Default The Bulletin Online: Global Security News & Analysis

www.theBulletin.org (Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists)

This is the website for “The Bulletin Online“ where you can find the “Doomsday” clock.

The site promotes Global Security News & Analysis with very professionally written daily articles; often by world-class researchers.

The newsletter can be delivered by e-mail directly to your computer inbox with only your name and e-mail address as a requirement (you may specify text or html).

Keep informed on important matters concerning global security and environmental threats to the planet Earth.

Following is a portion of the lengthy Board of the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists Statement (Bold emphasis added by Catalyst):
17 January 2007
We stand at the brink of a second nuclear age. Not since the first atomic bombs were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki has the world faced such perilous choices. North Korea’s recent test of a nuclear weapon, Iran’s nuclear ambitions, a renewed U.S. emphasis on the military utility of nuclear weapons, the failure to adequately secure nuclear materials, and the continued presence of some 26,000 nuclear weapons in the United States and Russia are symptomatic of a larger failure to solve the problems posed by the most destructive technology on Earth.

As in past deliberations, we have examined other human-made threats to civilization. We have concluded that the dangers posed by climate change are nearly as dire as those posed by nuclear weapons. The effects may be less dramatic in the short term than the destruction that could be wrought by nuclear explosions, but over the next three to four decades climate change could cause drastic harm to the habitats upon which human societies depend for survival.

This deteriorating state of global affairs leads the Board of Directors of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists--in consultation with a Board of Sponsors that includes 18 Nobel laureates--to move the minute hand of the “Doomsday Clock” from seven to five minutes to midnight.
