Re: Countries at risk from asteroid strike

"on the basis that the size of their populations would mean millions of deaths" that right there indicates the inaccuracy of the 'study' and proves your point about funding.
The chances of impact are due to area, thus countries like China, Mongolia, Canada, etc... are MUCH more likely to be hit.
Nevertheless, as you very well appointed, it will most probably strike the ocean.
Then it will be the end of the dinosaurs, assuming it strikes near the parliament.
