The Doomsday Clock has been crying wolf for years. Folks are callus to the alarm. It has little room, but to only inch closer to Midnight.

The doomsday clock has been near midnight for so long that a move closer to midnight would have to be only a slight move. Otherwise it's at midnight. Such a slight move is not really noticed on a clock face.

Being near midnight, all these years, has been like crying wolf. Back during the peace dividend of the 1990s, maybe it should have been at a comfortable margin of hours before midnight.
