DO WE REALLY NEED TO KNOW ANY MORE...:

Doomsday Deferred: End-of-World Clock Set Back 1 Minute (LiveScience.com, Jan 14, 2007)

The Doomsday Clock has been set back 1 minute for the first time in its 63-year history. [...]

The last time the Doomsday Clock minute hand moved was in January 2007, when it was pushed forward by two minutes, from seven to five minutes before midnight. The change was meant to reflect two major sources of potential catastrophe that could bring us closer to "doomsday," according to the board of "The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists," a magazine focused on warning the world of the dangers that the invention of the atomic bomb helped to unleash.


...than that these nitwits haven't moved it back when the USSR fell, when nuke programs ended in Brazil, South Africa, Libya, and Iraq, or when the US allied itself with India?
