Neil deGrasse Tyson in a new video is dismayed at American rejection of science, though it was integral to the shaping of the US. "Science is a fundamental part of the country that we are."

He sees standing in denial of science and rising to power as a "recipe for the complete dismantling of our informed democracy."

Right after that statement is a clip of Pence, as a congressman, speaking to congress and saying, "Let us demand that educators around America teach evolution not as fact, but as theory." Science denial, but continues to get elected.

Science is not affected by the intentionally misinformed science deniers. Unfortunately,
our understanding of science and our political system are both negatively affected by the
 science deniers.

Tyson says, "When you have an established scientific emergent truth, it is true whether or not you believe in it."

Call your elected reprensentatives and remind them that Science is Real and they need to
take that into account when legislating. If they done, vote them out. Better yet, recall
them now.
