Global Catastrophic Risks

Affirmation: the existence of humanity is a valuable state of affairs.
Analysis: there are a number of risks with non-negligible probabilities of taking place which threaten the existence of a very high proportion of humanity, and thus bring much higher death rates and cause extreme suffering. These are known as Global Catastrophic Risks (GCRs) and include Artificial Intelligence, antibiotic resistance, climate change and nanotechnology.
Action: we should campaign to influence politics, business and wider society to ensure that the probability of GCRs is reduced as much as possible.
