IT IS TWO AND A HALF MINUTES TO MIDNIGHT

DoomsdayClock 2.5mins


For the last two years, the minute hand of the Doomsday Clock stayed set at three minutes before the hour, the closest it had been to midnight since the early 1980s. In its two most recent annual announcements on the Clock, the Science and Security Board warned: “The probability of global catastrophe is very high, and the actions needed to reduce the risks of disaster must be taken very soon.” In 2017, we find the danger to be even greater, the need for action more urgent. It is two and a half minutes to midnight, the Clock is ticking, global danger looms. Wise public officials should act immediately, guiding humanity away from the brink. If they do not, wise citizens must step forward and lead the way.  See the full statement from the Science and Security Board on the 2017 time of the Doomsday Clock.

Que sera, sera, Whatever will be, will be, The future is not ours to see, Que sera, sera !

The "doomsday-clock" was at two minutes to midnight from 1953 to 1960. At 3 minutes to midnight from 1949-1953, 1984-1988 and 2015-2017. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doomsday_Clock Normaly they do not use half-minutes.
