IEMA (the Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment) has reacted to the news that the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists have decided to move the Doomsday Clock from 100 to 90 seconds to midnight - 10 seconds closer to oblivion.

Sarah Mukherjee MBE, CEO of IEMA, said:

“The clock remaining perilously close to midnight should remind everyone that we face severe threats to human existence.

“Climate breakdown and the biodiversity emergency are both getting worse.

“We need governments and organisations to raise their levels of ambition and implementation if we’re going to have a chance of solving these problems.

“This must include providing people with access to educational and training opportunities that can translate to highly paid and highly skilled jobs, to help deliver a sustainable future.”
