The Hours symbolic of 'Doomsday Clock'

As a result of natural disasters, acts of terrorism and global warming are increasing the greenhouse effect makes The 'Doomsday clock' shifted two minutes faster. This clock as the clock predicted apocalypse will occur at 23:57.
Hours symbolic 'Doomsday Clock' which was founded in 1947, the system made a countdown on the possibility of a global catastrophe caused by through nuclear war and extreme climate change. The Doomsday Clock is a symbol of how close we are to the major disaster or destruction. Getting closer to the middle of the night, the greater the destruction threat facing humanity. When the clock finally midnight, then it's destroyed. 'Doomsday Clock' first appeared in 1947 as a way to warn the world of the atomic scientists of the dangers of nuclear weapons. At that time, scientists set the time at seven minutes to midnight.

Climate Change & Conflicts Increased

In 1949, when the relationship between the United States and the Soviet Union heats up, BAS set the clock was three minutes to midnight. In 1953, after the first test of a hydrogen bomb, the Doomsday Clock is set two minutes to midnight. According to the atomic scientists Bulletin of the Atomic (BAS), action on climate change and increased tensions that occur between countries is the reason for a jump in time becomes faster. As well as the incidence of conflict some countries, such as Russia and the United States as well as the conflicts that occur because of a conflict in Ukraine.
Kennette Benedict, executive director of the BAS revealed that increasing the negative impact of greenhouse also change the Earth's climate dangerous. He also hoped that the citizens who are in conflict areas, in order to ask the leader to take the necessary steps.

The Apocalypse Predicted

The 'Doomsday Clock' is managed by scientists and academics, as well as security specialists who oversee periodically subject to changes over time either rewind or fast. It depends on the level of global risk occurring.
Shift more quickly this time, is the second incident that occurred in 2012 after the last. In that year, the shift clock is only changed by one minute, so it fell to 23:59. Because earlier, predicted apocalypse occurs at 00.00.
For the year 2013, the Doomsday Clock was at five minutes to midnight. BAS put the time after considering the global situation that occurred as a reference. Such as nuclear weapons exist in the world, the recovery process is slow and takes charge of the nuclear tragedy in Fukushima, Japan, and the extreme weather that is consistent with the pattern of global warming.

An Open Letter

Scientists also wrote an open letter to the United States President, Barack Obama, who expressed their views on human life in the bleak future if not immediately take action to protect the earth.

"2012 was the warmest year in the history of the United States, marked by a devastating drought and brutal storms. This extreme events in accordance with the predictions of climate models are loaded into the atmosphere of greenhouse gases," The letter states.

In addition to the threat to the Earth, scientists who are the members of the BAS also write progress in some countries are starting to use wind energy and other renewable energy sources. If this continues then it is not possible Doomsday Clock moves backward and slow.

Excellent post, I agree with you 100%! I’m always scouring the Internet for new information and learning whatever I can, and in doing so I sometimes leave comments on blogs. I don’t do it for SEO purposes necessarily, but to learn new things.

I'm impressed, I must say. Very rarely do I come across a blog that's both informative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you've hit the nail on the head. Your blog is important; the issue is something that not enough people are talking intelligently about.
