Two minutes to midnight

The Doomsday Clock has been advanced to two minutes to midnight by the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists (BAS) [01]. They are a group of leading scientists and engineers founded by members of the original Manhattan Project. The setting of the Doomsday Clock is symbolic, where midnight is the time of the apocalypse: it is supposed to alert politicians and citizens around the world to the dangers our technologies (especially nuclear weapons) pose.

 

The clock has been set forward by half a minute by the BAS for a number of reasons including North Korea's development of nuclear missiles; the rise of distrust in the political system, news media and science, and world leaders' inaction on climate change.

Lauri is unlikely to meet justice in America, in his case the most likely outcome is jail without a trial.

This year we have seen a revolution in Iceland with Pirates taking a sudden 10 seats, up from three. An amazingly successful campaign, based on openness, transparency and restoring the power back to the people.

However in the USA we have seen a very different kind of revolution, where voters were forced to choose the candidate they considered the "least worst".
