Doomsday shows that only 100 seconds separates us from the apocalypse



The Day of Doomsday typed 100 seconds until midnight, symbolizing the greatest level of danger to humanity since its launch in 1947 because of the threats posed by climate change and the growing nuclear race.

Doomsday, a hypothetical clock that measures how much it separates us from the apocalypse, was devised by scientists.



The timing of the Day of Doomsday is decided by a team of scientists, including 13 Nobel Prize winners.

The world is near disaster in seconds

The level of danger is determined by the analysis of data ranging from information on information warfare to dangerous technologies such as counterfeit video and audio or the degree of militarization of space and the development of hypersonic weapons.

“We show how close the world is to disaster in seconds – not in hours or even minutes,” said Rachel Bronson, president of the Atomic Scientists Society, announcing the change.

The clock was set to seven minutes by midnight in 1947, and the most critical years so far when ticking two minutes by midnight were 2018 and 2019 for failure to combat climate change and the nuclear race, and in 1953 for U.S. and Russian nuclear tests.

The safest year was after the end of the Cold War in 1991, when it showed 17 minutes to midnight.

A particular problem with nuclear weapons

Scientist Sharon Squassoni says that as far as the nuclear arms race is concerned, its control mechanisms, which have been helping to prevent the catastrophe for more than half a century, are being phased out and could disappear by next year.

This includes last year's cancellation of the Middle Range Nuclear Weapons (INF) agreement, which opened the door for the US and Russia to begin the race to develop the then-banned weapons. The US has hinted that it will not extend the New START, a stockpile agreement signed in 2010.

“This year, we could witness not only the complete collapse of Iran's nuclear deal,” adds Squassoni, a nuclear weapons expert, as Tehran boasts of its uranium enrichment efforts.

Despite initial hopes that US President Donald Trump's unusual approach to North Korea will bear fruit, no real progress has been made, Squassoni says, and Pyongyang has instead pledged to continue developing strategic weapons.

As far as the fight against climate change is concerned, the two major UN summits did not result in an agreement to take the much-needed measures to limit the long-term warming set out in the Paris Agreement, which according to scientists is needed to prevent the disaster.

Climate change

The effects are already visible in record heat waves and floods in India in 2019 and fires from the Arctic to Australia.

“If humankind pushes the climate in the opposite direction of the Ice Age,” Stockholm Institute of Environmental Science scientist Sivan Kartha says “we have no reason to believe that human civilization will be able to live in such a world.”

Misinformation campaigns and fake news triggered by fabricated videos are a powerful threat to social security, and the growth of weapons that rely on artificial intelligence like drones that attack targets without human oversight creates uncertainty.

Russia, meanwhile, has announced the creation of a new hypersonic missile, and the US is testing its own weapons, which significantly limits the response time of the attacked countries.

The space, long the field of international cooperation, has become increasingly militarized by testing missiles and laser weapons, and the United States has created a new kind of military – space power.
