Doomsday clock closest to catastrophe since 1953

Doomsday clock closest to catastrophe since 1953

The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists announced Thursday that its symbolic ’doomsday clock’, unveiled every year, was stuck at two minutes to midnight. The clock, created in 1947, intends to warn of impending disasters. The BAS warned that we are ’normalizing a very dangerous world’. The only time the BAS judged the world being this close to catastrophe was 1953, the early stages of the cold war.

Who takes this seriously? It's about as reliable as the Nobel peace prize winners.

What about denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula? The "clock" somehow forgot about the monumental talks with Kim Jong Un. Just more liberal blather in which they come up with another way to complain about Trump which is a symptom of their inability to recognize that they lost the 2016 election. We're going on year 3 now everyone. Grow up.

This is pretty unscientific for something conceived by scientists. "2 minute warning?" Yeah okay. No one can tell you what that means, but it certainly isn't 2 minutes.

How is current day at all comparable to the Cold War era when people were building bomb shelters in their back yards.

I still can't understand what this is all about and why it's important. It's not the end of the world.
