Three Minutes Until Doomsday-Doomsday Clock Moves Closer to Midnight

Three, two, one minute until the End as we know it. The proverbial and symbolic Doomsday clocked was moved three minutes until midnight by scientist.

The end of the world has come a lot closer in the past three years, with every single person now in danger as climate change and nuclear weapons pose an escalating threat – according to the scientists behind the Doomsday Clock, a symbolic measure which counts down to Armageddon.

They moved the minute-hand of their 68-year old concept clock forward by two minutes on Thursday, showing a time of three minutes to twelve, to reflect the fact that the “probability of global catastrophe is very high”.

The time change symbolized their damning assessment of world leaders and the outlook for their citizens.

Last July 2014, I posted a story about the Doomsday Clock moving forward and its more than symbolic, its a commentary on people’s reluctant to change but the world will change with or with us.
