Support the Bulletin
One good reason to support the Bulletin: People listen. Policy makers, scientists, and citizens all over the world rely on the Bulletin—and our signature Doomsday Clock—for clarity about complex threats to humanity from the misuse and abuse of powerful technologies in a violent world.
From a newsletter founded and distributed by a group of scientists who had worked on the Manhattan Project, the Bulletin has become a 501(c)(3) nonprofit publishing and communications organization. We serve an international network of scientists and experts who continue to publish independent reports and analysis on the potentially destructive technologies they work with every day—including nuclear weapons, nuclear energy, and biotechnology. The Bulletin helps translate and actively distribute their work in order to demystify the facts for a non-expert audience, raise scientific literacy among policy makers and the main stream media, and empower citizens to participate in determining issues of national and global security.
The Bulletin is a powerful antidote to the 'dumbing down' of marketable content that underestimates the intelligence and receptivity of policy makers and the reading public."
Generous donors and subscribers support our coverage of science and security issues, which won the 2007 National Magazine Award for general excellence, our online digital publishing service, which was the 2009 runner-up for the Lumity Technology Leadership Award for creative use of technology in a nonprofit environment.
Tax-deductible contributions make it possible for the Bulletin to limit the cost of this resource to journalists, researchers, educators, and subscribers. More than 80 percent of the Bulletin's revenues are directed into program areas to support the writers, scientists, experts, and editors who produce and distribute the information needed by policy makers and citizens.
Confusion is dangerous. Ignorance is worse.
Your contributions have an impact on the Bulletin's capacity to clarify choices and consequences on issues of human survival and global sustainability.
Please give generously. Thank you.
