For 70 years The Doomsday Clock has been a symbol which represents the likelihood of a human-caused global catastrophe. In 2017 the election of Donald Trump has made the world a more dangerous place due to the augmented risk of nuclear war and uncontrolled climate change.

It is now two minutes and 30 seconds to midnight.
This post from Lifehacker tells us where to hide in the event of a nuclear disaster. Let's hope we never have to use this newfound information.
