When the GOP was proposing the tax cut bill and repeal of Obama-era net neutrality rules, Rep. Nancy Pelosi warned that it would culminate in “Armageddon” and the end of the world. We laughed, but if Pelosi doesn’t believe us, maybe she’ll listen to Neil deGrasse Tyson, who confirmed that tax cuts won’t finish off the planet — or if they do, the effect will be very delayed:
In five-billion years, as the Sun begins to die, its outer layers of glowing plasma will expand stupendously, engulfing the orbits of Mercury, then Venus, as the charred ember that was once the oasis of life called Earth vaporizes into the vacuum of space.
Have a nice day!
