Running the 'Doomsday Clock' is a full-time job. Really.


By Doug Criss, CNN

... The Bulletin's 12 staff members help scientists and scholars to do more than just track nuclear threats to the planet, they also keep up with the threats posed by climate change and emerging technology. They put out an award-winning digital subscription journal which publishes every other month, they maintain a public-access website that draws about 250,000 visitors a month ...

The Doomsday Clock is by far the biggest moneymaking fraud perpetrated by the dullest, loneliest, most avoided men on this planet, The Atomic Scientist. They actually have the nerve to solicit donations. https://fas.org/
I was going to get into this hoax much more but they're so irrelevant I'll just leave everybody in Desteeland with this.


Be mindful to not conflate the organizational relationship between the (BOA) Bulletin of Atomic Scientists and the (FAS) Federation of American(re-branded from Atomic) Scientists, however, both are, not-for-profit 501 (c) (3)'s ...

Since 1987, the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists has published the Nuclear Notebook, an authoritative accounting of world nuclear arsenals compiled by top experts from the Federation of American Scientists. Today, it is prepared by Hans M. Kristensen and Robert S. Norrisof FAS. The Nuclear Notebook is housed at Taylor & Francis Online, home of our digital journal. Because of its importance to researchers, governments, and citizens around the world, the Nuclear Notebook is always free-to-access.

Irrelevant you say above, yet below, you rely on their assessment contained in the calculation you provided ...

... ... Since this death scenario was brought up the one issue that has been beat to death and I will address here is just how many real nuclear warheads would it take to completely decimate, eliminate or evaporate every human on Earth within 1 millisecond. 1,241,166 B83 (1.2KT) heavy duty warheads.

Here's the link source containing the above information:

How Many Nukes Will It Really Take to Instantly Annihilate Humanity?


Jesus Diaz


...The first part of the graphic—created by David McCandless—shows how much space is actually used by the entire population. According to the Guardian Datablog and the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists, only 12.5% of the planet's surface is actually occupied by humans. A total of 18,617,500 square kilometers.

... As you can see, we need 123.36 times the amount of nukes available today: 10,227 nukes vs 1,241,166 nukes needed to completely disintegrate every single one of us in a millisecond.

How One Nuclear Skirmish Could Wreck The Planet
AUTHOR: DAVE MOSHER
SCIENCE

... Researchers described the results during a panel Feb. 18 at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, calling it “a real bummer” that such a localized nuclear war could bring the modern world to its knees.
“This is tremendously dangerous,” said environmental scientist Alan Robock of Rutgers University, one of the climate scientists presenting at the meeting; “The climate change would be unprecedented in human history, and you can imagine the world ... would just shut down” ...

This Nuclear Bomb Map Shows What Would Happen if One Exploded Near You
It even accounts for weather


DAVE MOSHER, BUSINESS INSIDER
21 SEP 2017

Imagine that a 150-kiloton nuclear bomb exploded in the city closest to you; do you know how the city, surrounding region, and its inhabitants would be affected?
If you can't think of much more than "a lot of people would die," you're not alone.

According to Nukemap's casualty estimator, however, this blast would still kill about 130,000 people and injure 280,000 over the next 24 hours, the tool notes that this does not include radioactive fallout effects, among other caveats ...

National Security
Pentagon unveils new nuclear weapons strategy, ending Obama-era push to reduce U.S. arsenal

By Paul Sonne

... Trump’s perceived volatility has raised more concerns among Americans about the president’s exclusive authority to order a nuclear attack. His warning last summer that he would unleash “fire and fury like the world has never seen” on North Korea marked a rare public threat by a U.S. president to use nuclear weapons.
