Nuclear war, extreme weather top list of 2018 threats in global survey

Nuclear war, cyberattacks and environmental disasters top the list of man-made threats to global stability in 2018, according to a survey of 1,000 international leaders from business, government, education and service groups.

Another global financial meltdown, more likely in past years, has ebbed because of economic expansions underway worldwide, the annual World Economic Forum's Global Risks Report found. It was released Wednesday in advance of the forum's meeting in Davos, Switzerland, next week.

Mother nature topped the most significant risks facing the world for a second year in a row, the survey showed. They include natural disasters and extreme weather events that human-caused climate change may be abetting.
