Popular astrophysicist –and director of the Hayden Planetarium at the American Museum of Natural History– Neil deGrasse Tyson schooled former vice-chairman of General Motors Bob Lutz on the reality of climate change during Friday night’s edition of Real Time with Bill Maher.
After being baited by Maher on the subject of global warming, the unfortunately-named Lutz insisted that climate change was a “total crock of shit.”
As one would expect, deGrasse Tyson countered his argument with facts.
“You take all the scientists who author these papers, get them to pool their money and invest in companies that would benefit from global warming. And take all the people who are in denial of global warming, take all their money and invest in companies that would presume there is no global warming. And I would predict… you will all go broke in the next 50 years,” deGrasse Tyson said.
