Default We're doomed. Doomed!

Doomsday clock lurches to 100 seconds to midnight – closest to catastrophe yet

The risk of civil collapse from nuclear weapons and the climate crisis is at a record high, according to US scientists and former officials, calling the current environment “profoundly unstable”. They said the rise of “cyber-enabled disinformation campaigns” compounds both threats by keeping the public from insisting on progress. The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists announced its symbolic “doomsday clock” has moved forward to 100 seconds to midnight, the closest to catastrophe that the scientists have judged the world to be at any point since its creation in 1947, at the outset of the cold war.
Looking on the bright side Brexit might not happen

Is this another attempt to get more money for more weaponry ? If you invent these things,doesn't it occur that someone ,somewhere ,will want to use it .
As I don't want to give that f****r Dick Cheney anymore money, or thought for that matter, for his 'just in time' vaccine for 'whatever the hell has been thought up to kill us this time...Oh Chinese flu ?. I would rather go out in a nuclear cloud thanks.

I'd like to have a little berth on the Red Dwarf ! I could get along with the crew there better than most places on earth. Even if Cat does have dangerous animal dna.
