Looking at this list I would rank them as the following,
1. Feeding the world’s population,
2. global climate change,
3. status of women and children,
4. race and ethnic conflict resolutions,
5. population increase in less developed countries,
6. pollution of air and water, oceans and land,
7. globalization vs. cultural diversity,
8. loss of biodiversity,
9. energy supplies and energy demands,
10. Disparities of wealth – widening gap between wealthy a poor
I put this as my list because I feel that when it comes to money in this world people put that first when other things should come first. I do agree that the gap between the rich and poor does need to decrease but I also believe that people shouldn’t be starving at the same time. I think as a country we need to make sure that our people and our environment are healthy before we go and worry about things like money. In the end if our people and our environment aren’t healthy money isn’t going to be able to solve the issue.
LGBTQ movement is a current issue in the 21st century is not on this list that I believe is very important to today’s society. In todays society people should have the freedom to express themselves without having the feared of being judge of who they are. This is the United States and we preach this whole idea about freedom but there are people in todays society who aren’t free to be themselves. This is such an important issue in todays society because there needs to be a change. Nobody should have the fear of being left out and not allowed to be who they truly are.

I would rank the issues as the following:
1. feeding the world’s population
2. status of women and children
3. disparities of wealth
4. race and ethnic conflict resolution
5. population increase in less developed countries
6. pollution of air, water
7. energy supplies/demands
8. loss of biodiversity
9. global climate change
10. globalization vs cultural diversity
I ranked the issues in this order because I feel feeding the world’s population is a big issue that has been going on for so long but hasn’t been resolved. I think the people living on earth are slightly more important than the environment they live in.
The one issue I would add to this list is the ongoing wars happening in other parts of the world such as the Middle East. Innocent civilians fear for their lives everyday and are being attacked by others – some even losing their lives. It has been going on far too long and their lives are just as important as anyone else’s. It is also very unfair that many countries do not want people from the Middle East and other war filled countries to enter their territory.
