ISON broke up going around the SUN, if anything survived it they are rocky pieces. They are not heading toward Earth, the pieces would stay on the same trajectory as ISON was......headed out into interstellar space, never to return.

“if anything survived it they are rocky pieces. “

Wasn’t Ison mostly ice? I am not worried about whatever rocks are left.

We shall see.
In the breakup, as those large pieces of a well over 5 miles in diameter comet come apart, trajectories change.
The gravitational pull of Venus, our moon, and our Earth, all tug on those pieces and affect their destination.
Think you safe?
Be prepared.
What is the impact energy of a piece traveling well over 300,000 miles per hour?
They're changing terminology from "Meteorite Shower" to "Meteorite Storm".

How man "rocks" does it take, to make up a comet well lover 5 miles in size?
How small do you think those remaining "rocks" are?

Astronomers estimated that the original Comet Shoemaker–Levy 9 ( formally designated D/1993 F2 ) may have had a nucleus up to 5 km (3.1 mi) across .
Astronomers estimated that the visible fragments of SL9 ranged in size from a few hundred metres to two kilometres across.
21 distinct impacts were observed, with the largest coming on July 18 at 07:33 UTC when fragment G struck Jupiter.
This impact created a giant dark spot over 12,000 km across, and was estimated to have released an energy equivalent to 6,000,000 megatons of TNT (600 times the world's nuclear arsenal).[17]

Now since Comet Ison is estimated to be on slightly smaller than Comet Shoemaker–Levy 9 was, WHY WOULDN'T THE DAMAGE (if it breaks up) BE ANY DIFFERENT ?
And if Comet Ison breaks up, can we expect its path to change, given the extra venting gases created by more surface areas to be heated up ?
And would the breaking up of Comet Ison speed up or slow down the shattered pieces velocity on its continued path out away from the Sun?
Or would it totally change the exit point in its slingshot around the Sun to widen the orbit out ?

How would a crushed Comet Ison compare to the Tunguska event or the space rock that carved Meteor Crater in Arizona ?

The Tunguska event was an enormously powerful explosion that occurred near the Podkamennaya Tunguska River in what is now Krasnoyarsk Krai, Russia, at about 07:14 KRAT (00:14 UT) on June 30 [O.S. June 17], 1908.[1][2][3]
The explosion, having the epicentre (60.886°N, 101.894°E), is believed to have been caused by the air burst of a small asteroid or comet at an altitude of 5–10 kilometres (3–6 mi) above Earth's surface.
Different studies have yielded widely varying estimates of the object's size, on the order of 60 m (200 ft) to 190 m (620 ft).[4]
It is the largest impact event on or near Earth in recorded history.
(It is classified as an impact even though the asteroid or comet is believed to have burst in the air rather than hitting the surface.)[5]

The space rock that carved Meteor Crater in Arizona -- 570 feet deep and 4,100 feet (1.25 kilometers) across -- was blown into existence 50,000 years ago by an asteroid roughly 130 feet (40 meters) wide.

So, like Comet Shoemaker–Levy 9,
WHY shouldn't we worry about the possibilities of the damage the rubble from Comet Ison could do to our World,
if not on this pass, then on the next return trip into our orbit (who know how many years from now) ?

I found these videos that have very good information from the Deep Impact Discovery Mission to Comet Tempel 1 and I thought they might be worth our time.

Orbital mechanics.
That’s why.
It isn’t heading our way at all.
Cometary debris streams follow defined paths.
That is how meteor showers are predicted and defined.
The debris streams tend to stay in predictable locations.
Right now we are entering two streams, quadrantids and geminids.

How wide was the "V" pattern of Ison as it left the Sun?
What makes you think that I ask again,

No, they aren’t over 5 miles in diameter. How does a 1.5 km diameter comet, turn into pieces that are 5 miles in diameter?

The only gravity that matters is when ISON sling-shot around the sun breaking up, the pieces still travel in the same direction ISON was going. Nothing was there to knock it off course.

Well ISON is supposed to pass directly over the North Pole, 41 million miles straight up.

And the last pictures of it show a debris trail twice the width of the sun, so about 1.5 million miles.

But ISON still has 80 million miles to go to reach us, and the 1.5 million mile debris trail is expanding like a shotgun blast.

So the big question is, how wide will it spread?

Not wide enough to be a threat to earth.
Plus, space is a very large place.
Ison would have to violate physics to be a threat.
We are more threatened by November omega orionids than by the debris of ison.

Again, not wide enough to be a threat.
That v you are talking about is mostly volatiles.
A big yawn burger.
The dust likewise is a mostly yawnburger.
Look at the current November omega orionids.
They are a debris stream from a cometary source.
They are..a yawnburger.
Shows up real nice on radar.
But pathetic visually.
And that v ain’t aimed at us at all.
And won’t come anywhere near us.
Www.spaceweather.com for meteor shower info.

ISON or whatever is left of it IS NEVER EVER COMING BACK. IT DOESN’T HAVE AN ORBIT. It is HEADING OUT INTO INTERSTELLAR SPACE. Its trajectory cannot have changed, it is moving too fast, it sling-shot around the sun. ISON is/was moving at 151,088 mph. The only thing that could change its trajectory is a collision with another object going as fast. The trajectory is well established, it’s never coming back. ISON orbits nothing, unlike Halley’s comet which orbits our sun. There is nothing to worry about.

You really need to keep up.
As it got closer to the Sun, the Sun's gravitation pull causer it to speed up.

I am caught up..... that is how fast the comet would be moving right now, if it’s there. The hubble will be trying to locate it if it wasn’t completely vaporized in the next few weeks....and no it and none of its debris is going to come anywhere near Earth.

41 million miles is almost halfway to the SUN, ISON is no threat. You would get a better reception over at abovetopsecret.com. You’re a long time member of FR and I don’t really want to call you a kook, but you’re posting youtube videos of doom-porn. It is slightly irritating. You can research real science for yourself and understand orbital physics, space physics, comets, meteors, debris, trajectory, etc.

I have discovered that my best source of reliable information comes from an Electrical Engineer, retired and with lots of Scientists for friends.
I highly recommend you keep up and follow BPEarthWatch.
Like any human being, he occasionally makes mistakes, but very seldom.
He's much more dependable about telling us the truth, over the garbage NASA is trying to sell us.
