Neil deGrasse Tyson is one of the most famous and renowned scientists in the world. He has also been very vocal about the need for the United States, and the rest of the world, to continue to invest in technology, science, and exploration in order to further mankind.
Like many people over the past month, Neil deGrasse Tyson has been very vocal against the proposed budget cuts that have been set forth by President Donald Trump. One area of focus of Trump’s has been to cut back a lot on the amount of money spent on NASA, agriculture sciences, education, medical science, and other areas. Ever since the budget cuts were announced, Tyson has sent out a series of Tweets that have shown significant disapproval.
Tyson has sent out a series of Tweets that all had the same conclusion: the fastest way to make America worse at something is to cut funding in these areas. This has included making American sicker faster due to cuts in healthcare, making American dumber by making cuts in education, and making America weak again by cutting technology advancement cuts.
Overall, Tyson has made a plea for the government to turn down the budget cuts. He has shown significant concern that these cuts, most of which will be reapplied to the defense budget, will have a lasting negative impact on the country and rest of the world.
