sigh of fleeting relief

Upon reading today's news, I was relieved to find that the doomsday clock is now 6 whole minutes away from midnight, pushed back last night from 5 minutes. Bleak, but also, somehow, encouraging.

"The Bulletin of Atomic Scientists, which maintains the clock and puts an illustration of it on its cover, attributed the move to efforts by world leaders to reduce their countries' nuclear arsenals and collaborate on climate stabilization."
