The following report is from 2002 maybe some of you have seen it I suggest you click the full report link to read the full report. note the wording

The U.S. federal government is summoning the world's top scientists to an urgent conference this summer to plan defenses against an attack that could
wipe out an American city or disrupt the whole country's infrastructure.
No, it's not global terrorism.
The scientists will map ways to combat an asteroid attack, a cosmic sucker punch like the collision that killed the dinosaurs 65 million years ago and

heads together and come up with some scenarios that could be used to thwart such a series of impacts.
Ok lets say there are 602 meteor/asteroids headed right for us and are moving at over 20,000 MPH, the average size is 1.5 kilometer. We have 100 days
to plan something what can we do?
