“Doomsday Clock,” is a clock that measures the likelihood of a global cataclysm. A cataclysm, is defined in two definitions:
If a socialist gets to be president, our Constitution will be deleted, therefore, a significant change in our political, social network. The Obama regime, liberals, and Democrats have definitely upset our nation’s social and political nature! So there’s one definition in action now.
The Physical Geography definition, is related to physical changes in our earth’s surface. The rain forests are being destroyed, and how many earthquakes have we had in Oklahoma, Texas, California over the past few years? Flooding and forest fires can be added to the list of Physical Geography.
Scientist are explaining that the rising tension between Russia and the U.S., North Korea’s recent nuclear test and a lack of aggressive steps to address climate change are putting the world under grave threat. North Korea recently used an atomic bomb in their missile tests. Iran also fired missiles against the Iran Nuke Deal rules. Can you imagine what effects these nuclear missiles had on marine life and the ocean?
The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists announced that the minute hand on the metaphorical clock remained at three minutes-to-midnight. The apocalypse is midnight!
These people are geniuses and their work should be taken seriously. The clock reflects how vulnerable the world is to a catastrophe from nuclear weapons, climate change and new technologies, with midnight symbolizing apocalypse. Scientist say these are only three of the issues we’re having, and they’re “extraordinary and undeniable threats to the continued existence of humanity.”
Scientists behind the bulletin adjusted the clock from five minutes-to-midnight to three minutes-to-midnight last year, the closest to midnight it has been since 1983.
Former U.S. Secretary of Defense William Perry, raised concerns about rhetoric from Russia, regarding the use of nuclear weapons and said the threat of nuclear disaster was greater today than during The Cold War.
The decision to move or leave the clock alone is made by the bulletin’s science and security board, which includes physicists and environmental scientists from around the world.
The closest the clock has come to midnight was two minutes away in 1953, when the Soviet Union tested a hydrogen bomb that followed a U.S. hydrogen bomb test.
