Doomsday Clock moves 90 seconds to midnight over nuke risk

From the article:

The “Doomsday Clock” moved forward to 90 seconds to midnight on Tuesday, largely over the increased risk of nuclear escalation amid Russia’s nearly year-long invasion of Ukraine.

The clock had previously spent two years at 100 seconds to midnight. The last time the clock ticked away from midnight was in 2010, when the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists hailed progress toward nuclear arms reduction and international pledges to limit climate-warming emissions.

The clock started out at seven minutes to midnight in 1947 and reached a maximum of 17 minutes to midnight in 1991 after the U.S. and Soviet Union signed a nuclear reduction treaty, according to the official timeline….

2 Peter 3:9-10

KJV(i) 9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. 10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens (G3772) shall pass away (G3928) with a great noise (G4500), and the elements (G4747) shall melt (G3089) with fervent heat (G2741), the earth also and the works (G2041) that are therein shall be burned up (G2618).
