'Doomsday Clock' moves a minute back! :D - January 14th 2010, 11:59 PM

All in all this is pretty awesome, although if you click the link and look at how the clock has changed in the past its kinda scary

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/americas/8460324.stm

Quote:
The Doomsday Clock - a barometer of nuclear danger for the past 55 years - has been moved one minute further away from the "midnight hour".
The concept timepiece, devised by the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists (BAS) now stands at six minutes to the hour.
The group said it made the decision to move the clock back because of a more "hopeful state of world affairs".
The clock was first featured by the magazine in 1947, shortly after the US dropped its A-bombs on Japan.
The clock had been adjusted 18 times before today since its initial start at seven minutes to midnight.

Interesting how it increased through George W. Bush's presidency, his foreign stance was a little aggressive. It will be better under Obama, he isn't as aggressive, I don't think many world leaders could be, apart from Russian, Iranian and North Korean leaders, but they are somewhat the usual suspects.

Nuclear war, warhead development and construction is kind of ridiculous, if all of that money had been spent on researching Nuclear Fusion power stations, we'd be far better off energy wise, so would the planet. The first nuclear fusion power plant is currently being built in France (see ITER).

Although, the concept of this clock is a bit much in itself...

The problem is people are much more out to stand for what they've already got than worry about the future of others, since they won't be around when theres a huge energy crisis... Theres a quote 'The world isn't our, simply borrowed from our children' or something like that; but people are too... Welll its all messed up

I agree though I can see it moving back a bit more under Obama but then again if things escalate out of control...
