Almost Midnight

On 10th January the Doomsday Clock ticked on to 5 to midnight. A concept of atomic scientists at the onset of the cold war in 1947 and set to 11:53, the highest point was in 1991 when it was set to 11:43 after the fall of Soviet Russia. Since then there has been a steady trend towards global disaster measured mostly by the danger of nuclear war. In 2007 climate change was factored in.
