Quote of the Day: Frying the Planet Is Okay As Long As We Protect It From Asteroids

From Andrew Stuttaford, complaining about liberal spending priorities:

We waste a fortune on measures (that will have no impact for decades, if ever) to tamper with the climate. Some of that money would be better spent on asteroid insurance.

I can't really come up with anything witty to say about this. I just wanted to save it for posterity in case someone decides to run a contest at the end of the year or something.
