QT Planetary Defense Coordination Office

News Headline: “Asteroid passed unusually close to Earth last week.”
That was Asteroid 2017 EA, which QT mentioned as it passed.
Not mentioned in this news story is Asteroid 2017 DS109, which was discovered yesterday as it passed between Earth and the moon.
It is larger than the earlier asteroid.
But at worst, if it had hit, it would have destroyed only, say, NewYork City.
And some buildings in the outer boroughs would be left standing.
Parts of them, anyway.

Meanwhile, in news of this week’s oil spills. . . .

News Headline: “Wind provides half the electricity on a U.S. power grid for first time ever.”
As we stumble on the most important news story of the week that almost no one is paying attention to.

News Headline: “Despite Trump claim, Keystone Pipeline won’t use only U.S. steel.”

And U.S. streams and. . . .
Never accuse President Trump of not putting America first.

U.S. intelligence may want to revisit the concept of “secret.”
