Why would "aliens" do it exactly? or were you being sarcastic and not serious? Anyway phage is right also,it could makes things worse.In any case an asteroid would more than likely hit the water i would think..What size would it need to be to create a worldwide tsunami type scenario?
I don't think we could stop a GRB...we probably wouldn't even notice it before it was too late.
