In The Precipice (2020), philosopher and ethicist Toby Ord examines the risks that threaten the human species. Humanity is at a pivotal stage: we must take essential steps to guarantee our survival and, more importantly, our future. The existential risks that limit humanity’s potential include asteroids, supervolcanic eruptions, stellar explosions, nuclear war, climate change, pandemics, and out-of-control artificial intelligence. A thorough strategy must be put in place quickly to ensure our readiness for when these risks manifest.
