Fox News’ problem, like Republicans, fanatical Christians, and their climate change-denying fossil fuel associates with Neil deGrasse Tyson is that besides being a likeable and articulate African American, he is single-handedly decimating any energy industry claim that climate change is a liberal plot, a hoax, or not man-made. It is certain that Tyson understands the influence he, and Cosmos, is having on informing the population about the urgency of addressing climate change as well as the program’s value for promoting science as the only solution to saving the environment in the short term and the human race over the long term.

Loved this comment:

Neil degrasse Tyson, has more brains than the entire FOX News. These people just can't believe a black man is more intelligent than them. And I won't even waste my words on Gavin McInnes, except to say he doesn't even have the brains of Homer Simpson. But as far as FOX News, trying to pass themselves off as professional news media is a joke. There is nothing professional about them except their hatred and stupidity. You could learn more from "Sponge Bob" than these clowns.
I remain unconvinced by any claims anyone has ever made about the existence or the power of a divine force operating in the universe."

Tyson is a very smart guy. I have no doubt he knew there would be attacks like this, so any response will be a good one; or possibly he won't respond at all.
