Headline of the day

OK, not technically a headline, but the opening line in an article by the NYT:
THE probability of a nuclear weapon one day going off in an American city cannot be calculated, but it is larger than it was five years ago.

Umm...'kay. I'll ask the obvious: if the probability of something cannot be calculated, then how in the world do you know that the probability is higher now than it was before?
