The article seemed light on evidence to justify their claim. So I ran a quick search on Google Scholar for ‘climate change‘ and found thousands of articles.  As an after-thought, I ran a search on Google Scholar  for ‘Neil deGrasse Tyson’ and ‘climate change’. 

Personally, I struggled to fins any publications by Mr. Tyson on climate change.

Surely it’s not about cherry-picking the evidence, rather summarizing and analyzing it? Perhaps, next time Futurism could look for evidence?

Thoughts?
