 issue energy supplies and energy demands – population is increasing by the seconds and more…more energy is harness from natural resources or man made. Eventually this resources will affect humanities overall living and lifestyle. My 11th ranking issue to add is Water security – water is the main source of life.
