The United Nations is discussing an international response to near-Earth object impact concerns. Do you think more of an international cooporation is required for such an event?

We don't need international cooperation. We can just scream and shake our fist at the sky. It worked for my grandfather; it'll work for my granddaughter.
 
Since an asteroid could devastate any nation, yes I think they should all chip in the money and technology. Or just ask China since they've hacked every nation's technology.

If NASA were to announce that a killer asteroid was going to hit the Earth 20 years from now. I can guarantee you that after 18 years half of the nations would be debating about who should step in & pay for the costs to stop it, and the other half would deny it & claim it was all a hoax.
Sounds familiar?
 
Well, perhaps we could contribute according to the size of the country: Russia, China, Canada, USA, who's next? 
 
+David P. Doherty wouldn't it be fairer to base contribution according to GDP? or do you want India to pay more than Monte Carlo? ;)
