Parody or Does She Believe It? CNN Anchor Blames Asteroid on Global Warming

Parody or Does She Believe It? CNN Anchor Blames Asteroid on Global Warming By Brent Baker Created 02/09/2013 - 5:41pm

CNN anchor Deb Feyerick asked Saturday afternoon if an approaching asteroid, which will pass by Earth on February 15, “is an example of, perhaps, global warming?”

Moments earlier, before an ad break, she segued from the Northeast blizzard to a segment with Bill Nye “the science guy,” by pointing to global warming: “Every time we see a storm like this lately, the first question to pop into a lot of people’s minds is whether or not global warming is to blame? I’ll talk to Bill Nye, ‘the science guy,’ about devastating storms and climate change.”

Audio: MP3 clip

She never got to that question in the subsequent interview at about 3:25 PM EST during CNN Newsoom, instead transitioning from a snowfall update: “Talk about something else that’s falling from the sky and that is an asteroid. What’s coming our way? Is this an effect of, perhaps, of global warming or is this just some meteoric occasion?”

Nye resisted confirming her hypothesis.

Nye resisted confirming her hypothesis.

A real scientist would have so thoroughly debunked it that she's be too embarrassed to ever suggest it again.

Of course it is; asteroids are tired of the bone-chilling cold of outer space. They want to go anywhere it's warm, or warming up. Expect to see more of them in these parts.

You know, Ms Feyerick, that the earth is essentially a molten planet with a very thin crust moving about its surface? There’s a much more thin atmosphere on that crust and a thin layer of water on that crust too. Do you think that perhaps the earth’s composition is important, too, along with the effect of that asteroid?

University of Michigan scientists have claimed that global warming causes an increased risk of asteroids striking the Earth, due to expansion of the atmosphere outward into space making the Earth a bigger "target".

On the contrary, a Box o' rocks is at least useful (boat anchor, garden decoration).

Why, yes. Yes, asteroids are caused by global warming! And, if you’re raising your kids to be as monumentally ignorant and poorly-educated as Deb Feyerick, your child, too, may grow up to be a national cable news anchor.

“I was only kidding” seems to be one if the more common things liberals say when called on their absurdities. I suppose when your entire world view is based upon absurdities there must be a frequent need to claim you were only kidding. I’d love to ask one of these “intellectuals” why they think the measured temperate on Mars seems to be rising. I’m guessing there would be some reference to SUVs.

She was obviously hired for her face, not her brains.

Here’s how it works. Earth gets warmer causing air in heads to expand, putting pressure on what remains of brains, causing air to rush out through mouth.

First question you have to ask yourself is she really so stupid that she actually believes global warming causes asteroids to hit the earth. It’s possible she is that stupid, but I don’t believe it. I think it was a deliberate attempt to plant the seed in peoples minds (especially young kids) that global warming really does cause asteroids to hit the earth. Scaremongering. They claim global warming is responsible for absolutely everything,,,so why not asteroid impacts? And just a few weeks ago a CNN meteorologist claimed the Arctic is ice free right now.

“the measured temperate on Mars seems to be rising.”

It is caused by the emissions from the Curiosity-that might even be worse than an SUV, especially since it has now drilled into the surface of the planet for the first time...

Are there really people who are not familiar with the words “orbit” and “gravity”, and do they not know how those two things affect the movement of objects in space? I’m not an astronomer, or an astrophysicist, but that seems like a no-brainer...

And that's just the point, isn't it? Nye is a liberal propagandist, not a real scientist, although he plays one on TV and fools millions of people. Your comment about the new Dark Age is correct and on point.

Ever read "The Marching Morons" by C.M. Kornbluth? It's not an exact analog of the current situation but close enough to be very scary. We're well on the way to becoming an Idiocracy.

People used to believe in fairies and leprechauns. Until we gained wisdom and put foolish beliefs behind us.

Now it’s come full circle and foolishness is making a comeback. Knowledge and reason are cast aside. I fear the Dark Ages will return.

“The new dark ages are upon us.”

I have been worried that the end of the world was coming soon. But somewhere in the Bible it says that in the end times knowledge will increase. I guess we’re good to go for awhile.

Increased solar activity could both warm the earth and produce a stronger solar wind that pushes the asteroid closer, right?

It just seems like a standard CNN knee-jerk response to me.

#1 - It's Bush's fault

If that isn't appropriate go to -

#2 - It must be caused by Global Warming (updated to “Climate Change”)

The above two liberal responses cover all cases...:^)
