Glenn Harlan Reynolds:
Asteroids a reminder of space program weakness
... nobody knows whether a massive asteroid is heading toward Earth next week or next century, the events of Asteroid Friday should serve as a wake-up call to us all. We're at the bottom of a well, and somebody is throwing rocks. Shouldn't we do something about it?
How about this: let's take all the money we waste (tens of billions of $ so far) on the global warming hoax and spend it on our space program, with an emphasis on protecting us from catastrophic meteor strikes.
Let's use our resources to protect us from actual risks, instead of lining the pockets of Al Gore.
