Doomsday Clock Moved 30 Seconds Closer To Midnight

Today, citing the election of Donald Trump among other things, the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists has moved the Doomsday Clock closer to midnight.

TheBulletin.org reports, “In the 2017 Doomsday Clock Statement, the Bulletin’s Science and Security Board notes that world leaders have failed to come to grips with humanity’s most pressing existential threats: nuclear weapons and climate change. Disturbing comments about the use and proliferation of nuclear weapons made by President Trump, as well as the expressed disbelief in the overwhelming scientific consensus on climate change by both Trump and several of his cabinet appointees, affected the Board’s decision, as did the emergence of strident nationalism worldwide.”

It’s a scary time y’all!
