Defending earth

It was interesting to frame an asteroid collision with earth as an analogy for climate change crisis in Don’t look up; but it is apparently a real potential disaster in itself and people at NASA are working on ways to deal with such crisis.

One of the points I learnt from the article is how it was actually difficult to realise there were pieces of rocks being hurled at us because of blindspots. And this mean we can discover them too late, probably in way shorter time frames than what was conceived in the movie.

And of course, if we are willing to spend that investment and work on defending earth from asteroids, let us also work out how to finance all that we need to do to defend earth from climate change as much as possible.
