CNN Anchor Blames Asteroid on Global Warming
NewsBusters ^

Posted on 02/09/2013 9:28:33 PM PST by chessplayer

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.”

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?”

Wonder what took them so long to blame the snow storm on global warming.

Hard to believe she could have said this without the assistance of a good quatilty crack pipe on fire.

These people are absolute lunatics. We definitely need to keep firearms out of the hands of news readers. They’re all nuts.

The meteor that hit Jupiter last September? Earth AGW.

Shoemaker–Levy? Global Warming.

Big Bang? Kids playing with matches.

Pluto’s downgrade? AGW.

Dinosaur extinction?

Wild guess: Deb Feyerick voted for Obama, AGAIN!

Ok, I will come to the defense of Deb Feyerick. She may be a stupid liberal (sorry for being redundant) but she might have stumbled on something. If there is global warming, it might be caused by the Sun. It is also highly possible that the Sun’s gravity contributed to the asteroid course to intersect closely to earth. But it is also possible that Moochelle’s fat ass affects the course of asteroids and her diet contributes to the creation of global warming gasses, much in the same way as cows.

Reminds me of the dem congressman who was worried the military was going to move so much materiel to an island that it might capsize.

These people should be kept away from sharp objects, much less be allowed to pontificate in front of a news audience.

Some of the comments were pretty good.

The "Onion" called and is taking legal action against CNN for copyright infringement.

Went past gullible street to pathetic boulevard.

Although Bill Nye's a hardcore lib and warmeninger, the asteroid was a bridge too far.

ConservativeInPA: “But it is also possible that Moochelle’s fat ass affects the course of asteroids and her diet contributes to the creation of global warming gasses, much in the same way as cows.”

A fat ass could be considered a point mass which may not have a measurable impact on the course of asteroids, but it would definitely have some sort of impact. The same thing goes with global warming gasses. The impact may be insignificant compared to other factors, but yes, her farts contribute to global warming.

I like to the think of the Earth as one giant electrical circuit. Everything’s connected. The isolation between parts may be phenomenally high in some cases, but nothing is ever completely separated electrically from everything else. As the quote from Serenity goes: “You can’t stop the signal, Mal.”

I want to believe that she meant it as parody — but, she’s had so much work done on her face that she couldn’t get the facial expression right.

What a maroon!

But then again, maybe she’s a typical global warming believer? Thinks things happening in the earth’s atmosphere can affect stuff out near or beyond geosynchronous orbit.

Asteroids and global warming? Only if global warming is caused by.... THE SUN, which can affect asteroids, maybe even their orbits, most likely moving them a bit farther from the sun.

Is a meteoric event a phenomenon associated with a meteor? Or is it something else. Let’s tune in to CNN to find out.

Can stupid be so dense that it creates a black hole? Probably not, otherwise Deb Feyerick’s level of stupid would have resulted in the Earth being sucked into one.

Putting aside asteroids, I think 90% of the population associates unusual solar activity, or the suggestion of it, with global warming. In fact, I’m sure it would be hard to talk them out of it.
