“It’s a decision our experts do not take lightly.”
It’s an annual ritual. One that the media enables because it enjoys clickbait and lies. And the doomsday clock has lots of both.
Every year, Rachel Bronson, President and CEO of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, who has a degree in political science from Columbia, gets up in front of a fake clock to announce that the world is doomed.
And now it’s time for the Doomsday Clock to be set for 90 seconds to midnight. Or whatever gets media attention.
If you don’t believe Rachel, maybe you’ll listen to Jerry Brown, former California governor and executive chair of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists. Jerry is not an atomic scientist, but he did nuke California.
Jerry’s still there.
