Sure, as a list of problem areas we face, this is a good list. But as a list of 'engineering challenges' it is largely useless.

On some points they have pretty much right ('make solar power economical' for example) but in others the 'challenges' are either badly defined ("engineer better medicines") or not actually engineering challenges at all ('prevent nuclear terror' for example).
