On a tip from Ed Kilbane
A couple days ago a CNN anchor asked a meteorologist whether the asteroid that is going to "nearly miss' earth (by 17,000 miles) could have been caused by global warming. Now comes this one!
You can add this to your list of, “I cannot believe someone actually said that.”
Former chairwoman and CEO of Playboy Enterprises, Christie Hefner—who is currently working with the George Soros organization Center for American Progress—was recently on MSNBC’s Morning Joe program. She was desperately trying to explain why Chicago has such a high murder rate from guns, outpacing even troop deaths in Afghanistan in all of 2012. This despite the fact that Chicago has some of the toughest gun laws in the nation.
Her answer: it’s hot. “Yes, last year we hit a record number of murders from guns [in Chicago],” Hefner, said. “And this year we are already outpacing last year’s numbers. Now, there are contributing factors that are not under anybody’s control and may seem odd, but it is factually true. One of them is actually the weather. There is a dramatic increase in gun violence when it is warmer. And we are having this climate change effect that is driving that.”
Needless to say if I had a subscription to Playboy it would be cancelled.
