Los Angeles : All thanks to Donald Trump, the doomsday clock is yet again ticking another 30 seconds closer to the apocalypse. 

The metaphorical Doomsday Clock’s hands have now been moved to two minutes and 30 seconds before midnight — the time that represents when a catastrophic nuclear event can annihilate the earth.

The event has sparked a dire warning from scientists across the world who mention that the reason to move the clocks arms include- a rise in strident nationalism worldwide, cyber threats, an "active and blatant disregarding" for factual science and President Trump's comments on nuclear arms and climate change.

The revision of the clock has been a regular event but remained at three minutes before midnight last year — the same as it was in 2015.

Basically positive developments in the world increase the time for an apocalypse and negative events reduces it. It's the closest the clock has been to midnight since the Cold War of the 1950s.

The Doomsday Clock was at two minutes to midnight in 1953, when the U.S. was mired in the Cold War with the Soviet Union. 

The clock was pushed as far back as 17 minutes before midnight in 1991. That was the year the Cold War ended.

Scientists have maintained that the future of the clock and our future is in our hands.
