Due to the ineffective response of Covid-19 from global governments, now during the second year of this epidemic in the ‘Doomsday Clock’, there is just 100 seconds left to midnight. According to The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists’ (BAS), along with climate change, nuclear stress and global epidemics have brought us closer to the apocalypse than ever before.
Maintaining last year’s grim record means that the keepers of the perceived threat of the global apocalypse have not calmed down in the past 12 months. He warns that the corona virus epidemic has taught how countries without preparedness and willingness can overcome this crisis.
However, scientists have little hope after Joe Biden becomes president because Biden may reintroduce the Paris Agreement and remain a member of the World Health Organization. Rachel Bulson, CEO and president of The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists’ (BAS), states that governments around the world carried out their responsibility in the era of the corona virus, ignoring scientific advice, not cooperating to communicate effectively, As a result, she failed to protect the health and welfare of her citizens.
Robert Bulzner, scientist of The Bulletin + of the Atomic Scientists’ (BAS), said that in 1949, when Russia tested the first atomic bomb RDS-1 and a rapid nuclear arms race began in the world, then It was 180 seconds from midnight. He said that after four years in the year 1953 it came down to 120 seconds. This was the period in the world when the US first tested thermonuclear device in 1952 and the Cold War was at its peak.
This watch has been working continuously since the year 1947, which gives information about how much there is a possibility of nuclear attack on the world. According to scientists, the needle fork has been reported to be the most stressful place in the history of 73 years.
Rachel Bronson says that now we are telling how many seconds are left for the world to be destroyed. According to the Doomsday Clock, the shorter the time it takes to become midnight, the closer the world is to the danger of nuclear and climate crisis.
