Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

'Doomsday Clock' Jumps 2 Minutes Forward

'Doomsday Clock' Jumps 2 Minutes

The Doomsday Clock may not have moved last year, but today it made up for it: The Bulletin of Atomic Scientists announced that the clock jumped ahead two minutes and now stands at three minutes before midnight, reports Mashable. "Midnight," of course, being the end of civilization. The organization cited concerns about the world's nuclear arsenals, but it also placed a big share of the blame for the time change on global warming and what it sees as political inaction to get it under control, reports the Guardian.

"Human influence on the climate system is clear," said Richard Somerville of the Bulletin. "Each of the last three decades has been successively warmer than any preceding on record." This is the closest we've come to the group's Doomsday since the US and the Soviet Union were in the grips of the Cold War in 1984. The only time the clock has been closer to midnight is after the USSR's work on a hydrogen bomb in 1953 set it to 11:58.

Clock’s ticking: Humanity ‘2 minutes’ closer to its doomsday — RT News

Three minutes to midnight – with midnight being the figurative end of humanity – are left before apocalypse descends upon the planet, scientists announced on Thursday, as the minute hand of the iconic ‘Doomsday Clock’ was adjusted two minutes forward.

World leaders have failed to act with the speed or on the scale required to protect citizens from potential catastrophe,” Kennette Benedict, the executive director of the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists, the organization behind the Doomsday Clock, announced on Thursday.

Citing climate change and nuclear tensions, the latest decision to move the minute hand closer to midnight – thus pronouncing the world closer to its doom – was traditionally made by the Bulletin's board of directors and the sponsors, including a number of Nobel laureates.
