Official Doomsday Clock , What time is it?
I would think with all the current nuclear threats,it will soon be in the news that the Doomsday clock will be set even closer to midnight.

The closer the clock is to midnight, the closer the world is estimated to be to global disaster. The most recent officially announced setting — five minutes to midnight (11:55pm) — was made on 10 January 2012.[1] Reflecting international events dangerous to humankind, the clock's hands have been adjusted twenty times since its inception in 1947,[2] when the clock was initially set to seven minutes to midnight (11:53pm).


Originally, the clock analogy represented the threat of global nuclear war; however, since 2007 it has also reflected climate-changing technologies and "new developments in the life sciences that could inflict irrevocable harm.

Martyl Langsdorf helped bring the threat of nuclear war into the world’s consciousness by designing the “Doomsday Clock” and its unnerving minute hand, which has become a gauge of the the world’s vulnerability to atomic destruction as it nears midnight — and annhilation.
