About the "Questionnaire on Environmental Problems and the Survival of Humankind"

The Environmental Doomsday Clock
The realization of sustainable development has never been more necessary than today for humankind to continue to prosper and develop. It requires us to resolve global environmental problems, in particular global warming, and calls for a collective effort on the part of human beings to gather their deepest wisdom. Since the Earth Summit, which was held in Rio de Janeiro in 1992, the Asahi Glass Foundation has conducted an annual survey—"Questionnaire on Environmental Problems and the Survival of Humankind"—comprised of questions to experts worldwide knowledgeable on the subject. The questionnaire solicits their knowledge and diverse opinions and publishes the results in a report.
