The Bulletin said: “To halt the worst effects of climate change, the countries of the world must cut net worldwide carbon dioxide emissions to zero by well before the end of the century.

“By such a measure, the world community failed dismally last year.”

With tensions recently escalating in the Middle East, particularly between the US and Iran, it is unlikely the situation will not weigh in on The Bulletin’s decision.

Last year The Bulletin criticised the US’ decision to abandon the Iran nuclear deal and warned against nations such as North Korea moving towards “nuclear modernisation”.

The Bulletin said: “It is unclear whether they will keep the agreement alive, but one thing is certain: The Trump administration has launched an assault on one of the major nuclear nonproliferation successes of recent years and done so in a way that increases the likelihood of conflict with Iran and further heightens tensions with long-term allies.”
