Late for work? Stuck in the traffic jam coming into Byron? Then please consider the only time that really matters: the time shown on the Doomsday Clock.

2010: six minutes to Midnight, 2012: five minutes, 2015: three minutes, 2017: two and a half minutes, 2018: two minutes to Midnight; at Midnight there is a big bang and lots of fireworks, but no party.

Wars don’t work anymore because the ultimate war will kill everyone on both sides. Even a very limited war between India and Pakistan is now believed to result in a nuclear winter that kills billions globally.

What is the point of getting the crude oil we want, through wars, if we eventually eliminate our own species in the process?
