Why Was Doomsday Clock Moved A Minute Closer?

From the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, where worry about climate change gets equal time alongside their original mission; nuclear holocaust, apparently they haven’t noticed that the Fukashima incident is over and no lives were lost and that there been no statistically significant warming in the past 10+ years.

The symbolic Doomsday Clock calculated by a group of scientists was moved a minute closer to midnight on Tuesday, with the group citing inadequate progress on nuclear weapons reduction and climate change.

What IS DoomsDay Clock?

The Bulletin (www.thebulletin.org) is a periodical founded in 1945 by University of Chicago scientists who had helped develop the first atomic weapons in the Manhattan Project.

They created the Doomsday Clock two years later to symbolize how close humanity was to self-annihilation, with an initial setting of seven minutes to midnight.

Initially the clock was focused on nuclear war, but it has been broadened in recent years as the scientists, who include a range of Nobel laureates, added other risks to humanity.
