The Dooms Day clock has been moved to 2 minutes before midnight due to climate change. The closest it has been since the clock was created to monitory the nuclear powers and warn about nuclear proliferation.

Looks as if climate change is going to make the nuclear power to push their button destroying us all.

You know this as others such things have become a complete joke when they claim we are closer to destruction today than we were when we were literally days away from going to war with the USSR over the Cuban Missile Crisis.

False. The scientists in charge of the Doomsday Clock didn't change it "due to climate change."

According to USA Today:

Scientists blamed a cocktail of threats ranging from dangerous political rhetoric to the potential of a nuclear threat as the catalysts for moving the clock closer toward doomsday.

"The greatest risks last year arose in the nuclear realm," the statement said. "North Korea’s nuclear weapons program appeared to make remarkable progress in 2017, increasing risks for itself, other countries in the region, and the United States."

"Hyperbolic rhetoric and provocative actions on both sides have increased the possibility of nuclear war by accident or miscalculation."

Doomsday Clock moves thirty seconds closer to 'midnight' due to rising nuclear tensions, climate change

Alex Lasker, AOL.com
Jan 25th 2018 10:36AM

The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists officially moved its Doomsday Clock 30 seconds closer to 'midnight' on Thursday morning, citing both rising nuclear tensions and climate change as the main influences behind the update.

The clock is now set at just two minutes away from doom, the closest it has ever been since 1953 when the United States and the Soviet Union upgraded their nuclear arsenals with the hydrogen bomb.




In the headlines and first paragraph of the story.

N Korea is a total and complete joke when it comes to their ability to send nuclear missiles down range. Just being able to detonate nuclear device does not mean they are capable of putting them into a missile and delivering them.

Both Fast Man and Little Boy were detonated in test but neither would have fit on a missile for delivery. Hell give me enough refined nuclear materials and a fully stock machine shop i could even create a nuclear device(not that i would). Little Boy design was so simple that anyone with any kind of mechanical skills could create it with proper materials. That is why they try to keep such close watch on refined weapons grade nuclear materials.

The doomsday clock has been reset at least a dozen times since the 50's. I suppose it will be reset another dozen times in the next few years. But, without a doubt our world is becoming a much more dangerous place to reside in about every way it can be as each day and international crises appears.

And the investigations continue,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
