But no one has encapsulated the emotions of these early Trump days more dramatically than a group of scientists, who every year since 1947 determine whether to move the hands of the Doomsday Clock.
Over the course of 2016, the global security landscape darkened as the worldwide community failed to come effectively to grips with humanity's most pressing existential threats, nuclear weapons and climate change, The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists warned.
As a primary reason for moving the clock foward this year, after leaving it at three minutes 'til midnight the last two years, the report cites newly elected President Donald Trump's "ill-considered" and "intemperate" statements about expanding the USA nuclear arsenal, his comments encouraging other countries to acquire nuclear weapons, and his apparent skepticism of climate science.

Since 2007, the Clock has also reflected climate change, global warming and new inventions in the life sciences and technology that could harm humanity leading to the end of human race on the planet.
"But when that person is the new president of the United States, his words matter". That's a half-minute closer to catastrophe than last year and the closest it has been to "doomsday" in 64 years during the Cold War. "It they do not, wise citizens must step forward and lead the way".
