My refrigerator stopped working. Global warming? Sydney’s tail bump. Global Warming? Kittens! Global Warming?

Via NewsBusters.

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.

    No shortage of stupidness these days. Saw a piece on the great pyramid where the top scholar & main guy re Egptian antiquites was taking a small group of young archelogist students into the great pyramid to see the unseeable — the five chambers. He had only gone in there twice himself, so it was indeed a great honor to be part of this group. His passion for thepyramind, his overwhelming repesct for the place could not have been stronger. He warned them all that there was a real danger involved and warned them not to go if they were at all worried. Well, part way in one girl had a panic attack and almost backed out. Later on she proceeded to pee in the pyramid, causing the high offcial to almost explode at the incident. Well, you say, she was unable to control herslef, she didn’t mean any harm. Finally after long 28 foot ladder trecks and squeezing into tight places, he showed them graffit left by the workers who built the pyarmid. How this linked to other info they had on the workers and as he marveled at how they could have built this mind boggling wonder, another student said, yeah, how could they, maybe it was aliens. I think I saw sparks fly from the expert’s head. I can only wonder how these two students were ever selected to under take this journey. I wonder if they are a sign of just how dumb, thoughtless and disrepectful we are becoming

    “Well actually Deb, the real global warming starts after the asteroid hits!”

    Just the next thing to swallow whole after first accepting evolution, then a finely imagined 5 billion year old fossil record to prop that up, then tectonic plates, you learn to accept whatever the professor says is “…the way it is…”. Einstein said imagination is better than knowledge(or something close to that) but it doesn’t replace it.
    And these people make fun of people of faith believing in something they cannot see! lol!

    You mean meteorology isn’t the study of meteors? Darn!

    Bless her heart, she’s a liberal. Seems she learned a new buzzword from the liberal talking points memo, “Global Warming”. Anything related to weather, or outer space, just say “global warming”.

    Sounds like she’s been eating the Kool Aid right out of the envelope.

      LOL! That’s a great visual, strider 🙂

      Btw, Kitten, why stop there? My printer ran out of ink — global warming!

      And Tammy, if you lived in Manhattan, you would not have to worry about your fridge – just put all your food on the windowsill, it’s that cold. (Of course, if anything fell off, it would probably be “bye-bye-pedestrian-below”
      But then, you could blame it on: yep, Global Warming 🙂 )

    Uh, Deb Feyerick, I don’t believe global warming is causing that asteroid. However, I do believe global warming is the reason Pluto was demoted from a planet status to dwarf planet.

    Did anyone notice she’s Blond? That…explains…EVERYTHING!

  9. Maynard says:

    Which reminds me…why do they call them “hemorrhoids” and not “asteroids”?

  10. Cathode Rays says:

    Stupidity rules at all the networks except FOX. AGW scientists have less excuse.

  11. Pat_S says:

    Something ominous has to be caused either by global warming or the mean Republicans in Congress. Deb went to media school.

  12. Charles_TX says:

    I would have loved to have seen Nye’s response – he’s a big AGW alarmist.
