100 seconds to midnight is what the 2021 report is saying. Reading between the lines, I see scientists who are concerned that governments and lay people alike are not respecting science. Disinformation is rampant. Nuclear weapons programs and global warming are bad enough.
But now we have Covid-19 to fight, and we aren't even doing that good a job of pushing it to the sidelines.
