It’s 2 minutes to midnight, half a minute closer than last year! Careless uninformed leaders are moving the clock closer to disaster.
From the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists:
“In 2017, world leaders failed to respond effectively to the looming threats of nuclear war and climate change, making the world security situation more dangerous than it was a year ago—and as dangerous as it has been since World War II.”
“Leaders react when citizens insist they do so…They
can insist on facts, and discount nonsense. They can demand action to reduce the existential threat of nuclear war and unchecked climate change. They can seize the opportunity to make a safer and saner world.
“They can #rewindtheDoomsdayClock.”
