Bulletin Of The Atomic Scientists Doomsday Clock ...

Recommended Posts

... has just been moved closer to midnight than it's ever been.  The clock is now set at 100 seconds to midnight.   This is to reflect factors like increased competition caused by Anthropogenic Climate Change;   Recent improvements in strategic, nuclear delivery systems.    And more powerful bombs.     https://www.nbcnews.com/science/environment/scientists-move-doomsday-clock-closer-midnight-n1121176

The United States maintains an arsenal of about 1,650 strategic nuclear warheads deployed on Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles (ICBMs), Submarine-Launched Ballistic Missiles (SLBMs), and Strategic Bombers and some 180 tactical nuclear weapons at bomber bases in five European countries.

Other nuclear-armed states, notably Russia and China, are upgrading their arsenals and have tested, produced, and deployed more brand new systems than the United States over the past decade. But the U.S. military has upgraded and refurbished nearly all of its existing strategic and tactical delivery systems and the warheads they carry to last well beyond their originally planned service life

The nuclear arsenals of all the above countries have now been upgraded to be far more destructive than ever.

 

The only purpose for these nukes is  M.A.D.  They have no other use.  The US should be urging every member of the nuclear club to join us in multilateral disarmament.  Instead, the nuclear race is intensifying.

Yep worse then When the cold war tensions were at there highest. The system needs to change and change quick, we need leadership that sees the problems that we are facing are more serious than the current response we are taking. 

 

People do not realize that irreversible damage that we are currently doing to the planet.

Yeah well set off just 20 of these things and the damage we've been doing up till now will be paltry compared to the mess we would have then. Every last one of these weapons needs to be dismantled and destroyed and swore off forever, l can only hope my kid will live in a world one day that these horrors of humanity will be gone.

Damage to the planet through climate change and massive migrations soon to come will happen soon if nothing major is not done in the immediate future. Dealing with Climate change has got to be a united mission immediately. We have to stop with the endless wars. 

The US should lead the way big time since we have caused much of it and also because we have the most resources to deal with it.

Currently our government appears to be a big time clown show to the rest of the world. And that's a big problem!!!

 

Many of us have been thinking about this problem for decades now. We've wasted a whole lot of precious time. I think it is behind a lot of social issues in our country now. 

I seriously feel as though people have no major goal, as if they are languid due to lack of motivational force or something real, some important goal in which to strive toward.

Well it's here, and it's now. 

 

Jonas Salk who developed the vaccine for polio gave it away for free. Later in his life he intensely studied population growth. Today we are at an important inflection point, where 

we have to make very big time decisions. The current population growth is an S, or sigmoidal curve. Today, those who now live, live at a time where population growth is flattening and for several reasons.

Done the right way, leaders should be able to motivate people. And in doing so, we could all lead better lives, not to mention making sure that our youngest as well as future generations benefit immensely by the actions we choose to take - and right quick. 

 

Get motivated. It's worth it.
