Symbolic clock was established by Manhattan Project scientists in 1947 It's designed to show how close civilisation is to facing global catastrophe Scientists track threats by monitoring nuclear weapons and climate change The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists (BAS) will host a live international news conference to make a 'major announcement' on Thursday Expected to reveal the board's decision regarding the clock's minute hand Last time, Doomsday Clock minute hand moved was in January 2012, when it was pushed ahead one minute from six to five minutes before midnight


The ww3 forum seemed the most relevant place to post this.

Will it be 4 minutes or 3 minutes?

I am guessing the icy relations with Russia will have something to do with the change.

Personally, I think the clock is silly.
Everything could be 'peachy keen' between the nuclear armed countries of the world, and one stupid mistake or one silly terrorist that no one had a clue about could start the whole doomsday ball a rolling.

Hell, move it to midnight for all I care. It's just a symbolic gesture that means nothing in the real world.

Yeah the clock is just guess work.

I wonder if it runs on batteries?
Maybe that's the announcement "oops...We forgot to use Duracell."

Peace

The nuclear weapon armed countries of the world are the true terrorist states, with their weapons of mass and indiscriminate destruction. There is no moral high ground.

Back when geocities was running I had a page that I made to keep tabs on the doomsday clock, even made my own digital clock to mirror theirs.

In light of everything that is going on, I would assume they will move it to 4 minutes, possibly three minutes to midnight.
I know they now figure in climate change, or at least they did before, so I would think it would move one minute or two minutes closer.

I went and found the link to the history of time changes on the clock.
You can see the entire history, and why they moved it when they did here:
Doomsday Clock History
Cool, I found my little digital graphic for it...lol


It is even the right time!

LOL!

I also found the video of the clock changing and at the end it says it will change again tomorrow at the end (Jan 22nd)

The closest to midnight the clock has ever been so far was in 1953. It was set to 2 minutes till. That was the year that both the US and the USSR tested thermolnuclear devices successfully within 9 months of each other.

1991 is the the the largest time the clock was set till midnight at 17 minutes. That was the year that the USSR ceased to exist.

Even a broken doomsday clock is right twice an epoch.

I feel like the Atomic Scientists in charge must be/or must be influenced by those who are biased towards Russians then. Seems a bit unfair if you ask me a reply to: eriktheawful

Don't you mean against?

If the USSR dissolving moved the clock back, that would be an anti Russia/USSR stance.

A bunch of nonsense. It's just like the debt clock, based on nothing but reckless speculation in order to keep the herds in a state of worry and fear concerning the future. ~$heopleNation

What exactly is this? I don't know, I'm 14 and I want to know. If someone were to explain to me, that'd be great.
