Who’s Afraid of Asteroid Strikes? By Brian Simpson
Mike Adam’s sites are featuring an article which quotes astrophysicist Dr Alan Fitzsimons at the Queen University Belfast Astrophysics Research Centre, who says that there is a disturbing probability that an asteroid strike could wipe out the human race. There are millions of large Near Earth asteroids, many as big as 10-story buildings out in orbit, capable of impacting with the Earth: http://collapse.news/2017-06-28-astrophysicist-warns-humanity-will-eventually-be-wiped-out-by-an-asteroid-strike-just-a-matter-of-time.html.
In January 2017, asteroid 2017 BX passed by the Earth without any threat of collision. But, in November 2016, there was a narrow miss between the Earth and the asteroid 2016 VA, missing the Earth by only 77,00 kilometres, which is not much in cosmological terms, a bee’s whisker. In 2013, another small asteroid exploded over the city of Chelyabinsk in Russia, causing extensive damage. An air-burst asteroid exploded over Tunguska in Russia in Siberia in 1908, exploding with the energy equivalent of 185 Hiroshima bombs. So, it happens.
The kicker is that data from nuclear warning networks has indicated that the Earth has received 3-10 times the number of atomic-level impacts than previously thought. Here, for your reading pleasure is the key segments from a report at https://phys.org/news/2014-04-astronauts-reveal-sobering-asteroid-impacts.html:
“…our planet has experienced many more large-scale asteroid impacts over the past decade than previously thought… three to ten times more, in fact. A new visualization of data from a nuclear weapons warning network, to be unveiled by B612 Foundation CEO Ed Lu during the evening event at Seattle’s Museum of Flight, shows that “the only thing preventing a catastrophe from a ‘city-killer’ sized asteroid is blind luck.”
Since 2001, 26 atomic-bomb-scale explosions have occurred in remote locations around the world, far from populated areas, made evident by a nuclear weapons test warning network. In a recent press release B612 Foundation CEO Ed Lu states:
“This network has detected 26 multi-kiloton explosions since 2001, all of which are due to asteroid impacts. It shows that asteroid impacts are NOT rare—but actually 3-10 times more common than we previously thought. The fact that none of these asteroid impacts shown in the video was detected in advance is proof that the only thing preventing a catastrophe from a ‘city-killer’ sized asteroid is blind luck.”
If we had a social credit economy humanity would have the funds to find all of these doomsday rocks, and without it, it is only a matter of time before the human race dies. Is that an argument for economic reform, or what!
