CNN Anchor Deb Feyerick Apparently Thinks Global Warming Causes Asteroids

Posted on | February 10, 2013 | 57 Comments

As previously noted here, a large asteroid will pass within 17,000 miles of Earth — a near-miss, astronomy-wise — next week. And this provides a network airhead the chance to demonstrate he utter ignorance in an interview with scientist Bill Nye:

“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?”

Remember: The media elite are your intellectual superiors. The proof of their superiority is that they’re on TV, and you’re not.

    Bill Nye perfected that goofy, nerdy “science” schtick back on “Almost Live” (if you remember that show, you also know what a “half-rack” is). He’s a Mechanical Engineer, by education and trade. He only gets to go on CNN because he’ll reliably say “Yup, sure. Global Warming!”

    However, the lovely Miss Feyerick was rocking a short blue dress this morning, with legs that could easily match the Fox News babes, so you have to give her some props!

  • Dan Collins

    Media elite perform a multiplier effect on global enstupiding.

  • McGehee

    After the segment I’m sure someone took her aside and reminded her, “That’s not what we call them on TV, Deb. On TV we call them ‘hemorrhoids.'”

    Did they mock her as an idiot off camera? I hope so.

    Are you doing a Rule 5 Ms. Feyerick?

  • Evi L. Bloggerlady

    Bill Nye is a tool.

  • IndyMason

    What a twit….. I had to choose a vowel, I went with “I”.

    I can’t tell whether or not that’s her drool cup overflowing or just another comeback dripping from her chin.

  • Dana

    My site’s Rule 5 kind of goes in a different direction.

    Doesn’t matter. We can mock her as an idiot right here, free of charge, no waiting required!

  • Wombat_socho

    No reason not to branch out…;)

  • gahrie

    The Earth has been warming for most of the last 12,000 years, when the last ice Age ended. Personally, I prefer it this way.

  • JeffWeimer

    Yes. literally a propaganda tool.

  • Evi L. Bloggerlady

    Yes we can!

    Great Rule 5.

  • Teresamerica

    Media elites sure are experts, experts at ignorance and loony ideas.

  • Robert Evans

    Wonder if she meant hemorrhoids?

  • Paul Madley

    Too bad Bill Nye isn’t dead. That’s what you’re saying? You’re saying you wish Bill Nye was dead?

  • Old Rebel

    It is the wrath of Gaia …

  • Buffalobob

    Deb “Science are hard”.

  • Paul Madley

    Yep! Bill Nye knows nothing and is definitely wrong and he is paid to support the liberals lie of global warming myth…

  • jakee308

    I got a little drunk the other day; Global Warming.

    My girl friend ran off with my babysitter; Global Warming.

    My rent just went up; Global Warming.

    They just had a Huge Blizzard in the NE; Global Warming.

    I see a trend here.

    Just sayin’

  • jakee308

    Bill Nye needs a test tube rammed up where it’s nice and dark and warm. And then broken off.

    He’s the kind of Psuedo/Propagandist “Scientist” that warps children’s minds and he should be penalized heavily for his Child Abuse.

  • rjacobse

    Bill Nye has a bachellor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering. He puts on a good show, but he’s no scientist.

  • JeffWeimer

    Ah, so you’re the one.

    It’s not about Bill Nye, it’s about CNN.

    So as not to insult our LGBT ‘friends’, I spell it ‘Gaya’, Reb.

  • alanhenderson

    Earth-bound asteroids are not caused by global warming. They’re a plot hatched by the Cybermen.

  • Wombat_socho

    Sounds like the opening verse to a country song.

  • Rob Crawford

    Don’t worry, Adric will send that one back to cause the extinction of the dinosaurs.

  • K-Bob

    And also, spell it GBLT, and pernounce it “giblet.”

  • K-Bob

    Only because it’s true.

    Some would say we’re actuallly on the brink of another ass age.

  • K-Bob

    I didn’t know Bill Nye was dead.

    Dead, to begin with.

  • rmnixondeceased

    I’m dead yet even I recognize the utter crap that is “Global Warming” and the attempt by the left to revise science and reality to fit their agenda of Zombification of the American Electorate. I have a solution.

  • rmnixondeceased

    With gravy?

  • rmnixondeceased

    Quick, everyone go out and buy 55 gallon drums of Preparation H!

  • rmnixondeceased

    Heh. Death isn’t so bad …
