Global Aging Rejuvenation 10 Years is Worth $367 Trillion

The global economic benefit of successfully reversing aging (the Wolverine case) is analyzed in a peer reviewed paper in Nature. This hypothetical alternative to the Peter Pan (slowing aging) scenario is a reversal of aging. Biological damage is repaired rather than slowed. They name it after the Marvel character Wolverine and his daughter X-23 who both possess a healing factor enabling body tissue to be regenerated. Recent advances have shown that such regeneration is possible in mice and humans.

They assume a one-time intervention at age 65 that rewinds an individual’s biological clock back to a specific age.

They estimate an individual’s willingness to pay (WTP) and value of statistical life (VSL). VSL places a monetary value on the gains from longer life, better health, and changes in the rate at which we age.

They calculate taht a slowdown in aging that increases life expectancy by 1 year is worth US$38 trillion and by 10 years US$367 trillion.

The treatments could be re-applied at later ages but this is not calculated.

A World Safe From Firestorms is a World Safe from Nuclear Winter

Nuclear winter is the theory that severe and prolonged global climatic cooling will happen after a large-scale nuclear war. This assumes that fires can inject soot into the stratosphere. This would block some direct sunlight from reaching the surface of the Earth. This would then lead to widespread crop failure and famine. Nuclear-winter scenario researchers…
