Experts: the danger of the apocalypse on Earth remained at the same level

Scientists believe that the probability of a global catastrophe on our planet, as before, remains high, RIA News message of the journal "Bulletin of the atomic scientists".

“The experts left the hands on the doomsday dial at 23: 57, where midnight means a global catastrophe on Earth. The main problem of mankind, according to scientists, is the proliferation and modernization of nuclear weapons", - said in the article.

At the same time, the journal notes that “important steps were taken towards the prevention of the apocalypse: one of them is the Paris climate agreement, the other is an agreement on the Iranian nuclear program”.

It is reported that "physicists and ecologists from all over the world, including the Nobel laureates 17, took part in the study."

The magazine reminds that the project “Doomsday Clock” was created by the developers of the first American atomic bomb back in 1947, “to monitor the nuclear danger on the planet.”

Initially, the hands on this watch were installed on 23: 53. Since then, they have been translated 20 times.

Last time the shooters transferred last year, stopping at 23: 57. At that time, according to experts, the main problems of humanity that could lead to an apocalypse were “climate change, opposition to the East and the West, and the improvement of nuclear weapons”.

          Earlier (when we were in the USSR) we began such statements with the phrase: "Armenian radio said ..."
          Now the Armenian radio has been replaced by the word "scientists".
          But the essence remains the same - Crap. laughing

          That's exactly "am". The hands of the clock were moved. Tired. Let's go and eat a hearty meal. We chatted about the apocalypse, got tired and lay down to rest. And having rested, they got down to business again. The arrows need someone to translate.

      The clock goes right.
      Fortunately, in the face of the USSR, and now Russia, a good watchmaker has appeared in the world, who has created a mechanism for eyeliner "hours" for minus.
      If it were not for this, world history would have counted the time not "before", but "after" the apocalypse.

    I think experts, after the US presidential election, the arrows will return back to 23.30, and after the election in Russia, they will stop at this figure. That's where to put the Nazis from Ukraine.

    Clowns still live in the West .... laughing Themselves literally do everything in order to bring this "apocalypse" closer. If the top Westerners think they are sitting in bunkers - they did not guess so - they will burst zombie fellow
    The funniest thing is that Western townsfolk fiercely believe in all this: at the end of the world, and in zombies and other nonsense .....

    The western man in the street needs another whip to keep him in check. The threat of a nuclear war with the "evil empire" is justified spending on armaments, as after 911 in the United States began tightening the police screws, restricting personal freedoms in the fight against terrorism.

    Yeah! And the representatives of the DPRK were invited ?? They have their own watches, and their own ideology. Now we’re talking not about Russia and the USA, there are already a lot of clowns in the world who either made nuclear weapons or on the threshold. You ask them, it’s not without reason that they tried ! hi

    The “Loan Day Watch” was created by the developers of the first American atomic bomb back in 1947 “to monitor the nuclear danger on the planet.”

    First developers American were atomic bombs going to monitor themselves? In 1947 none of the states of the world had atomic weapons.

    Another minute and there will be a level of 53 years. By the way, the Caribbean crisis did not affect them at all, a tenfold reduction in nuclear arsenals from the end of the eighties is also not particularly noticeable on the dial, which proves the conditional nature of the activities of watchmakers.

    Nuclear weapons in Pakistan, Iran and other amorous countries. Of course, this is dangerous and fraught, and scientists and all sane people see the danger correctly. In general, instead of politicians, scientists would be better off. These are more moral people and more advanced.

    “... physicists and environmentalists from around the world took part in the study, including 17 Nobel laureates.”

    Why do you need to clarify about Nobel laureates? It is as if the scientist who once received the Nobel Prize is a cut above the scientist who does not have this prize. In addition, everyone knows that the system for receiving this award is highly politicized.

    Well, that's why I'm already picking up geometric laughter. The phrase "British scientists" is funny as the shortest anecdote.
