Doomsday Clock moves closer to midnight World not been as close to self-destruction since 1953 Threat of nuclear powers, climate change and technology all considered heightened risks First time the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists have singled out an individual – President Trump Doom-mongering is arguably distracting and uncertainties should be more considered Gold and silver perform well during times of uncertainty and provide a safe-haven Wall Street’s largest fund managers have bet on gold in face of growing uncertainty It is two and a half minutes to midnight, the Clock is ticking, global danger looms. Wise public officials should act immediately, guiding humanity away from the brink. If they do not, wise citizens must step forward and lead the way. Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, January 2017.
