Doomsday Clock Set at 5 'Til Midnight





The iconic Doomsday Clock remains poised at five minutes until midnight, the Science and Security Board of the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists announced today (Jan. 14).

The clock is no doomsday device — rather, it's a visual metaphor for the danger of a "civilization-threatening technological catastrophe." Every year, the board analyzes international threats, particularly nuclear arsenals and climate change, and decides where the minute hand on the Doomsday Clock should rest. The closer it is to midnight, the closer the world is to doom.

They're really going to have to milk the last 5 minutes.

our analysis skills as it relates to issues such as this are infantile...
it could be 1 second left and we would still be saying 5 minutes to midnight....lol
it just takes 1 major nuclear plant explosion to decimate all of humanity....

one love

On point ... I don't think, hopefully, those of us that are science minded will attempt to successfully argue against the point.
