A CNN anchor has asked on live television whether a meteor hurtling past Earth might have been caused by global warming.
Deborah Feyeric made the faux pas when she transitioned from a discussion about global warming and the blizzard that struck to east coast into a a segment about Asteroid 2012 DA14 - which is projected to pass just 17,200 miles from Earth on Friday.
'We want to bring in our science guy, Bill Nye, and talk about something else thats falling from the sky, and that is an asteroid,' Feyerick says. 'Whats coming our way? Is this the effect of, perhaps, global warming? Or is this just some meteoric occasion?'
Nye, who has an engineering degree from Cornell University, tries to cut Feyerick off before she even finishes asking the question.
'No, no, no,' he says.
For a moment, he fumbles to answer the ridiculous question.

Why not, I believe Bill Nye’s degrees are primarily in broadcasting.
You mean both of them? Makes sense and explains a lot.
Because the gods are angry at us humans.
Feyerick has a Bachelor of Arts in English literature from Columbia University. In her spare time, she likes to write about life as a working mom. She speaks French and once delivered a cow while on assignment.
The bow tie threw me.
As far as I can tell, Bill Nye only has a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering and worked at Boeing on minor improvements to hydraulic systems.
But I guess this qualifies him to speak about Climate Scientology*...
*Scientology and AGW are very similar religions.
Next, they’ll say the only way to stop the meteor from striking the Earth is to raise the debt ceiling.
Anything in that bio about being able to open a beer can with her chin???
That would be the only “logical” explanation, since a meteor is independent of the climate of the earth.
I would have liked to have heard “the science guy” ask her what cause/effect relationship was in her mind on this one.
I follow Joe Bastardi on twitter. He says Bill Nye is a nice enough guy but that doesn’t excuse the fact that he’s a charlatan who promotes false climate science.
He's a COMEDIAN, folks.
Why does she remind me of a Vicks cough drop?
Just another low information media talking head spewing out the daily BS to the low information DemocRat voter.
Nye is a COMEDIAN who promotes false climate science.
Maybe global warming is causing a lowering of the IQ of CNN anchors.
LOL!!! Now that you mention it.
and of course there must be a sacrifice.
SUV’s personal transportation, lawn mowers, barbecue grills, et cetera. (note: voting Republican does not cause global warming or climate change)
We KNOW reporters have low IQ’s...the story here is that people take COMEDIAN Bill ‘Speed Walker’ Nye as a science consultant. Watch the clip at post #15...it’s really pretty funny.
My favorite was the skit about peoples brains leaking out of the holes in the back of our head.
Almost Live was a VERY funny show.
About 7,453 years, five months, and eleven days ago, a mouse farted in the Sahara Desert, and now I have a damned hangnail today!
Delivered a cow? Was that door-to-door sales, where she had to close the deal herself, or did she simply deliver it like UPS?
Inquiring minds want to know. What a way to work your way through college ....
Does anyone ever catch up to these news people in the hallway and inform them of their errors?
“She speaks French and once delivered a cow while on assignment”
Gee, If that doesn’t qualify a person for a Journalism award there is no justice. /s/
What would we do without the sun? Thats a thought for everyone. Blazing hot on all sides round. Burning on, until its gone.
Another clueless mouthpiece for Comedy News Network displays her total lack of basic knowledge. CNN is Exhibit A in the dumbing down of America.

Actually the giant vacuum between her ears is sucking the meteor towards earth.
Agreed. The sketch above with COMEDIAN Bill Nye as 'Speed Walker' is hysterical...the theme from the opening of 'Superman III' playing as Nye searches the stadium for the bomb...the Michael Keaton parody at the two-minute mark: 'Who are you???"..."I'm Speed Walker" as he pitches the mad bomber off the roof of the Kingdome. ROTFLMAO!
The REAL story here is that someone at CNN (not Comedy Central, CNN) 'green lit' this interview in the FIRST place. Brain-dead journalist interviews comedian with delusions of grandeur about asteroids and global warming? CNN should issue an on-air apology.
Another skull full of mush that’s turned to cottage cheese.
Deborah’s been playing in the CNN row boat again.
Bil Nye “the Science Guy” hasn’t worked in science or engineering for well over 20 years.
He has been an entertainer almost twice as long as he was an engineer. As best as I can tell, he has a job because he wears a bow tie and his last name rhymes with “Guy”.
Too bad Bill Nye “the Useful Liberal Idiot Guy” isn’t as catchy.
Global warming also caused the Big Bang.
Global warming if it were happening is a godsend.....want a night mare?....can you say ice age???
VERY! And at a time when SNL was its worst (and hasn’t changed since).
Almost Live should have gone national. ‘Loved the Greatful Dead Travel Agency- “The thrill of eating unliscensed food.”; & “Worst Girlfiend in the World.”

She literally “had a cow”... hmmm...
I don’t think raising the debt ceiling would actually cause the asteroid to miss, but if it were sufficiently reinforced you might be able to shelter under it.
“Deb, asterrhoids are responsible for the ring around Uranus.”
Bill Nye, science guy at large
“Fascinating. Absolutely fascinating, doctor.”
Deborah `Spock’ Feyeric, CNN
Pat Gray on the Glenn Beck show did his Algore shtick:
“Well, you must realize, Deborah, that increased carbon dioxide levels in the upper atmosphere are a direct result of man-caused global warming, which causes an increase of magnetic intensity in the Van Allen radiation belts which is capable of skewing the trajectory of a passing asteroid, I mean, Deborah, this possibility simply cannot be ruled out!”
Looks like The Night of the Long Faces to me. What’s this about Kim Kardashian needing an “emergency divorce”?
CNN can get away with on-air 'talent' that's 'dumber den da bed post' as long as they're talking politics... Liberals are proud of not thinking or debating ideas - they just 'believe'... You know - 'ignorant and proud of it' types... And it works - until something like this happens.
Then we all get a good laugh at CNN and wonder why anyone trusts them on anything ...
Well if the meteor is big enough it will cause global warming. So there is a link kind of.
A COW MAY be having an offspring, but she would have been delivering a CALF!!!
I have delivered FOALS from my horse mares, but nothing else.
Is there no common sense in America any more?
Seems the stupider you are, the more money you get paid.
Delivered a cow what?
