Top Ten Problems In the World Today

The Top Ten

1 Poverty

We are pretty close to eradicating extreme poverty, but it's only because it remains concentrated and increasing in some war-torn African countries and is on the decline in Asia

The homeless people can't just get up and get a job, most jobs have standards that they aren't able to reach, like a home, experience, and sometimes, even, a car...

Individual situation all need complete investigation and help to get better!

Lucky extrem poverty rates have droped from 1.6 billion to around 500 million but we still have a long way to go

2 War and Terrorism

What is the point of these wars? Can't we all respect each others beliefs and live in one world peacefully?

I think that wars shouldn't keep going om becouse I think everyone should live life and everyone should do what they want to do

Countries start wars and people die and more people are in poverty

Private Companies
Modern Banking.

No. Terrorists are. Religious radicals are. Politicians just find a way to make it worse. But they are not the sole instigators of this problem. Get your facts right - ObscuredBeauty

3 Climate Change

It's 2020 now. Look what's happened because of humanity! Australia is on fire! The endangered list is now 41,416! You know how big that number is, that's a really big number! People think climate change doesn't exist, yeah, people only believe things when they cause problems. Maybe people will believe climate change exists if every country is on fire. Australia is on fire, something will be next if we don't stop it. It doesn't even have to be big, like not driving a car for Pete's sake! You wanna die? Be my guest! But don't come crying to me when the world is on fire because you didn't care.

Climate change is going to cause a mass extinction, of course it's a problem

I don't wanna die before I can even live, the planet can only take so much

Some are still ignoring this problem and it could be the death of us

4 Drug Abuse

People always being out of homeostasis clouds our judgment. EVERY drug. This includes coffee, prescriptions, even herbs.

Nothing wrong with taking. It's your own choice. Taking alcohol is just as worse and yet its sold everywhere. Taking sugar is also just as harmful and addictive yet it's marketed towards children which could very well be responsible to the high obesity rate in the US. Do your research about drugs, they aren't that harmful. Cheese is responsible for causing heart problems and diabetes, yet you don't see any ads telling you you should avoid eating it.

A VERY terrible problem

Who cares! If people wanna kill themselves with drugs, let them. It doesn't affect me.

5 Disease

we should as stay healthy and not get sick a lot of kids get sick to get out of school but if they get sick everyone else could get sick too just because they wanted to get out of something they didn't want to do

Even simple bacterial infections will soon become deadly again...we are down to only a handful of antibiotics that still be honest I'd be less scared of nuclear war.

This is worse than racism, sexism and dabbing.

Diseases are a disaster!

6 Animal Abuse

Animals WEREN'T created for torturing and all of the other abusive things that are inflicted on them. Animals are here to comfort us, to be there for us when no one else is, to help us through our hardships, to help us know what an honor it is to be able to enjoy the life that has been given to us, to appreciate the world around us. Instead of abusing and killing animals including wild animals, we should appreciate them and thank god for creating them because without animals this world would not be worth living in. Animals are understanding, kind, gentle, beautiful, and loving creatures. They do what they need to in order to survive just like people do. That's also why we need to stop cutting down the rain forests, killing endangered animals, killing any kind of animal for that matter. Because if animals start going extinct then there will be no home, no world for us to live in because all of the beauty will be gone. So WE ALL NEED TO STOP ABUSING ANIMALS FROM ALL AROUND THE WORLD ...more

Animals have feelings! Not just humans! Animals feel pain and domestic animals can't even take care of themselves! You know why? Because they need a human to take care of them, they're not wild animals! No animal deserves abuse and if you think that's okay, go to hell. I have to say animals are way better than humans. They care for us, they don't cause problems, but look at us! We're the reason the earth is dying. We're the reason animals are going extinct. We're the reason murder exists. Do you abuse an animal? Go to hell you disgusting awful human. Thank you to everyone who agrees that animals shouldn't get abused. You guys are angels but sadly not everyone is.

why hurt the things that help us more then anything God made animals to provide for but most people use that as an advantage

I accidentally saw slaughter house footage and it was disgusting, horrible and morally wrong.

7 Murder

why kill the people that your here with God gave you people so that your not lonely but people prefer to kill there company

If you manage to get away from this, there is god still watching, one thought I was crazy, I'm telling what my mind tells me

Sexism hurts people verbally. Murder literally kills people, so murder should be above sexism.

Here are the examples:

December 10, 2019: 6 people were killed in a hate crime involved shooting in Jersey City, New Jersey.

2/14/2018: 17 people shot dead by Nikolas Cruz in Parkland, Florida

June 12, 2016: Omar Mateen shoots down 49 individuals at a Florida LGBT nightclub before the police shot him dead.

January 8, 2011: 6 victims dead including the judge at a Safeway store in Tuscon, Arizona.

8 Racism

We should have learnt our lesson but we clearly haven't. Racism is awful. We should all have equal rights to do and say things.

How are we still doing this, people are equal and deserve equal rights? How is that so hard to understand. And we have to be active about it.

I believe that all people no mater what race should be treated equally

This is one of the bad things happening around us, if we do not stop racism, we would have a big problem to our world, I certainly hope that everyone could just please accept people for who they are and what their beliefs are.

9 Pollution

pollution is like a virus it spreads and lots of people don't care

The world is basically getting murdered slowly by us humans! Do something! Don't just stand there and do nothing! We will be low on resources, that means, barely even food, etc. SAVE EARTH!

