I wonder if we could look back 50, 100, 150, and 200 years ago, what most intelligent people would think the biggest existential risks were to humanity -- and if the current fears will last 50, 100, etc. years into the future. And also it would be interesting to consider whether worrying and "doing something" about those fears amounted to anything positive.
