CNN anchor Deb Feyerick suggested Saturday afternoon that global warming may extend further than our globe.
The host wrapped up a segment on the impact that climate change may have had on the winter storm that hit the Northeast this weekend by saying: “Every time we see a storm like this lately, the first question to pop into a lot of people’s minds is whether or not global warming is to blame? I’ll talk to Bill Nye, ‘the science guy,’ about devastating storms and climate change.”
Miss Feyerick then turned to a feature on a large asteroid that will just miss Earth as it passes by on Feb. 15.
“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,” the anchor said. “What’s coming our way? Is this the effect of, perhaps, global warming? Or is this just some meteoric occasion?”
Mr. Nye didn’t gratify the speculation but instead focused on the asteroid itself, saying the impact could level an entire city. The asteroid will miss Earth by about 15 minutes, the “science guy” said.
