Asteroid 2012 DA14 will pass extraordinarily close to Earth on Friday, within 17,200 miles of the planet. In discussing the massive rock hurtling by Earth, one CNN anchor yesterday inexplicably tried to link the celestial event with terrestrial global warming.
Following a report on the massive Nor’easter than pounded New England, CNN anchor Deb Feyerick was introducing Bill Nye for a discussion on the asteroid.
“We want to bring in our science guy, Bill Nye, and talk about something else that’s falling from the sky, and that is an asteroid,” Feyerick said. “What’s coming our way? Is this the effect of, perhaps, global warming?”
Even Nye, never one to shy away from outlandish predictions of global demise from climate change, ignored the asinine introduction and question.
Alarmists try to link a wide variety of calamities to global warming and manmade climate change.
When it is hot they blame global warming. When cold, global warming is to blame as well.
Natural disasters are frequently blamed on manmade climate change but despite alarmists’ predictions, we have not seen an increase in number or intensity of these events.
