Why? Think of all the nuclear facilities and their fuel rods running dry.
Earth doesnt have a snowballs chance in hell to survive even a modest event.
I hate these religious fanatic posts ...
The danger that life on earth, and especially humanoid life, faces. Is cold, and hunger ... and it is by far more important to keep the heat up, than
close all facilities, because you think God is going to punish us.
There is no God.
Secondly, Chernobyl is thriving ... wild life there, is thriving wildly, and is not having any problems. That applies to birds, grass, trees, and
other predators. Chernobyl is a test site, now ... it is a site, we know to be contaminated heavily, and we are sitting there with live cameras to
see how it evolves.
And what we see, is that there is no problem at all ... the problem of paranoid religious fanatics, is far greater than any threat we face, from
nuclear, or extra terrestrial origin. And that is not merely a threat of bombings, but a threat of "iranifying" countries.
Iff there are asteroids and comets out there, they have been orbitting the sun and the planets for billions of years, and if they haven't hit it by
now, they are unlikely to do so in the future. For anything to happen, you need a different event ... like the galaxies colliding, that would put
things out of balance ... the only objects that can hit us, are objects that are so small that their path can be easily altered by nearby objects
Others are no threat ... and never will be.
