For the first time ever, the World Economic Forum (WEF) has declared environmental issues as the world’s top long-term risks. The international organization isn’t just recognizing the deadly, terrifying climate crisis as a huge global threat, though.

The report also recognizes the power the youth hold, and how the new wave of climate activism poses a threat to the bogus capitalist establishment—you know, the people showing up in Davos for WEF’s annual event next week—that’s ultimately at the heart of the climate crisis.

The Global Risks Report polls hundreds of experts around the world on the biggest threats to the world order. This year’s version lists extreme weather, climate action failure, natural disasters, biodiversity loss, and human-made environmental disasters as the world’s top five risks in terms of likelihood. In recent years, environmental issues have come to make up the majority on this list, but data fraud and cyberattacks have also made the list of risks. But this year’s report shows the world is finally at a point where nothing is more dangerous than the failure to act on climate.

“The political landscape is polarized, sea levels are rising and climate fires are burning,” Borge Brende, World Economic Forum president, said in a statement. “This is the year when world leaders must work with all sectors of society to repair and reinvigorate our systems of cooperation, not just for short-term benefit but for tackling our deep-rooted risks.”
