Doomsday clock remains at 100 seconds to midnight, scientists warn

Global News published this video item, entitled “Doomsday clock remains at 100 seconds to midnight, scientists warn” – below is their description.

The symbolic Doomsday Clock remained at 100 seconds to midnight on Wednesday, as University of Chicago-based scientists from Bulletin of The Atomic Scientists warned the world is dangerously close to devastation.

The time was unchanged from 2020, when scientists from the organization cited concerns over nuclear proliferation and climate change as factors in setting the clock to its most dire time since the Cold War.

President and CEO of Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, Rachel Bronson, said last year’s statement anticipated the denial of COVID-19 and refusal of political leaders to work together, which has led to 2.16 million coronavirus deaths worldwide.

Alexia Kapralos has the story.

Climate Change is the name commonly given to the notion that the Earth is undergoing a changing climate as a result of human activity, including notable leaders, scientists and naturalists including Sir David Attenborough.
