25 Planks

On this page, you can choose a ‘plank’ — that is, an essay on how specific global threats can be stopped — from the list below. (The majority of these essays were written in late 2018/early 2019, and as such have not been updated except in the case of typos or other errors.)

Please click on the title of your choice to open the document which you want to read. (Most planks will also have one or more “Read more” buttons.)

You may notice that we no longer have comments activated on the “25 planks” pages. Instead, we are now consolidating reader comments on any of the seven, more comprehensive, Overview pages, which you can find on the website’s left-hand sidebar (if viewing on a desktop, laptop, or tablet computer) or as the third box from the top (if viewing from a smartphone or similar small device).
