Neil deGrasse Tyson on Why Science Has Become So Political

Another delightful installment of Esquire‘s video series Mysteries of the Universe with Neil deGrasse Tyson asks Tyson, “Why has science become so political?”

If you now rise to a position of power … and you are basing legislation on your belief system that rejects objective truths that could affect us all, that is the beginning of the end of an informed democracy.

This particular question is alarmingly relevant, living in a country where terms like “climate change” are being banned despite being accurate. Yikes!
