Humanity continues to face an ‘unprecedented level of danger’ according to the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists.

That’s why they have kept the metaphorical ‘Doomsday Clock’ at 90 seconds to midnight, which represents a global catastrophe.

Time ticked closer to midnight in 2023 from 100 seconds, largely due to the war between Russia and Ukraine in 2022.
