Culture of Doubt: Niel DeGrasse Tyson

As I mentioned in class, here is my favorite living astrophysicist Niel DeGrasse Tyson  (but disclaimer, I am a Saganist first and foremost)  talking about the media allowing this culture of doubt around science. As Obama says at the beginning of the video, we would not give time to the “flat earth society” so why do we to the evolution or climate change deniers in the name of fair and balanced news. As Newton says, this just confuses the argument and buys time for slow violence.
