Breaking: Doomsday Clock Moves Closer to Midnight

Author: Diane Watt

The last time the Doomsday clock was two minutes from midnight was the 1950s, when the Soviet Union and America thumped chests by “testing” nuclear weapons during the Cold War.

Now, we’re back there again.

Thursday, Jan 26th, the clock’s keepers placed it 2.5 minutes from midnight.

Why the change?

  • Nuclear Threats
    • We’ve more nuclear weapons than ever
    • Multiple nations including North Korea, India, and Pakistan conducting tests
  • Climate Change
    • Many scientist believe we’ve passed the environmental point of no return
  • Increasing Technology
    • Increasing hacks show vulnerability
    • Society is increasingly reliant on technology
    • The development of DNA-editing technology such as CRISPR (which has the ability to cure diseases) could be used negatively
