Menos de dois minutos para o fim do mundo

By Jordi Bou

January 20, 2022 - O Relógio do Fim do Mundo, que indica a proximidade do aniquilamento do nosso planeta, está a 100 segundos da meia-noite – o mais próximo que alguma vez esteve – pelo terceiro ano consecutivo.

With war looming between Russia and Ukraine, ongoing climate disaster and the coronavirus pandemic, the panel decided to keep the minute hand at its most dangerous position since the concept began in 1947.

Each year, the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, a nonprofit group that sets the clock, decides whether the events of the previous year pushed humanity closer to or farther from destruction.

The idea began in 1945, when scientists working on the Manhattan Project – developing the world’s first nuclear weapons – created the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists of Chicago (BAS) to warn humanity of the dangers of nuclear war. Two years later, BAS launched its Doomsday Clock.
