You may have heard that an asteroid will miss the Earth by only about 17,000 miles on February 15th. You may not have heard that a certain CNN anchor thinks this asteroid was caused by global warming (H/T The Other McCain). There’s a video at the link, but here’s the quote:
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?
It’s funny enough when global warming is blamed on every weather problem — including colder temperatures (that’s why “global warming” is falling out of favor and being replaced with “climate change”) — but how could global warming (on Earth) cause asteroids (usually nowhere near Earth) to come near the Earth? Are those poor, cold asteroids just trying to warm up or something?
Perhaps we should stop using
global warming “climate change” as a perpetual scapegoat for every weather problem.
