Neil deGrasse Tyson Claims That Santa Is The Greatest Victim Of Climate Change

Neil deGrasse Tyson strikes again, hot on the heels of some not-so-well-received criticism of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. This time, America’s favorite astrophysicist has some choice (yet tongue firmly in cheek) words on Twitter for climate change deniers: do something, or Santa will pay the price.

Still, it wasn’t all doomsday for Santa on deGrasse Tyson’s feed; he took some time out of his Christmas to ruminate on some of the weirder holiday traditions and hallmarks, and sent a few aspirational words to the man in red about his rotund waistline. However, something tells me that parents everywhere would have a much worse Christmas Eve if the cookies and milk for “Santa” tradition got abandoned for a healthier option (although hot tea sounds pretty wonderful).

Seriously, can you even imagine the horrific cleanup after all twelve days of Christmas?
