The unspoken creed of the climate change religion is never let a severe weather event go to waste. (Oddly, they often argue that weather and climate are different things when current conditions don’t suggest an emergency.) Naturally, pompous astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson is using a serious, life threatening storm as an opportunity to make smug, yet woefully unscientific, observations.
Hmm. Don’t see much denial of @NOAA climate scientists who have predicted Hurricane Harvey’s devastating path into Texas.

Hmm. Joe Science doesn’t seem to know that climate science and meteorology aren’t even the same discipline.
Tyson even got busted by an actual climate scientist.
Hi Neil, from a climate scientist – your tweet isn't helping the widespread confusion of weather & climate….we only do the long-term stats

Even with impending weather events, meteorology isn’t an exact science. When meteorologists predict the paths of hurricanes they almost always indicate that the range of probabilities becomes greater the farther into the future they look. Also, sometimes storms don’t do what they’re “supposed to.” To use this process to ridicule anyone’s “denial” that Tyson or anyone else can predict what the climate is going to be like in 100 years is asinine.
hmmmm… which one of the four or five major track predictions are you talking about? …oh, the one that ends up being right. Got it..

For decades we’ve been told by alarmists like Tyson that climate change was going to increase the number and intensity of hurricanes. It hasn’t happened. Bozos like Tyson are probably just relieved to at least see a hurricane making landfall so they can scare the people who aren’t keeping score.
