Say No to Asteroids

There is a big anti-asteroid editorial in the New York Times today. There really is! It is full of sentences like "A decade or so ahead of an expected impact, we would need to ram a hunk of copper or lead into an asteroid in order to slightly change its velocity." The guy also keeps hinting that we will all be wiped out by an asteroid if we don't do what he says.
