The Doomsday Clock is Now at Two Minutes to Midnight – Might as Well Crank Some Maiden
While the news of the Doomsday Clock being moved to two minutes to midnight is disheartening, it’s a hell of an excused to jam one of Iron Maiden’s greatest tunes.
According to the Washington Post, the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists advanced the clock a little closer to the hour of the apocalypse – the closest it’s been since 1953.
The bulletin’s reasoning for advancing the clock is “the failure of President Trump and other world leaders to deal with looming threats of nuclear war and climate change.” The organization, made up of 15 Nobel Laureate winners, stated collectively, “the world is not only more dangerous now than it was a year ago; it is as threatening as it has been since World War II.”
Personally, I’m not a fan of these sorts of symbolic gestures and the fear they instill in people, but I am most certainly a fan of Iron Maiden, so I’ll take this opportunity to crank ‘em up!
