The Environmental Doomsday Clock

Each year the Foundation conducts a survey of the sense of crisis felt by respondents about the continuance of the human race as the global environment continues to deteriorate, gauging the responses with the time expressed on the hands of the Environmental Doomsday Clock created by the Foundation.
