Scientists used the “Doomsday Clock” to warn humanity of Earth’s pending demise on Thursday when they moved the time closer to midnight.  For those unaware, midnight is the “end of humanity” as we know it or the apocalypse.

The clock is now set at 100 seconds to midnight. It’s the first time the clock has been set within the two minute mark. According to NBC News, scientists cited accelerated global warming and a nuclear war threat as two of the factors in their decision.

The likeliness of a human-caused apocalypse is increasing, say the scientists. “We have normalized a very dangerous world in terms of the risks of nuclear warfare and climate change,” Robert Rosner, chair of the Bulletin’s Science and Security Board, said in a public briefing.

The Bulletin of Atomic Scientists was founded in 1945, and the group has maintained the Doomsday Clock since 1947. Each year, the organization consults with a board of sponsors that includes 13 Nobel Laureates to analyze a range of threats to determine whether the Doomsday Clock’s hands should be adjusted. –NBC News
