CNN Asks: Did Global Warming Have to do With the Recent Near-Earth Asteroid Fly-By?

You may have thought it was a little silly to suggest that flatulent bovines were the unfortunate and inconvenient cause of global warming. Or that “manmade global warming” results in increases in crime and war. And weather patterns like tornados, floods, earthquakes, rainfall, snow and cloudy days. And other undesirable things like indigestion, bad moods and traffic.

But it wasn’t enough to blame every bad thing that happens on this planet on global warming. How about things that happen out in space? It’s possible, right?

CNN had just finished a segment talking about how all this cold weather we’ve been experiencing recently was prompted by global warming when the CNN anchor had on Bill the “Science” Guy to talk about an asteroid that was headed our way. One that, according to the science guy, flew by on February 15th and “miss[ed] us by about 15 minutes.”

The anchor Deb Feyerick asked Bill Nye if this asteroid is the result of global warming. I’m not joking. See for yourself:

She’s for sure succumbed to a lot of scorn in the conservative media, and maybe in some liberal circles, but in reality, what she’s suggesting isn’t all that different from what global warming fanatics already believe. If global warming is caused by gassy cows and exhaling, and if global warming itself is causing the Earth to blow up, perhaps it’s not that far-fetched to believe that global warming could somehow attract asteroids.

In fact, I’m sure the UN’s IPCC is working on proving that right now. They’ll start with their conclusion that global warming attracts asteroids, and then all they have to do is finagle some data points until they reach the conclusion that they’ve already decided is true.

It’s rather ironic that in that video segment, Feyerick wanted to make sure people weren’t alarmed by this asteroid; that there’s no reason for anyone to be nervous. But she was the one that suggested that “global warming” caused this asteroid to fly by so close. One alarmist to another.
