Doomsday Clock is not Helpful



DOOMSDAY CLOCK IS NOT HELPFUL Reuters reports today that the so-called "Doomsday Clock" has had its hands moved closer to midnight (ie global destruction) in the wake of the US election.
 
However, it must be noted that, whilst doubtless very emotive, this device is an arbitrary one. 
 
The original starting position of the clock's hands was set by a magazine artist who thought the position looked good. 
 
If science wants to be taken more seriously in an age of scepticism, it must find better and more objective ways to make its point to the wider public.
