Neil deGrasse Tyson Slams Republican Climate Change Deniers

Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson is criticizing those who deny that climate change exists.

In a recent interview, the “Cosmos” host didn’t hold back when asked about his opinion on climate change deniers.

“At some point, I don’t know how much energy they have to keep fighting it,” Tyson said of politicians who insist that climate change is either not happening or that mankind in no way affects it. “It’s an emergent scientific truth.”

Tyson continued saying the subject in question shouldn’t be about whether it exists but how to pass the right legislation to stop it.

“The Republican Party, so many of its members are resistant to embracing the facts of climate change that the legislation that they should be eager to influence, they’re left outside the door,” he said. “Because they think the debate is whether or not it’s happening, rather than what policy and legislation can serve their interests going forward.”

    Meanwhile, the leader of the fossil fuel industry’s anti-science smear campaign, James Taylor of Heartland, is having a major hissy fit about the final episode of Cosmos. Taylor’s extensive (and expensive) network assures his essay will have wide visibility. It’s on the Federalist site now, and a version will probably make it to Forbes op-ed page this week. And of course Limbaugh and Savage and the rest of the angry-talkers will be quoting it for months, often in the same breath as bemoaning the “skeptics” (deniers) lack of media access.
