Reuters, via Interaksyon.com, reports that the symbolic Doomsday Clock calculated by a group called the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists was "moved a minute closer to midnight" on Tuesday, January 10. The group said this was due to the "inadequate progress on nuclear weapons reduction and climate change."

 

In the Reuters report,  journalist Rodney Joyce pointed out: "The Bulletin (www.thebulletin.org) is a periodical founded in 1945 by University of Chicago scientists who had helped develop the first atomic weapons in the Manhattan Project. They created the Doomsday Clock two years later to symbolize how close humanity was to self-annihilation, with an initial setting of seven minutes to midnight."
