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.
Odd. No one is in denial of America’s Aug 21 total solar eclipse. Like Climate Change, methods & tools of science predict it.
