I'm hoping for a chemist to come by and find the precipitate.

Nukes are great at destroying asteroids! Far, far away from Earth. I thought the dangers of destroying NEAs with nukes were too obvious to bring up, but Im also brain dead today (it took me 20 minutes to write two paragraphs and I got sent home after being informed my 3 hours of work counted as OT anyway.)

After considering all of the constructive criticism it seems like (5) and (6) went a bit overboard.

Only alternative to nuking everything that came up was shortening species reproduction cycle proposed by CNO. I'm really not sure if that's viable either, since raising child benefits for nonhuman species high enough would surely cause a huge public outcry. It also wouldn't use up all the nukes.

Anyway, it's still worth a try, since alternative is most of species dying out. We should have some of the technology required already developed for the meat industry. Can't you just spray growth hormones everywhere? There's no way that could backfire.
