Listen to Nye's answer to the question. HE DOESN'T DENY THAT THE ASTEROID THAT WILL PASS THE EARTH ON FRIDAY WAS CAUSED BY GLOBAL WARMING!!! And this is the medias go-to guy on science matters.

Speechless.

The Left equates science and “reason” over God, yet when it comes to promoting an agenda, they’ll skew and destroy science and “reason” to make some natural event fit a narrative.

It’s a freaking hunk of rock from the nascent period in our solar system that’s likely been floating around our solar neighborhood longer than any of us have been around. GLOBAL warming, just by its name alone, is only GLOBAL. It’s not celestial or universal, it’s GLOBAL.

Space is actually quite cold. The closer you get to a star, the hotter it gets. I know preschoolers who have a better understanding of celestial event than this yutz “journalist.”

Just heard about this on Rush Limbaugh’s show. I had to laugh when Rush got quite full of himself, when criticizing Mr. Obama’s photo op with the doctors at the White House some years ago. As Rush was explaining how the President had the MDs dress in coats, he misspoke and said the docs. were wearing “hospital gowns”.

Here’s the “science guy” blaming the snowstorm that just hit the northeast on global warming,,,and saying that global warming will cause northern hemisphere storms to start spinning in the opposite direction they do now. Wow.

The CNN anchor about sums up the SOCIALIST LEFTS understanding of global warming. To the DEMOCRATIC FRAUDS everything causes global warming. Everything the far left does propagandizes global warming because it offers the key to their NIRVANA of bigger government, more taxes and redistribution of wealth.

This was a disaster for Nye. H was there to pimp for more government grants to his phony baloney organization. Instead everyone in the country is laughing at the both of them.

Hey, CNN...here's your 'science consultant' right here saving Seattle's 'Kingdome' from a bomb back in the 90's.

Bill Nye...Science Guy AND 'super hero'! (Does anyone remember that 'Bill Nye, Science Guy' was a COMEDY sketch that ran on 'Almost Live!' back in the 90's???)

Unless the Earth itself reverses rotational direction, that will never happen.

Ever.

A real scientist (even a believer like Nye) would have simply said “No, global warming only effects things within our atmosphere”.

I myself would have said “No, and that question shows the pure idiocy of the whole global warming argument’.

Before fracking was so wildly unpopular, Gore and some of his minions tried to blame earthquakes (and volcanic eruptions)on global warming. It just didn’t go over too well. So they stopped. For now.

I watched a cable show last night about the universe - how it was probably created, how it has evolved, and how it might end ...

The section on evolution included asteroid strikes on the earth. They were left over from the Big Bang and are influenced by GRAVITY, timing, and bad luck. NO mention of GLOBAL WARMING attracting asteroids towards the earth ...

‘Course the host was NOT a CNN-certified expert ...

Lemmee see if I can remember the “un-certified” schmuck’s name ... oh yeah, some doofus named STEPHEN HAWKING ...

Someone on another site listened to the same video and claim Nye quickly said “no, no” (while she was still talking) to her question before he went on about everything else. I listened to it again and couldn’t hear/pick out the “no, no.”

Maybe he said “no, no” to her asking if it was just another “meteoric event,” because then he immdeiately started talking about meteors and meteorology before he started talking about the asteroid itself.

Meteorology and meteors are not the same thing, and if that’s the corollary the leftists are making, they’re digging themselves deeper into the idiot hole.

Meteorology is the study of weather (meteor translates to “something aloft”), while meteors are chunks of rocks (meteoroids) that burn up on entry into our atmosphere.

*sigh*

Words DO have meaning, despite what Obama might say.

Of course he didn’t deny it, because he knew that the airhead was making a joke. Of course, if she actually WAS serious, then she shouldn’t be broadcasting.

I really wish someone would compile an exhaustive list of every high-profile incident of a leftist just completely stepping in it.

Whether it’s something like this where they think stellar events are somehow caused by man (these things are on a scale we can’t even imagine!)...

...or some idiot thinking that too many Marines on a small S. Pacific island will cause it to tip over...

...or the hypocrisy of the electrical car that requires the generation of power by a plant most likely powered by coal...

...or the absolute hilarity of windmills cutting endangered fowl to bits...

...or the cadre of armed security surrounding leftist anti-gunners, or the...

... you get the point.

“or the hypocrisy of the electrical car that requires the generation of power by a plant most likely powered by coal...”

or the STUPIDITY of claiming that by using a phlorescent light bulb you will be saving oil or generating less CO2, when (a) power plants do not use oil as their fuel and (b) though some power use natural gas, and some use coal the output of the power plants of anyone’s local electricity provider, that is burning natural gas or coal (if they are), is not lowered simply because some residential users are consuming a little less electricity with their light bulbs..; thus no actual change in CO2 creation comes from using phlorescent light bulbs; your personal change in YOUR need for electricity does not change the power output of any electricity plant, and does not change its fuel. But the chattering masses believe the swill about phlorescent light bulbs.
