Doomsday Clock Moves 30 Seconds Closer to Apocalypse

Humanity is Now 2 and a Half Minutes to “Midnight,” According to Scientists

This is the first time the clock moves forward in two years, making it the closest to midnight since the early 1980s.

The scientists warned: “The probability of global catastrophe is very high, and the actions needed to reduce the risks of disaster must be taken very soon.”

Adding that “Wise public officials should act immediately, guiding humanity away from the brink.”

The decision to move the clock was based on “issues including a rise in strident nationalism worldwide, US President Donald Trump’s comments on nuclear arms and climate issues, a darkening global security landscape that is coloured by increasingly sophisticated technology, and a grown disregard for scientific expertise”.

The Doomsday Clock was originally started by scientists who were involved in the Manhattan Project.

What was initially an indicator of the likelihood of disastrous nuclear conflict, now also includes threats such as biological weapons, climate change and cyber warfare threats.

“The global security landscape darkened” says committee of scientists.
