ABSTRACT. This paper offers a short discussion of existential risks, risks that threaten to cause the extinction of Earth-originating intelligent life or to permanently and drastically curtail its future potential. It argues that existential risks deserve serious attention, and that many of the biggest existential risks are anthropogenic, i.e. arise in some way from human activity.
