The paper discusses how the environment became a global concern at the end of the 20th century. The paper also discusses the newfound ability to interact with people instantaneously around the world using the Internet relay chat (IRC). The paper then discusses a change from the end of the century that is not positive, namely the fact that progress in eliminating hunger is slow. The paper quotes the report "Are we Really Reducing Poverty?" by Vandemoortele that argues that global poverty figures under-estimate global poverty and over-estimate poverty reduction. The paper concludes that the major implication of today's global world is that people of all backgrounds and cultures are going to have to get along with each other.
