Just 100 seconds left… Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists has moved forward the #DoomsdayClock, it is now just 100 seconds to midnight, amid looming threats of nuclear weapons, climate change and disruptive technologies.
Two years after moving the metaphorical minute hand of its Doomsday Clock to within two minutes of midnight — a figurative two-minute warning for all humanity — the science and security board of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists revealed Thursday that it has moved that minute hand another 20 seconds closer to the midnight hour. NPR News Reported.
The Doomsday Clock was reset Thursday to just 100 seconds before midnight — the closest we have ever been to the complete and total annihilation of the earth (well, at least metaphorically). https://t.co/GK1lETf2x2

WELP. I just found out the Doomsday Clock is now at two minutes to midnight. I guess we can all relax now. Our lives aren’t going to get better because very soon we won’t have any. Between the environment and the nukes we have nothing to look forwards to. The world leaders are all idiots. Screw you, world. I hate the human race and I hate YOU. I can’t bear the thought of dying a slow, horrible death from radiation poisoning so I might as well end it fast and less painful. Once again world, screw you.

What can we do to set back the Doomsday Clock? The reckless actions of Donald Trump are hitting home today after the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists announced that they moved the Doomsday Clock to a mere 100 seconds to midnight.
Trump has pushed us to the brink of disaster. By ripping up the Iran nuclear agreement and ordering the assassination of Soleimani, Trump and his administration have prompted Iran to begin enriching uranium. But together, we can move the hand away from midnight by demanding #PeaceWithIran. Take to the streets with us for the International Day of Action against war with Iran on Saturday, January 25th.

Australia singled out for climate ‘denial’ at Doomsday Clock event. “”Under its current leadership, Australia is fostering denial in an incredibly mendacious way”. #climatechangehttps://t.co/LmgWhRuYI8 via @smh
