Default The Doomsday Clock is now two-and-a-half minutes from midnight

marking the closest we’ve come to global CATASTROPHE in 64 years

The threat of an apocalypse has been moved 30 seconds nearer to midnight
The scientists behind the clock say the move is partly because of Donald Trump
It is related to his 'promise to impede progress' on nuclear weapons and climate change


A Doomsday Clock symbolising the threat of apocalypse has moved
closer to midnight, because of Donald Trump. Researchers who
manage the clock announce the new 'time', two and a half minutes
to midnight, in an event that was live streamed today (pictured)
Chance favors the prepared mind.

This clock has always been a political statement.
