    At least your dog will know when he'll/she'll die, when you'll give him/her food, and when he'll/she'll sleep. They don't

    I agree. I am an ardent believer in GW, but it will take at least a few centuries for massive destruction to come. Enough time for us to reform. Yet that's another subjct

    You're funny thinking that it has anything to do with the future instead of:

    "the measure of how capable mankind is of imploding on itself".
    Face it, the clock is a joke. It's all rhetoric by a bunch of delusional and clueless idiots. If one really wants a genuine measure, one should fill the commitee by foreign policy wonks, not a bunch of scientists clueless about world events

    The Clock is more of a tool of the Neo-Ludditism crowd.
    I came into this world fighting, screaming and covered in someone else's blood. I have no problem going out the same way.

    I think the logic behind it is that climate change will exacerbate already-existing issues that lead to conflict. (crop yield reduction -> more starvation -> more conflict -> less stability -> DOOOOOOOM)

    I agree "imminent" isn't applicable, although when your clock takes several decades to move three or four minutes, "imminent" is a pretty broad term

    This clock is like one of those limits you heard about in math class - it's always approaching midnight but it never gets there.
