My question is, how is this even possible? ONE THOUSAND atomic bombs in 1908, etc etc?
But if an asteroid can hit us with the power of 1,000 atomic bombs, and leave NO fatalities... I don't understand how that's possible.
And finally, this magazine I'm reading says "500 kilotons of TNT, 1,000 Atomic Bombs, 1 Nuclear Bomb" etc. Are Nuclear bombs more powerful than Atomic bombs? I always assumed they were the same thing, ha ha. I'm probably wrong.

The only thing that would be more violent, would be if the Yellowstone area decided that today is the day to release the magma based fury underneath the ground there. That would be good night sweet heart for most things on the planet.
