I'm glad I'm not the only one with the opinion that global warming is low on the threat to humanity list.

Humans directly harming humans does way more damage than GW ever could.

Disease harms humans more than GW ever will.

Poverty harms people more than GW.

Heck, AI poses a greater existential threat to humanity than GW, and I think that's a long shot.

What really worries me is that there is still enough nukes to completely eradicate humans several times over, and some of them are held by crazy leaders. After that, I worry that biological warfare will become cheap, easy, and untraceable. Any crazy could eventually possess the ability to harm millions.

GW is an extremely small and unfortunate outcome of humanity's psychopathy. Until psychopathy is resolved, GW will remain as a distraction.
