Back on 9 Oct, when No. Korea tested a small nuclear device, I openly wondered if the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists would seek to move the hands of the Doomsday Clock.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Officials of the Bulletin plan a news conference on Wednesday to announce the official change. While they have not specifically announced which way the clock will move, they have said the move is in response to worsening nuclear threats from weapons programs. They also cited global warming as a cause for nuclear technology proliferation.

Use of the Doomsday Clock is, of course, symbolic. One can only hope that someone will pay attention.
