Underestimating the Challenges of Avoiding a Ghastly Future
An OMEGA Webinar | 1/27/2021
This OMEGA webinar is a discussion on the recently published scientific article entitled Underestimating the Challenges of Avoiding a Ghastly Future.
An international group of 17 leading physical and social scientists, including OMEGA Advisory Board member Joan Diamond, have produced a comprehensive yet concise assessment of the state of civilization, warning that the outlook is more dire and dangerous than is generally understood.
The paper has generated over a thousand media articles and interviews which suggests that public interest is extremely high despite competing news– insurrection, inauguration, and pandemic.
This Ghastly study has been covered in media organizations including CNN World, Reuters, The Guardian, International Business Times, Taipei Times, The Irish Times, and the University of California among many others.
In the near future, we will post reflections and comments from key thought leaders here. Please stay tuned.
