30 Seconds Closer to Midnight

It is now two and a half minutes to midnight. For the first time in the 70-year history of the Doomsday Clock, the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists’ Science and Security Board has moved the hands of the iconic clock 30 seconds closer to midnight. In another first, the Board has decided to act, in part, based on the words of a single person: Donald Trump, the new President of the United States.
The decision to move the hands of the Doomsday Clock is made by the Science and Security Board of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists in consultation with the Bulletin’s Board of Sponsors, which includes 15 Nobel Laureates. The Science and Security Board’s full statement about the Clock is available online.
Just wanna make a note that we've been closer to destruction than this. Back in 1953, the United States tested the Hydrogen bomb. This caused the clock to move to two minutes until a doomsday.
I honestly do not know more about this topic and it's a little confusing to me. I mean, how can they know that we are very close to destroying ourselves.
What do you think. Should we be buying Potassium Iodide pills just to be safe? Or just put bags over our heads and lay down?
