Venerable Space Writer, Leonard David, warns of the dangers of (and apparent lack of governmental planning for) an asteroid strike.
This danger is nothing new. In fact, it's been with us throughout our evolution. Only chance has kept us relatively unscathed. Unless you count the time the human race was reduced to fewer than 10,000 souls (most likely caused by the Toba catastrophe.)
Anyway, David presents a good argument for public involvement. Petition your Congressman, Magistrate, Lord or whatever you have that passes for 'government' to learn more and force legislation to work on an international project to protect the Earth.
After all, it's the only one we have...
