Re: At doom’s doorstep: It is 100 seconds to midnight

Last year’s leadership change in the United States provided hope that what seemed like a global race toward catastrophe might be halted and—with renewed US engagement—even reversed. *** Still, the change in US leadership alone was not enough to reverse negative international security trends that had been long in developing and continued across the threat horizon in 2021. *** Although the new US administration’s quick return to the Paris Agreement speaks the right words, it has yet to be matched with actionable policies. ***
