GOP take notes, this is actually the best way to undermine climate change, steer into the curve.

I think they are taking notes - the site linked to by the article is Glenn Beck's "The Blaze". Now I feel dirty for having given them a view.

For some reason, very few news drones I've seen on TV know how to talk to Bill. They all kind of seem to blank out at his nerd clothes and just get derpy.

Global warming is yesterday's news. Behold and fear galaxy warming.

I notice that the video does not have Nye's reply which I am sure was "no." Nye being head of the Planetary Society and well-informed on climate change.

---------

Of course the deniers will wonder why it still snows if the world is 0.7 degrees warmer.   The warming is not enough prevent precipitation coming down as snow rather than rain.    But the whole word being, on average, 0.7 degrees warmer day in day out will result in more evaporation which will eventually come down as precipitation.  It will also shift weather patterns.

This question is a direct result of christian scientific suppression and CNN's "no minimum IQ" requirement for on-air personalities.

She just made a dumb mistake..... She was given the lead-in regarding the blizzard and the Global Warming connection, then they went to commercial, and they threw the meteor story in there too.

She's just a talking head, and they're trained to read the teleprompter, and interject minimal wisdom of their own.   I blame the producer for making it confusing on her dumb ass, more than i blame her.

This is a particularly egregious example, but I have to admit, nearly anyone is going to look a bit slow when compared to Bill Nye.

Christiane Amanpour.

It sort-of works.

/Little known fact:  CNN is actually a recursive acronym that stands for "CNN News Network".

Have you ever watched CNN? It is so far sensationalist it shouldn't be allowed to be called news. Remember, they give Nancy Grace her own TV show
 
2013-02-11 02:12:54 PM
DNRTHISA but it's my understanding for what I read a few days ago that she didn't actually ask that as a question but rather stated it as a possible option.

However she's a farking moron for even positing it as a statement.
And Bill Nye is a hack.
You're welcome.

He should of said fark you and ripped his mic off.

Blame?  I credit the producers.  Interviewers like this should be no smarter than half the audience, to make the guests explain things in ways that more people can understand, which keeps their attention.

Imagine if they were all W.F. Buckley level.  It'd be fun for the guests, but most of the audience would surf over to the Springers, judges, and game shows.

Seems like she just totally blew the transition, not that she really wanted to know if the meteor was because of global warning.

Then again, since Fark will forever mock anyone who ever makes a mistake on TV, this lady is no exception.

Ok, but there has to be limits. I mean, this is equivalent to asking "If I light a fire, does a baseball thrown by someone a few miles away tend to curve into the flames?"

It's fascinating, isn't it? It's like watching a car-crash in slow motion with a child in the front seat. You want to turn away, because you're about to watch a disaster. Very visceral, too. I'm talking blood and guts hanging from seatbelts, but, you can't turn away. You're watching this actually happen, and you can't do anything to stop it. It's almost horrifying.

I'm disappointed she didn't ask about whether the Mars Rover can roll over to view the astronaut footprints.

Jesus Christ. I've watched the video 3 times now. I'm determined to work the term "meteoric occasion" into a conversation by the end of the week. This is too good.

HotWingConspiracy: It may be god smiting us for believing the liberal lies about global warming. Disprove that, nerdlinger.


Psst, read the memo. It's called "climate change" now, because today's climate is perfect and it must endure unchanged forever, as it always has.

I for one plan on telling my wife to watch out for a meteoric occasion this Thursday.
