Newsbusters picked this up. They have the video….
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?”
Nye resisted confirming her hypothesis.
News Busters was apparently taken aback by this and asked if this was a parody or something. I’ve watched the video, and affirm, she’s a moron.
Given the way Morano man-handled Nye when they spoke about climate change, I’m doubtful that Nye is the best one to ask.
Greg Gutfield did remind people ……….
For those of you laughing at CNN’s idea that global warming causes asteroids, you forget that warm climates tend to attract visitors. #face
He was making the obvious reference to a paper which postulated that our GHGs could attract ET.
This is a perfect example of the mindless unquestioning idiocy emanating from the nutters.
