Neil deGrasse Tyson Burns Donald Trump Over Possible Paris Climate Deal Withdrawal

President Donald Trump is reportedly poised to pull the U.S. out of the Paris climate agreement, and Neil deGrasse Tyson is clearly not happy.

In just one blistering tweet Wednesday, the astrophysicist threw major shade on the Trump administration’s controversial climate change policies — and suggested why it was considering withdrawing from the landmark deal in the first place.

If I and my advisors had never learned what Science is or how & why it works, then I’d consider pulling out of the Paris Climate Accord too.

“If I and my advisors had never learned what Science is or how & why it works, then I’d consider pulling out of the Paris Climate Accord too,” he wrote.

The post has since gone viral, with many of his followers appearing to agree with his sentiment:

You have science on your side. Trump and the lunatic fringe have only covfefe on their side.

@realDonaldTrump when one of the preeminent astrophysicists of our time tells you a thing, you NEED TO LISTEN. He’s not making it up.

Intelectual curiosity is essential for Science. How does this mesh with @realDonaldTrump & his enablers positions? Facts don’t even exist!
