10. Hunger, war, disease, pollution
9.7 million children under 5 died, globally. I don't know how many died in places like N Korea and Myanmarr, but don't forget to question why Halliburton can do business with Myanmarr but we can't figure out how to insist the countries provide basic human rights.
