Peter Sloot was invited to write a short opinion piece on what he sees as global challenges and what gives him hope as a research professor. Peter writes that the global loss of nature and ecology is a threat, and that science is hardly given time to reason about the human role, but that the decision of Singapore to develop computer models to better understand the effects of policy making is a glimmer of hope that policy makers realize that humanity needs help from (computational) science.
