In the annual report released by the World Economic Forum the the top 10 risks facing our world were released.

It wasn't cyber attacks, failure of government, or even terrorist attacks that took the top spot, but rather it was extreme weather.

Here are the top 4:
  1. Extreme weather events
  2. Large-scale involuntary migration
  3. Natural disasters
  4. Terrorist attacks
Extreme weather and climate events are events that: typically don't happen very frequently, such as droughts or floods that have historically occurred on average only once in 100 years. vary from "the norm" in severity or duration, like heat waves. have severe impacts, like hurricanes.
