Doomsday Clock is now 100 seconds from midnight !!!

The hypothetical clock measures our nearness to Armageddon.

Heat waves, ice loss, fires
2019 also brought alarming new evidence of climate change's momentum, and demonstrated its destructive power. In fact, humanity's disruption of climate on land and in the oceans is "unprecedented," according to a report released in September 2019 by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the United Nations body that evaluates the impacts of climate change.
Globally, the year was the second hottest since record keeping began in 1880, and the past decade was the warmest on record, NASA reported earlier this month. July 2019 smashed records as the hottest month ever recorded on Earth, after a sweltering heat wave baked countries across Europe and then flowed over Greenland, where it melted 217 billion tons (197 billion metric tons) of ice.
Ocean temperatures are warmer than they've been at any point in human history, and they're heating up at an accelerating rate. The world's thickest mountain glacier is retreatingthe Sahara Desert expanded by about 10%, and the Arctic's most stable sea ice is disappearing. 
Severe drought in Australia, also linked to climate change, fueled devastating brushfires that blazed across the continent over recent months. The flames destroyed thousands of homes, damaged fragile ecosystems and killed an estimated 1.25 billion animals, according to the World Wildlife Fund.

And the majority of the worlds people bury their heads in the sand for the sake of keeping their jobs & their city lifestyles for just a little longer. What is it going to take if we are to stop global anthropogenic global warming & climate change? A revolution? Civil war? A world war?
Corrupt governments are NOT going to stop global warming, they are busy thinking about the economy, votes, lining their own pockets with bribes from the fossil fuel industries! We are now at just 100 seconds from midnight people, how long do you think before we reach the environmental point of no return? How long before the clock strikes 12 Midnight !!!

There will not be any bloody economy, no jobs & no cushy city lifestyles in a dead world, wake up people we are running out of time fast, literally!!!
