Famed astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson used the impending total solar eclipse to make a point about science and climate change.

In a tweet on Thursday morning, Tyson noted that the same people who deny climate change have no problem believing that science can predict a solar eclipse.

The tweet had more than 40,000 retweets and over 100,000 "likes" by the time of publication.
