Neil DeGrasse Tyson Attempts to Exploit Hurricane for Global Warming

For those of you not already in the know, Neil DeGrasse Tyson is the Al Sharpton of ‘science’.

And, like his econut pal Bill Nye, the alleged science guy, he uses his degree in astrophysics as an excuse to masquerade as an expert in every other field of science known to man.

To wit, he took the occasion this week to comment via Twitter on the landfall of Harvey in Texas peddling his pro-global warming agenda.

And it was a major facepalm fail wherein he confused once again the fields of meteorology and climatology.

He tweeted, “Don’t see much denial of @NOAA climate scientists who have predicted Hurricane Harvey’s devastating path into Texas.”

The problem specifically is that the path wasn’t predicted by climate scientists because they don’t do that…meteorologists do.

Thanks for playing, Neil.

Here’s more from Redstate…

The unspoken creed of the climate change religion is never let a severe weather event go to waste. (Oddly, they often argue that weather and climate are different things when current conditions don’t suggest an emergency.) Naturally, pompous astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson is using a serious, life threatening storm as an opportunity to make smug, yet woefully unscientific, observations.

Hmm. Joe Science doesn’t seem to know that climate science and meteorology aren’t even the same discipline.

Tyson even got busted by an actual climate scientist.

Even with impending weather events, meteorology isn’t an exact science. When meteorologists predict the paths of hurricanes they almost always indicate that the range of probabilities becomes greater the farther into the future they look. Also, sometimes storms don’t do what they’re “supposed to.”  To use this process to ridicule anyone’s “denial” that Tyson or anyone else can predict what the climate is going to be like in 100 years is asinine.