Pollution is basically what caused global warming. That's why we need to save the planet. For everyone who thinks global warming is fake, learn more about pollution.

If we don't save the enviorment, there will be no drugs to abuse (some drugs are made from plants) we will have to deal with NO population, everyone will be in poverty, and all the other things on this list will get ten times worst. We will all die along with the other living things, and the earth will become uninhabitable.

10 Population Growth

We're running out of space for everyone and its causing problems

most teens get pregnant and those babies make more babies and that's a problemthta they need to solve

Virtually every other problem listed would be lessened or totally solved if the population drops by 2/3. If the population keeps growing, none of them will be solved no matter what we do.

The emphasis on the "problem" of decreasing fertility is scary. We don't need more people in the world. Even national parks are already noisy and crowded.

The Contenders

11 Global Warming

Ice? Whats that? Let it snow? I haven't seen a white Christmas in 13 years. The cold doesn't bother me any more because there is no cold.

Yeah I remember hearing about the ice melting in the north pole area in science class probably gets smaller every year

People don't believe in it, there was this poll on this website asking if you believe in global warming and 24 percent said no and comments were saying how global warming is bs

This is affecting the whole world.

12 Sexism

Sexism is not just being targeted to women, but men too. I have recently watched a social experiment consisting of a woman abusing a man & people just sitting there & laughing, but when the man stood up for himself, the same people previously laughing then got up & started yelling at him for standing up for himself. It sickened me. I do support equal rights for both genders but the feminazis have pushed it to far. They are pretty much a man-hating group at this point. There were videos of a woman accusing a man of sexual harassment because he said "hello". There was also another one of a woman yelling "rape" after a police officer arrested her after she refused to get out of a car. Sexism affects both genders. It must stop.

I want to be allowed to do things and have a life outside of the kitchen, thank you very much. Women are just as important.

It's bad for both men and women, but extreme feminists should stop. I think the problem is in more developed countries like the US, the UK etc. etc. it is less of a problem but in some countries there is hardly any feminist movement at all and the women there need a voice.

This should be higher than racism. In some places women don't have even the most basic rights.

13 Raping

Do I need to raven explain this one it is so wrong no matter the excuse

It's one of the hardest things to have to live with after it happens to you, and knowing that the person who ruined your life is living like nothing happened while you try to figure out how to feel normal again.

Completely sick at the thought of this horrible crime existing in our society. We need to punish those who do this for them to feel the extent of the pain they put their victims through.

One of the most sickening problems with this world today. It’s sad many people had to experience this sort of thing happen to them.

14 Pedophiles

My uncle said he would give me candy...

Yes they are a problem

Who wants candy


15 Unemployment

Very difficult problem, how you live without money

Id know all about that youtube was not nice to me and it took many moons of hard work to reach those high note lets just says I was that guy in the barrel a couple of times too many. go check out my youtube videos please @burtothebestoutube- russel

Those people should get serious help to pay bills.

I need a jon

16 Feminism

It's so wrong when people judge woman on what they eat, wear talk and the way they breath people are so cruel I'm Ashamed of how this world has turned out!

Not to be rude but most feminist are like "Oh we want the advantages men have but not the disadvantages" that itself is stupid.

Not all working women will become pregnant.
There is a pay gap you just want women to be lower class.

Modern feminism is just a problem now, not a solution

17 Liberalism

I am part liberal, but some people have just pushed it. All I want is peace across America, which of course is not possible.

Modern-day liberalism is a cancer.

Looks like you guys watch too much Fox News...

Liberalism is the cause of most of the other issues listed on here

18 Religious Fundamentalists

Most religous Fundamentalists don't even obey their scriptures completly, otherwise we would have hundreds of Jesus', so they need to calm down and stop hating on people who are different. And people don't know about every religon out their so how is someone supposed to worship your god when they don't know of their existance.

They will react with violence to people that challenge their views. They spread more hate than love.

They are the profound evil of our times

Why is this happening?

19 Totalitarianism
20 Zionism

USrael is the main reason (maybe only) for all the wars in the world right now...!

Zionism? you mean the only country in the whole area with actual democracy? , you mean the one constantly attacked by all neighboring country's and has to constantly defend its citizens and then answer back to all the garbage they get from the media? I'm muslim and I think israel is the only civil country in the middle east.

Me when I read the lord's scripture, nnut

Stealing others homes and killing them? never mind.

21 Severe Income Disparity

If we maintain a capitalist society without redistributing wealth then we will run through earths resources.

Causing homelessness and suffering in the USA while so many shower themselves with unneccessary luxuries. Indulging in a little pleasure is fine and healthy but excess is more the norm even among those who consider themselves righteous.

22 Refugees

Refugees around the world need help.

They need our help to survive

Refugess should be aloud in the United States, especially if there is a disease or war going on in their country.

Refugees are the products of war

23 Violence

Why is dabbing above this?

Can't imagine that people like violence.


24 Child Abuse

Horrible. My friend told me about this TV series or movie, I don't know, that's a true story about how a mom and her boyfriend tortured a child.

You abusing a child verbally and physically is wrong and is affecting their lives on a daily. Plus what is the point of abusing a child?

Child abuse is the worst it was the worst when daddyofive was on youtube abusing his kids

If you are Hurting children than you are monsters

25 Youth Oppression

I don't know what that means

We need to be able to do more things, we are the future

This is important
