Doomsday Clock Closer To Midnight; Blames Trump


Due to increasing worry over nuclear weapons and climate change, scientists at the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists have moved the symbolic "Doomsday Clock" 30-seconds closer to midnight. The clock is now 2.5 minutes from midnight.

The closest it's ever been to Midnight was 1953, when the hydrogen bomb was first tested. Annually, the group of scientists look at the prior year to determine if we've moved closer or further from destruction as a society.

They took this opportunity to place blame on President Donald Trump calling him "reckless" and "cavalier" in the ways he addresses the threat of nuclear war and climate change.
