Foreign Policy Journal just published a special issue centered on the idea of the “Top 100 Global Thinkers.”
As I was reading through my copy, I noticed that a significant number were chosen/noteworthy for public health, global health, climate change, or other environmental issues. While there is overlap (and a likelihood of “classification bias” by me) my review finds the following:
1.) 10 persons noteworthy for public health thought and initiatives…
2.) 5 persons for global health…
3.) 6 persons for climate change…
4.) 2 persons for other environmental issues.
Perhaps this might be of use/interest…or at least a diversion from H1N1. Additionally, several persons are further profiled on what they are reading, who they think are the “best thinkers,” what their best/worst ideas were, etc.
