LISTEN:


The human race really is worth saving, you know. And it will take some work – most importantly, making global systems that can deal with our global threats. These include climate, environment, pandemics, migration, technology, the world economy, nuclear weapons and more. No one country can solve these on its own. We’re all in this together. We need a stronger United Nations and other systems that help the world cooperate and coordinate on these important issues.
