Doomsday Clock is 100 seconds to midnight– closest to ’apocalypse’ yet

Doomsday Clock is 100 seconds to midnight– closest to ’apocalypse’ yet

The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists announced its ’doomsday clock’ has moved forward this year from 2 min to midnight to 100 seconds to midnight, the closest to ’apocalypse’ that the scientists have judged the world to be at any point since 1947. Nuclear and climate dangers compounded by a cyber-enabled information war that undercuts society’s ability to respond are the reasons for the decision.

Just replace the batteries... Damn thing has been slow for years. I think we have been on "the brink of global disaster" at least 4 times in my 50+ years of existence.

What once was based on nuclear proliferation is now taking I on themselves to get preachy on how the world can end based on everything from Climate Change, to Artificial Intelligence and Deep Fake videos. Gimme a break.

It also seems apparent that the only time the "Doomsday Clock" has improved is when the Cold War was won... its been slipping ever since. not even the Paris Climate Accord wound its' hands back. ...maybe its not just symbolic, but also a scare tactic for political posturing?

Considering the Cuban Missle Crisis wasn't 0.01 seconds before midnight, I call BS.

What a bunch of bs. Fear mongering at its best. "Either get with the globalist agenda or its the end of us", "stop thinking for yourself"

When did they add 'climate' to the clock? I thought it was supposed to measure concerns surrounding nuclear catastrophe?

Yea Democrats want war with Russia. but Trump is causing WWIII? As one witness put it during our impeachment inquiry, the United States aids Ukraine and her people so that we can fight Russia over there, and we don't have to fight Russia here," Schiff said, drawing rebukes from commentators across the political spectrum. Schiff attracted the most criticism, however, for later arguing that Trump must be removed from office by the Senate -- rather than by voters in the 2020 election https://www.foxnews.com/us/trumps-senate-impeachment-trial-schiff
