You do wonder what we are waiting for to build a system to detonate these things up in space before they come down to smash us.

This thing was only 100 yards across, the asteroid which ended the dinosaurs' reign was only seven miles across. That asteroid wouldn't last long under a single nuclear warhead, let alone a barrage of them.

I don't think it is necessarily political to discuss the possibility and desirability of building such a system. Anyone on board with this?

I thought it for a long time, we are prisoners of our own technology.
But at the same time, this technology can be our salvation.
The choice is up to us.

My above statement in a more pessimistic composition:
Our technology will be our doom.

I don't think nuclear blasts are necessary. If you can detect them early enough, land a rocket on it and start pushing it off course for some hours or days. Even a relatively small push, should nudge it a few degrees out of a collision course, but you need to do it as early as possible. After all, earth is pretty small, easy to miss

Yes, this is the key factor.

As for me, shocking in this whole matter, there is no complete consensus on global warming is caused by mankind only, and how long will it evolve?
A stone bullet exactly points could end this debate.
We have all means to prevent this cause.
And then we have a further opportunity to discuss this.
Let me add, as I read, the earth orbits near the inside border of habitability zone.
Hence there is only a small leap of Venus-like Hell.
So it's a real intimidation.

That we can understand and duplicate "SOME OF THE NATURE´S BEHAVIOR", doesn´t mean that we can control, modify or even avoid what Mother Natures dictate. We are waaaaay to infimum.

At least that´s what I think.
