Fishtronaut: May 21, 2018

Dear Mr. VP,

This morning, in the car. My preschooler:

“Mommy, when we pollute the air, it goes up in the sky. Then it wraps around the Earth like a blanket. That makes the Earth too hot. The temperature is rising.”

“Where’d you learn that?”

“Oh, Fishtronaut.”


Right. So, a kids animated television show about a fish in a spacesuit has taught my kid more about climate change than you seem to have learned as the guy with easy access to NASA scientists. Could I get an explanation for that? I believe the only possible explanation is “willful ignorance.”
