The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists is expected to announce where the minute hand lies on the "Doomsday Clock," a figurative clock that indicates how close the world's leading scientists think humans are from destroying the planet, today in Washington, D.C.

Midnight on the clock represents "doomsday." The closer the minute hand is to midnight, the higher the chance of a global cataclysm, according to the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists, the group who set the "time" on the symbolic clock.

The clock's minute hand is assessed each year, and the clock's time "conveys how close we are to destroying our civilization with dangerous technologies of our own making," the Bulletin said on its website.

Last year, scientists announced the clock remained at "three minutes to midnight" due to climate change and "extraordinary and undeniable threats to the continued existence of humanity" by the modernization of nuclear weapon arsenals.

In 2015, the clock was moved to "three minutes to midnight," from its place at "five minutes to midnight" in 2014.


Woohoo it's that time I guess. I wonder what it will say. Doom and gloom or better horizons? ATS?

Regardless of what they say, it's fake news.

But seriously, since global warming - whether it be man-made or naturally occuring - shows no signs of slowing down, I'm going to guess it's going back down to 2 minutes.

It's the ultimate fearmongering tool, because it was kind of one of the first fear mongering tools of the modern age.

It's like the clock in the room that you hate to look at, because the time is either too close or too far away.
