For this issue, I asked top experts to tell stories of technology-related doomsdays the world might soon face if specific threats go unaddressed, not to frighten readers, but, in the tradition of the Clock, to alert them, so they might act in time, making a loud and unmistakable demand: that the Earth be preserved, that the human experiment be extended, that midnight never toll.

Why we’re publishing an issue full of Doomsday descriptions.

Together, we make the world safer.
