Asteroid Caused By Global Warming????

February 14, 2013

A CNN anchor has asked on live television whether a meteor hurtling past Earth was the result of global warming.

Deborah Feyeric made the faux pas when she transitioned from a discussion about global warming and the blizzard that struck to east coast into a a segment about Asteroid 2012 DA14 - which is projected to pass just 17,200 miles from Earth on Friday.

'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 says. 'What's coming our way? Is this the effect of, perhaps, global warming? Or is this just some meteoric occasion?'

Is it just me or has your typical reporter or anchor seem to have room temperature IQ

    Summary:  Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change.

An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
