The Board of Directors of the magazine "The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists" will be moving the hands of The Doomsday Clock a couple of minutes forward this year, reflecting concerns about:
...a "Second Nuclear Age" marked by grave threats, including nuclear ambitions in Iran and North Korea, unsecured nuclear materials in Russia and elsewhere, and the continuing "launch-ready" status of 2,000 of the 25,000 nuclear weapons held by the U.S. and Russia.
The board also cited "escalating terrorism, and new pressure from climate change for expanded civilian nuclear power that could increase proliferation risks."
And of course, the Stephen Harper government is doing its bit to push the hands towards midnight and nuclear disaster with their "nukes for the tar-sands" proposal.
Here's an investment tip: put your money in sawed off shotguns and freeze-dried food. And get out your tinfoil "nuke toque" so the radiation doesn't fry your brain.
Doom, baby, doom!
