Consider future catastrophes

READING the reports marking the start of the First World War, what haunts me is the feeling we should also take a look at our own time and ask whether there are any "avoidable catastrophes" happening now.

Of course Gaza, Ukraine and the Middle East are prime examples, but we also have creeping catastrophes such as climate change, pollution and the death of the oceans. Maybe we should consider the catastrophes of the future.
