Climate Change Denier Feels the Burn

Below is a recent exchange of tweets on Twitter. The blog post continues after the image:

Twitter conversation between astrophysicist and climate change denier

You can read more about the incident here and here. Follow Dr. Katherine J. Mack (@AstroKatie) on Twitter. Can a troll be so stupid as to not know who he is insulting? Like it or not, the realities and consequences of climate change are already happening. Yet, some people seem to insist upon denial... learning the hard way.

I've met climate-change skeptics who, in an attempt to appear informed and reasonable, claimed, "I believe in climate change, but I'm not convinced it is caused by humans." The Union of Concerned Scientists explained how and why we know that today's climate change is primarily caused by humans. That explanation should be mandatory reading by everyone.

Everyone.

Also this month, a conservative radio talk-show host criticized Neil deGrasse Tyson, the Frederick P. Rose Director at the Hayden Planetarium in New York City. Dr. Tyson thoroughly debunked the fact-free criticism. Is it insult-an-astrophysicist month?

Geez.

Thanks. I've added the climate change links to my bookmarks on climate change.
