Details of where money would best be spent would be worked out by an international committee modelled on the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, which advises politicians on global warming.Lemmie guess. By the way, Indonesia, ANSWER THE FRIGGIN PHONE NEXT TIME!
They should call the system SPACEGUARD, after a similar project described in a novel by Sir Arthur C. Clarke.
Nice to see the Brits stepping up to the plate on this one.
Hey -- they could even have a rapid-response rescue team of marionettes!
We need a whole lot more than a glorified alarm system to protect us from asteroids and supervolcanos, but I guess this is a good first baby step..
Now if only they could launch a rocket into space by themselves, we would have something here.
try this: EUSDI
With Jacques Chirac telling them they are in a rendezvous with destiny.
That's true, apparently warning everybody does not correlate with saving everybody. Warning us that earth will be split in two by an asteroid next Monday probably wouldn't do us a lot of good.
I seem to see two familiar faces here in this peaceful nuke reactor (Later blown to smitherines, to their dismay).
Who is going to protect them from Islamic invasion from within?
More would be trampled in the chaos than by all but the truly word disaster events.
OK... so I've got this plan... first we buy five billion pagers....
The Brits can't even save us from endless versions of Dr. Who, but they're going to save us from asteroids?
"Here I come to save the daaaaaaaaaaaaaay!!"
Are you sure the guy in the center didn't have something to do with it? He's having a good laugh over something.
THUNDERBIRDS ARE GO!
The name for it? SCREWTHE TAXPAYER
I need new glasses, first time I read the post I thought it said " Quacks and Steriods "
Geez, they didn't bother with ANY of that crap in Moonraker.
maybe the laser will protect us
This thread will self destruct in 5 seconds.
...a warning system. Hmmm.
So how will Britain save the world from the earthquakes and asteroids--by withering them with an attitude of royal superiority and condescension?
WOW....Europe has changed!
