The image of a black hole that was made public yesterday had Neil deGrasse Tyson using it to send a message about man-made global warming:

Tyson’s approach sounds just like another noted scientist: Rep. Ted Lieu. We’re guessing we haven’t heard the end of that approach.

“We took this picture of something in deep space so you should just assume we’re correct about everything else” doesn’t sound very science-y.


It appears that the science is not settled.
