Doomsday Clock Update 2024

Join the Climate Emergency Forum as it discusses the 2024 Doomsday Clock update by the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, an organization founded in 1945 by Albert Einstein and Manhattan Project scientists after the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

This video was recorded on February 6th, 2024, and published on February 25th, 2024.

Charles describes how the Bulletin has continuously highlighted global security risks from nuclear weapons, climate change, genetic engineering, and now artificial intelligence. The Doomsday Clock remains at 90 seconds to midnight, indicating a critical global situation.

Peter underscores the urgency of the situation, pointing out the alarming rate of atmospheric CO2 concentration increase and the escalating extreme weather events due to greenhouse gas emissions. He expresses concern about the lack of decisive action from leaders to address these pressing issues.

Paul echoes Peter’s sentiments, emphasizing the catastrophic consequences of unchecked climate change and nuclear threats, stressing that we are not in uncharted territory but heading towards a climate catastrophe. Paul adds the potential loss of democracy in the U.S. as an unaccounted for risk.
