THE DOOMSDAY Clock press conference has determined just how close we are to the end of the world.
The Doomsday Clock is inherently not optimistic, but Bill Nye urges everyone to stay positive about the state of the world.
“You guys we can do this,” he urged.
Nye said that it starts with voting and individuals can make an impact.
When asked if the tide is turning on climate change, Bill Nye said that it was “turning-ish.”
Nye said presidential candidates aren’t discussing the issue but added the way to combat climate change is to vote in elections.
A slew of experts in science and technology met this morning to discuss the crises facing humanity.
The following are some key takeaways they emphasized:
Policymakers are moving forward on climate change, but action hasn’t been taken on a global level
Climate change impacts each country differently
Russia, North Korea, and Iran pose nuclear threats
AI presents a challenge for governance in the private sector
A “new nuclear arms race” is looming due to crises in Ukraine and Gaza
The clock has not moved since last year, remaining at 90 seconds
