Doomsday Clock 2016 current time: How close we are to extinction?
When is the doomsday? What time will it happen? How far away is the doomsday?
These are questions that seem to be on the mind of almost everyone at the moment as the talk of doomsday clock continues to go viral on social media and search engines across the world.
The followers of the three Abrahamic religions including Christians, Muslims and Jews all believe in the concept of doomsday.
In the meantime the doomsday clock remains at the same time, three minutes to midnight. The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, which oversees the clock — a metaphor of how close humanity is to destroying the planet — left the hands in place from last year, which is the closest it has been to midnight since the Cold War days of 1984.
While talking about it in detail, the Bulletin said, â€œThree minutes (to midnight) is too close. Far too closeâ€¦We, the members of the Science and Security Board of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, want to be clear about our decision not to move the hands of the Doomsday Clock in 2016: That decision is not good news, but an expression of dismay that world leaders continue to fail to focus their efforts and the world’s attention on reducing the extreme danger posed by nuclear weapons and climate changeâ€.
It went on to add, “When we call these dangers existential, that is exactly what we mean: They threaten the very existence of civilization and therefore should be the first order of business for leaders who care about their constituents and their countries.”
