Green Taliban new height of stupidity – global warming causing asteroids

Officially the most retarded thing ever blamed on global warming, a CNN anchor questions whether a blizzard with freezing temperatures is caused by global warming before asking whether an asteroid passing by was also connected with global warming in some way:

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.

    I don’t think asteroids are the only things that have dropped from the sky, it’s a fair bet this woman was dropped on her head when she was a baby.

      Hey I thought that this thing was coming from below. How can you drop in from below

        Huh?????????? never heard of gravity. Jump of a cliff at the south pole, you hit the deck. Jump of an iceberg in North pole, same result.

        • unitedtribes

          I was refering to an earlier post on this subject anyway a sincerly hope gravity isnt at play here or we will be in for a haircut

    Surely she simply made a mistake?

    For the arrogant, the ignorant and the medically insane – us humans aren’t that influential in the scheme of things – it’s called ‘Natural Phenomena’

    Never though I’d see the day where CNN would take the piss.
