Doomsday is nearer, group says

From Times Wire Reports

The keepers of the "Doomsday Clock" plan to move its hands forward Wednesday to reflect what they call worsening nuclear and climate threats to the world.

The symbolic clock, created in 1947 and maintained by the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists, currently is set at seven minutes to midnight, with midnight marking global catastrophe.
