There are many current global issues affecting the well-being of humankind, including environmental degradation and the spread of disease. Economic growth is bringing both promise and peril, and the gap between rich and poor is increasing. In addition, the world population is growing, and there are concerns about the quality of food, fresh water, housing, education, and medical care. There are also religious, ethnic, and racial conflicts that threaten both the integrity of human society and individual freedoms. Terrorism is an ever-present threat, and new and re-emerging technologies offer both promise and danger.
