[Question] What is EA opinion on The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists?

Looks like The Bul­letin of the Atomic Scien­tists is the first or­ga­ni­za­tion in the world work­ing on ex­is­ten­tial risks with the clearly stated mis­sion “to re­duce man-made threats to our ex­is­tence”. This or­ga­ni­za­tion started with nu­clear weapon, but this cen­tury also in­cluded Cli­mate Change and Dis­rup­tive Tech­nolo­gies into their agenda. In­deed, their old­est ar­ti­cle on Biose­cu­rity is dated Feb 2007, which is older then OpenPhil and al­most the same age as FHI.

Nev­er­the­less, I didn’t see a sin­gle men­tion of The Bul­letin on 80k, and even on this fo­rum they were men­tioned only sev­eral times. I went through some of their ar­ti­cles, and they’re too vague and in­for­mal for my taste, though it can be just a bad se­lec­tion. Does some­one knows if some­thing is wrong with The Bul­letin in gen­eral or is there any spe­cific rea­son it doesn’t ap­pear in EA-re­lated dis­cus­sions?
