    Which event poses the greatest threat to mankind's future?

    What action threatens the future of mankind the most? Threatens our prosperity, lifestyle, health, happiness and even our survival on this planet?

    Is it military aggression or war?
    An emergence of a dominant world political structure?
    Large scale economic failures?
    A dominant one nation superpower?
    Attention placed on the global environment?

    There are a lot of potentially dangerous paths, but which path in your opinion, will have the most negative impact on our lives in the years to come?

    None, the greatest threat to mankind is an ever expansion of government which does nothing but steal, kill and lie.

    Probably the proliferation of nuclear and biological weapons.

    Everything else on the list could be bad for a lot of people, but there's nothing that has the same potential to destroy all life.

    The greatest threat in the coming decades will be the proliferation of nuclear weapons technology. A close second is the proliferation of ballistic missile technology.

    Short sighted, all of you. The greatest threat is the proliferation of the wrong ideas.

    None of the above. The greatest threat is the proliferation of WMDs which fall into the hands of terrorists...specifically bio-engineered diseases.

    I'd think it'd be caused because of a breakdown of relations in the Middle East, or terrorists getting one of the ABC's (Atomic, Biological, Chemical).

    That can cripple, not kill humanity. In regard to the OP, though, it could change our lifestyle, prosperity etc.

    How do you define threat? Are we talking the end to all human life? Or something more like as we know it?
