CNN anchor suggests meteor hurtling toward Earth could be a result of global warming
ukmail ^ | 2 12 13

Posted on 02/12/2013 7:40:55 AM PST by InvisibleChurch

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 that’s falling from the sky, and that is an asteroid,' Feyerick says. 'What’s 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.

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.

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.

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.

For crying out loud, people...'Bill Nye, Science Guy' had its origins as a COMEDY SKETCH on Seattle's 'Almost Live!' COMEDY program back in the early 90's...how about Bill Nye as SUPERHERO 'Speed Walker'; saving Seattle's Kingdome from a 'mad bomber'. Click here, and you will never take Bill Nye seriously again as long as you live.

He's a COMEDIAN, folks.

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.

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 ....

The source of global warming is the sun, and it won't last forever.

What would we do without the sun? That’s a thought for everyone. Blazing hot on all sides round. Burning on, until it’s gone.

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.

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.

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.

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!”

A CNN anchor has asked on live television whether a meteor hurtling past Earth might have been caused by global warming.

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 ...
