But do not worry about that. The scientific community says it is much ado about nothing, Stacy McCain, however…………
They’re scientists, after all, which means they’re never wrong, so ignorant laymen like us should have complete confidence in their judgment:
Anyone happening to glance towards the heavens in a week’s time and glimpses a 50-metre-long lump of rock hurtling ominously through the skies need not panic.
Although it will pass closer to us than any asteroid has for the past 15 years — closer even than the TV satellites that girdle the planet — Nasa insists that 2012 DA14 will miss Earth by a good 17,100 miles (27,520km).
“No Earth impact is possible,” said Donald Yeomans, an astronomer with the US space agency.
In other words: PANIC! It’s going to destroy us all!
The good news is this. If it does hit us, we will not be around to listen to Al Gore blame asteroids on climate change. Also, it will be the end of reality shows.
UPDATE! The obligatory “Did Global Warming Cause the Asteroid Card” has already been played!
CNN anchor Deb Feyerick asked Saturday afternoon if an approaching asteroid, which will pass by Earth on February 15, “is an example of, perhaps, global warming?”
UGH! Is there any absurdity the Left will not stoop to?
