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?”

You mean they weren’t worried that they might fall off the edge?

Did she just say that Globull warming is causing asteroids to hit earth?
I keep wiping my eyes and saying "this isn't so, this cannot be".

“But, does it bend space, time and dimension?”

Black holes do.

Wow, that is just brilliant! One of the best replies I think I've ever seen.

“I honestly believe CNN is insane and sees evil as good!”

That doesn’t mean that they are insane; it means that they are evil.

She’s correct. Asteroids are caused by Galactic Warming, and that is a direct consequence of space aliens driving SUSs (sports utility saucers).

Global warming? Nah, I saw bush and cheney in the hurricane machine hovering over Boston. If you look on weather maps, as the storm departs you can see what looks like an eye (of a hurricane) - bush’s fault, definetly bush’s fault.

Do you have to fail an IQ test to be an anchor at CNN? Epochal stupidity.

Hold on a second people. She is onto something here.

1. An asteroid passing by earth is responsible for global warming.
2. Obama wants to end global warming.
3. Obama kills our space program so now we cannot destroy the asteroid.

Hence....

Global warming is Obamas fault.

They peruse the DNC donor lists, the higher the donation, the lower the IQ...

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


I understand that it is not an asteroid...it’s a dingle-berry falling from that monsterous ass of Moochelle’s fanny.

When it hits it’s gonna really make a big stink!

That hot, burning, painful sensation is a HEMORRHOID, NOT an ASteroid!

I know that’s just semantics, but libs are notoriously anti-semantic, so that explains everything!

In view of my observation that news readers are usually scientifically illiterate, I’ll assume that this was not a parody.

Gaseous CO2 has more gravity then other matter? Who would have thunk it!

Stupid does not even come close. That said an expanding (warmer) atmosphere can have an effect on low orbiting satellites (see Skylab) but that is an entirely different matter and the Earth is not warming so the upper atmosphere is not expanding.

"Greater-than-expected solar activity[3]:362 heated the outer layers of the Earth's atmosphere and thereby increased drag on Skylab. By late 1977, NORAD accurately forecast a reentry in mid-1979;[17] a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) scientist criticized NASA for using an inaccurate model for the second most-intense sunspot cycle in a century, and for ignoring NOAA predictions published in 1976.[3]:362-363"
