    100 seconds to midnight

    The bulletin of atomic scientists has said the world is closer to doomsday than ever before. Who knows? It has been said for many years, but I can see how humans have pushed it to the brink now more than ever.

    Seems tautological to suggest that if there were some future doomsday event that the present is closer than any prior time.

      I understood this better during the Cold War. Back then we all lived under the constant threat of being vaporized or irradiated hideously. Today that threat is not the same, so I fail to see how it could be much worse. One of the reasons for large nuclear weapons stockpiles is the belief that neither side will be able to get all of them into the sky. I've heard some estimates at less than 30% of them even getting launched. Among the factors is refusal by the missile crews.
