It’s often said that there’s no such thing as a stupid question.

Well, we’re gonna bring in our science guy, Bill Nye. And 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, global warming, or is this just some meteoric occasion?
Hey, if you can convince yourself that global warming causes blizzards, why wouldn’t it magically attract asteroids? The whole thing is about Gaia punishing us for our hubris, after all. Blizzards, hurricanes, heat waves, cold snaps, volcanoes, Honey Boo Boo, asteroids… you name it, global warming causes it. Sky gods angry! Flee! AIIIIIEEEEEE!!!
