With this final issue of 2015, the Bulletin looks forward from its first seven decades of publishing to address a future that will include not just a continuing and expanded threat of thermonuclear catastrophe, but also an array of other global dangers, including climate change and the potential misuse of advances in synthetic biology, information technology, and artificial intelligence. To describe the daunting threat matrix that humanity now faces, I have asked some of today’s top public intellectuals to survey the existential dangers before us in the near (and sometimes not-so-near) future.
