This might be the stupidest thing I've seen so far this year...
Experts assessing the dangers posed to civilisation have added climate change to the prospect of nuclear annihilation as the greatest threats to humankind.
As a result, the group has moved the minute hand on its famous "Doomsday Clock" two minutes closer to midnight.
The concept timepiece, devised by the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, now stands at five minutes to the hour.
The clock was first featured by the magazine 60 years ago, shortly after the US dropped its A-bombs on Japan.
Not since the darkest days of the Cold War has the Bulletin, which covers global security issues, felt the need to place the minute hand so close to midnight.
Of course the enviro-moonbats out there, like Al Gore, will eat this up. They'll cite it as more proof that mankind is a parasitic corruptor of Mother Earth. Sadly, scare tactics and dramatic props like the "Doomsday Clock" resonate with dumb, government-educated Democrats.
Here is a time line with all the highlights of the Earth's perilous march toward certain annihilation.
According to atomic scientists, wacky environmentalism ranks as an equal threat to mankind as global thermo-nuclear war...stupid hippies!
