Let’s talk Doomsday Clock. The most recent report indicates that the Doomsday Clock is expected to move closer to midnight as the threat of global annihilation grows.
The so-called Doomsday Clock, which symbolizes the current threat of global annihilation, is expected to be moved closer to midnight by scientists.
The clock is currently running at three minutes to midnight, where 00.00 represents the end of humanity. The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists is expected to move it forward by one minute on Thursday, January 26, 2017. This is the closest it has ever been to the apocalypse since 1953 when the US took the decision to upgrade its nuclear arsenal with the hydrogen bomb (Knapton, 2017).
The scientists warn, “Terrorism involving nuclear or radiological materials remains one of the gravest threats to humanity and to global stability”. Digest all of this while sipping your morning coffee or drink of choice.
Some Preppers, not many, but some assumed that under the new administration that they could relax or back off their prepping somewhat. This is contrary it seems, however, to what is really going on in today’s world.
Well, the clock has moved closer, so do you need to worry, well not worry any more than you did yesterday, the day before that, or worry more than you did last week. The threats are the same, and possibly, just possibly some threats are more likely now than let’s say a year ago.
If your neighborhood, city, or town is reduced to rubble, because of a nuclear detonation or you have to evacuate because a massive chemical or biological attack, you will need all the skill and knowledge you can muster to survive because you will have to literally head for the hills. You need core skills that come natural, and this only happens after hours upon hours of practice, and, you cannot learn on the job either.
Attacks of the kind mentioned above would likely mean you would leave your community, leave your comfort zone. Your skills have to be ingrained, they cannot be so-so, or mediocre they need to be permanently established to the point you can perform them under any conditions, in any environment.
In some cases, there will be other family members’, and friends and even strangers that need your help. Others not as well trained as you, so some of your time will be spent training and explaining and if you are, unsure of yourself because your skills are not as good as they should be you could be in trouble.
The Doomsday Clock is ticking closer to the zero hour, so prepping is not a passing fad that people did during the last administration. Prepping is a lifestyle that is maintained regardless of who is in charge.
