Two Minutes to Midnight: The Growing Risk of Global Apocalypse

March 19, 2018

On today's Global Exchange Podcast, we take an extended look at the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists' Doomsday Clock, which was set at two minutes to midnight earlier this year. Join Colin in conversation with Rachel Bronson, President and CEO of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, as they discuss the growing threat of nuclear apocalypse, the history of the Doomsday Clock as a measurement for nuclear catastrophe, how the West can respond to escalating threats surrounding nuclear weapons, and if Canada can play a role in facilitating an international dialogue on denuclearization.
