The Planet’s Top Problems On a Single Page?

You can test yourself and see if you agree. . .

    (Something appropriate to put up on the first day of the Donald Trump administration?)

Are all the urgent problems of the world on the single page in the image above? . .

. .   Some sorts of problem are, of course, subcomponents of other ones.  Did we get the major categories to include everything? . ..

Comments are welcome.

And here is a game you can play. .  

. . . If you randomly pick any two of the problems, you can probably, without burning out too many brain cells, figure out how both are related. . . (. . .  for instance these two) What do you think?  You might want to extemporize about that in the form of a comment.

Or you might want to say what’s most important to you.

In order to let people find this page more efficiently when they Google, the list below was used to make the image above.
